      Triangle

    • C.

      Rectangle

    Correct Answer
    B. Triangle
    Explanation
    The triangle is the strongest building shape because it distributes forces evenly throughout its structure. The triangular shape has a strong base and two sloping sides, which allows for better weight distribution and load-bearing capacity. This shape also resists deformation and is less likely to collapse under pressure or external forces. Additionally, the triangular shape is commonly used in architecture and engineering to create stable and durable structures, such as bridges and skyscrapers.

      8 years

    • C.

      10 years

    Correct Answer
    A. 4 years
    Explanation
    The Olympic games are held every 4 years because this time frame allows for adequate preparation and organization of the event. It also aligns with the historical tradition of the ancient Olympic games, which were held every four years in ancient Greece. This interval allows athletes to train, qualify, and compete in multiple Olympic games throughout their careers, ensuring a fair and competitive environment. Additionally, the four-year cycle allows for the rotation of host cities, giving different countries the opportunity to showcase their culture and infrastructure on a global stage.
