    Correct Answer
    A. Temperature
    Explanation
    Temperature is the measure of how hot or cold something feels. It is a physical quantity that indicates the level of heat present in an object or environment. Temperature can be measured using a thermometer, which is a device specifically designed for this purpose. The freezing point is the temperature at which a substance changes from a liquid to a solid state, but it is not the measure of how hot or cold something feels. Therefore, the correct answer is temperature.

    The weather person is referring to precipitation when he says, "We have ice, sleet and snow falling."

In this case, the weather person is specifically mentioning ice, sleet, and snow as types of precipitation that are currently falling.

    Correct Answer
    evaporates
    precipitation
    Explanation
    The diagram represents the water cycle, which is the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the Earth's surface. The first blank is filled with "evaporates" because it shows water from oceans, lakes, and rivers turning into water vapor due to heat from the sun. The second blank is filled with "precipitation" because it shows the water vapor condensing into clouds and then falling back to the Earth as rain, snow, sleet, or hail.
