  • 8. 

    8. A tortoise is not a shelled reptile famed for its slowness and longevity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a tortoise is indeed a shelled reptile that is well-known for its slowness and longevity. Tortoises are characterized by their hard protective shell and their slow movement, which is often associated with their long lifespan. Therefore, the statement contradicts the known characteristics of a tortoise.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    9. The Giant Tortoise of Galapagos may have a lifespan of more than 150 years.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the Giant Tortoise of Galapagos is known for its exceptionally long lifespan. These tortoises have been observed to live for over 150 years, making them one of the longest-living species on Earth. This longevity can be attributed to various factors, including their slow metabolism, large size, and ability to store water and food in their bodies. The Galapagos Islands' isolated and protected environment also contributes to their extended lifespan by reducing predation and providing abundant food sources.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement mentions that "They need to be tended carefully in warm climates and must have a warm place in which they can hibernate." However, this is incorrect. The correct statement would be that they need to be tended carefully in cold climates and must have a cold place in which they can hibernate. Therefore, the answer is False.
