### An earthern stacked turf face of a bunker is part of the bunker.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because an earthen stacked turf face of a bunker is not part of the bunker. The bunker refers to the area of the course that is specially prepared and filled with sand or similar material. The earthen stacked turf face, on the other hand, refers to the artificial slope or wall that is created to define the edge of the bunker. While it is closely associated with the bunker and serves a purpose in the game, it is not considered a part of the bunker itself.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When out of bounds is defined by a line on the ground, a ball is considered out of bounds only if all of it lies on the line. This means that even if a small part of the ball touches the line, it is still considered in bounds. Therefore, the statement is true.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
A player may not repair an old hole plug regardless of whether his ball lies on the putting green or not. This is because according to the rules of golf, a player is only allowed to repair damage to the putting green, such as ball marks or old hole plugs, if his ball lies on the putting green. Therefore, the statement that a player may repair an old hole plug if his ball lies on the putting green is false.
