    • E.

      1495

    Correct Answer
    C. 1895
    Explanation
    Volleyball was first introduced in 1895. This answer is supported by the fact that volleyball was invented by William G. Morgan in that year. Morgan, a physical education director, created the game as an alternative to basketball for older adults. He initially called it "Mintonette," but it was later renamed to volleyball. Therefore, 1895 is the correct answer for when volleyball was first introduced.

    • E.

      Any of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. 3
    Explanation
    Each team may hit the ball a maximum of 3 times (excluding the block). This means that each team can hit the ball up to three times before it must be returned to the other side of the net. The correct answer is 3 because it accurately reflects the maximum number of hits allowed per team.

    Correct Answer
    D. First contact is a block
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that a player cannot hit the ball twice consecutively unless their first contact is a block. This means that if a player blocks the ball, they are allowed to make a subsequent hit. However, if their first contact is any other type of hit such as a bump or a spike, they are not allowed to hit the ball again until another player has made a contact.

    • A.

      Server steps onto the court when serving

    • D.

      Ball touches the net on it’s way over

    • E.

      Ball lands outside of the court boundaries

    Correct Answer
    D. Ball touches the net on it’s way over
    Explanation
    In volleyball, when the ball touches the net on its way over, it is not considered a fault by the serving team. This is because the ball is still in play as long as it crosses the net and lands within the court boundaries.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

     Points are only scored by the...

    • A.

      Home team

    • B.

      Receiving team

    • C.

      Blue team

    • D.

      Team that wins the rally

    • E.

      Visiting team

    Correct Answer
    D. Team that wins the rally
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "team that wins the rally". This means that the team that successfully completes a rally and earns a point is the one that scores. The other options, such as the home team, receiving team, blue team, and visiting team, are not necessarily the ones that score points. The scoring depends solely on the team that wins the rally, regardless of their affiliation or position in the game.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When the serving team errors a/an            is called.   

    • A.

      End around

    • B.

      Side out

    • C.

      Fault

    • D.

      Violation

    • E.

      Penalty shot

    Correct Answer
    B. Side out
    Explanation
    When the serving team makes an error in a game, it is called a "side out." This means that the opposing team will gain the right to serve and have a chance to score points. This term is commonly used in sports such as volleyball or racquetball, where teams take turns serving the ball.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Before serving the opponents must rotate one position...

    • A.

      To the left

    • B.

      Clock wise

    • C.

      Upside down

    • D.

      To the right

    • E.

      Anti-clock wise

    Correct Answer
    B. Clock wise
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "clock wise" because rotating one position to the left would mean moving in a counter-clockwise direction, while rotating upside down is not a valid rotation in this context. Similarly, rotating to the right and anti-clockwise would also be incorrect. Therefore, the correct direction to rotate is in a clockwise manner.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which of the following is not considered a held ball?   

    • A.

      Scooping

    • B.

      Lifting

    • C.

      Carrying

    • D.

      Punching

    • E.

      Catching

    Correct Answer
    D. Punching
    Explanation
    Punching is not considered a held ball because it involves striking the ball with a closed fist, rather than holding or controlling it. In sports such as basketball, a held ball occurs when a player gains possession of the ball and maintains control of it without dribbling or shooting. Scooping, lifting, carrying, and catching all involve holding and controlling the ball, while punching does not.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    A ball hit into the net by a team may be kept in play provided...

    • A.

      It bounces straight back

    • B.

      The ball is not touched by a player

    • C.

      It bounces upward

    • D.

      The ball is made of leather

    • E.

      The net is not touched by a player

    Correct Answer
    E. The net is not touched by a player
    Explanation
    If a ball hit into the net by a team is kept in play, it means that the net is not touched by a player. This means that if a player hits the ball into the net, but no player from their own team touches the net while attempting to keep the ball in play, the ball can still be considered in play. The other options provided, such as the ball bouncing straight back, the ball not being touched by a player, or the ball being made of leather, do not directly affect whether the ball hit into the net is kept in play.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Passing of hands over the net after a spike is permitted

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In volleyball, passing of hands over the net after a spike is indeed permitted. This means that a player can touch the ball with their hands on the opponent's side of the net as long as it is during or after a spike. This rule allows for players to follow through with their momentum after an attack and potentially block or defend against the opponent's counterattack.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A player may play the ball even if it is outside the court

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A player may play the ball even if it is outside the court. This is true because according to the rules of the game, a player is allowed to reach outside the boundaries of the court to play the ball as long as they do not touch the ground outside the court. This allows for more dynamic and exciting gameplay as players can make impressive saves or returns even if the ball is heading out of bounds.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The boundary lines are considered "out"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. The boundary lines are not considered "out." In most cases, the boundary lines are considered as part of the field or area in question. This means that if an object or player touches or crosses the boundary line, it is still considered in play or in bounds.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Players may touch the net sometimes

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In certain situations, players may inadvertently touch the net while playing a game. This can happen when players are reaching out to make a play or when they accidentally collide with the net during the game. While it is generally not allowed to touch the net intentionally, unintentional contact with the net is sometimes unavoidable. Therefore, the statement that players may touch the net sometimes is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Stepping on the center line is a fault

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Stepping on the center line is not a fault.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Touching the ball with anything other than your hands is a fault

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Touching the ball with anything other than your hands is not necessarily a fault in all situations. In sports like soccer or volleyball, players often use other parts of their body, such as their feet or head, to touch the ball. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

     A served ball may be deflected over the net by a teammate

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    According to the statement, a served ball may be deflected over the net by a teammate. However, this statement is false. In volleyball, the player who serves the ball cannot touch it again until it is returned by the opposing team. Therefore, a served ball cannot be deflected over the net by a teammate.
