    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Backs." In football, the players who are stationed behind the linemen and are responsible for carrying or passing the football are called backs. This term refers to positions such as the quarterback, running back, and fullback. They play a crucial role in the offense by either running with the ball or throwing it to other players.

    Correct Answer
    E. Cut-back
    Explanation
    A cut-back is an offensive maneuver where the player initially moves wide towards the back line and then quickly changes direction to cut back towards the center of the line. This move is often used to deceive the defense and create space for the player to advance towards the goal. It allows the player to quickly change direction and catch the defenders off guard, making it an effective offensive strategy.

    Correct Answer
    A. Forward pass
    Explanation
    A forward pass is an offensive play where the ball is thrown towards the line of scrimmage. This play is used to advance the ball down the field and potentially gain yards or score a touchdown. It is a strategic move to outsmart the opposing team's defense and create opportunities for the offense to make progress. A forward pass can be caught by a receiver, allowing the offense to continue their drive and potentially score points.

    Correct Answer
    D. Handoff
    Explanation
    A handoff is an offensive play in which one back hands off the ball to another back who attempts to advance the ball. This play is commonly used in football to quickly transfer the ball from one player to another in order to create opportunities for running plays. Unlike a forward pass or lateral pass, a handoff involves a direct exchange of the ball between players without throwing it. Therefore, the correct answer is handoff.

      Lateral pass

    Correct Answer
    E. Lateral pass
    Explanation
    A lateral pass refers to an offensive play where the ball is passed sideways or backward to the line of scrimmage. This type of pass is often used to deceive the defense or create opportunities for the offense to gain more yards. Unlike a forward pass, a lateral pass does not carry the risk of an incomplete pass or interception. It allows the offense to maintain possession of the ball while potentially advancing it in a different direction.

      Cut-back

    Correct Answer
    A. Line of scrimmage
    Explanation
    The correct answer is line of scrimmage. The line of scrimmage is an imaginary line or vertical plane that is parallel to the goal lines and passes through the end of the balls nearer a team's goal line. It is used to determine the starting point for each play in American football. The offensive team must line up behind the line of scrimmage, while the defensive team must stay on their side of the line until the play begins.

    Correct Answer
    C. Neutral zone
    Explanation
    The correct answer is neutral zone. The neutral zone refers to the area between the lines of scrimmage for each team in American football. It is an imaginary line that separates the offense and defense before the play starts. The neutral zone is important because both teams must stay on their respective sides until the ball is snapped. Any movement across the neutral zone before the snap is considered an offside penalty.

    • E.

      Handoff

    Correct Answer
    D. Offside
    Explanation
    When an offensive player is ahead of the ball before it is snapped, it is considered offside. Offside is a penalty in football where an offensive player crosses the line of scrimmage before the ball is snapped. This gives the offensive team an unfair advantage as they are gaining an extra advantage by being closer to the line of scrimmage. Offside results in a penalty and the offensive team is pushed back five yards from the original line of scrimmage.

      True

    • B.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

  • 13. 

    Players can rush the quarteback

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Players can rush the quarterback" is false. In American football, only a specific number of players from the defense are allowed to rush towards the quarterback in an attempt to tackle or sack them. This is known as the "pass rush." However, not all players are allowed to rush the quarterback. Offensive linemen are responsible for protecting the quarterback and preventing the defense from reaching them. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that all players can rush the quarterback.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Quarterbacks cannot run with the ball

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "Quarterbacks cannot run with the ball" is true. In American football, quarterbacks are typically not known for their running abilities. Their primary role is to pass the ball to their teammates. While there are some quarterbacks who are also skilled runners, it is not a requirement for the position. Running with the ball is typically done by running backs or wide receivers. Therefore, the statement is accurate.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    It takes 4 downs to get a 1st

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In American football, a team has four downs or attempts to advance the ball ten yards. If they successfully move the ball ten yards within those four downs, they earn a new set of downs and a first down. Therefore, the statement "It takes 4 downs to get a 1st" is true as it accurately describes the basic rule of the game.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    All players must be onside before the ball can be snapped

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In American football, the concept of "offsides" refers to a player being on the wrong side of the line of scrimmage at the time the ball is snapped. Being onside means that all players on the offense must be positioned on or behind the line of scrimmage before the ball can be put into play. This rule ensures fair play and prevents teams from gaining an unfair advantage by having players positioned too far forward before the play begins. Therefore, the statement is true.
