    Explanation
    A standard bowling game consists of ten frames. In each frame, the bowler gets two chances to knock down all ten pins. If they are able to knock down all the pins with their first ball, it is called a strike. If they need a second ball to knock down the remaining pins, it is called a spare. At the end of the ten frames, the bowler's score is calculated based on the number of pins knocked down in each frame, with the possibility of earning bonus points for strikes and spares. Therefore, the correct answer is ten.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    What do you put on the end of your cue stick in order to ensure you make clean contact with the cue ball?

    • A.

      Chalk

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Tar

    • D.

      Oil

    Correct Answer
    A. Chalk
    Explanation
    Chalk is applied to the end of a cue stick to ensure clean contact with the cue ball. When the cue stick is chalked, it creates friction between the cue tip and the cue ball, preventing any miscues or slips. This helps the player to have better control over the shot and ensures a more accurate and precise strike on the cue ball. Water, tar, and oil do not provide the same friction and grip as chalk, making them unsuitable for this purpose.
