Island Of The Blue Dolphins Quizzes & Trivia

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When Karana made it back to her house she

    • A.

      Had a difficult time crawling under the fence

    • B.

      She did not have enough food to eat

    • C.

      She had plenty of herbs to treat the wound

    • D.

      Both A & B

    Correct Answer
    A. Had a difficult time crawling under the fence
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Both A & B". This is because the question states that when Karana made it back to her house, she had a difficult time crawling under the fence. This implies that she faced a challenge while trying to enter her house. Additionally, the question does not mention anything about her food supply, so it cannot be determined whether she had enough food to eat or not.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    It was a lack of _________________________ that caused Karana to leave her home.

    • A.

      Food

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Medicine

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Water
    Explanation
    Karana left her home due to a lack of water. This suggests that the scarcity of water was the main reason for her departure. Without access to this essential resource, Karana likely had no choice but to leave in search of a place where she could find water to survive.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Another source to quinch Karana's thirst  is

    • A.

      Coconuts

    • B.

      Ocean

    • C.

      Cactus

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Cactus
    Explanation
    Cactus is another source to quench Karana's thirst. This is because cacti are well-adapted to arid environments and have the ability to store water in their stems and leaves. They have specialized structures called spines that help reduce water loss through evaporation. Therefore, cacti can provide water to Karana in a desert or dry environment where other sources like coconuts and the ocean may not be available.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    When Karana saw the big wild dog she

    • A.

      Listened

    • B.

      Shot her bow and arrow at him

      Crawled on swiftly without looking back

    • D.

    • E.

      Both A & B

    • F.

      Both A & C

    • G.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    F. Both A & C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Both A & C". The question states that when Karana saw the big wild dog, she listened and crawled on swiftly without looking back. Option A states that she shot her bow and arrow at him, which is not mentioned in the question. Option B states that she left her bow and arrow behind, which is also not mentioned. Option C states that she listened, which is mentioned in the question. Therefore, options A and C are correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Karana found safe shelter

    • A.

      In a cave

    • B.

      On the ledge of black rock

    • C.

      Back in her home

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. In a cave
    Explanation
    The given answer "in a cave" is correct because it states that Karana found safe shelter. This implies that she sought refuge in a place that provided protection and security. The other options, such as "on the ledge of black rock" or "back in her home," do not necessarily indicate a safe shelter or refuge. Therefore, "in a cave" is the most appropriate choice based on the information provided.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Karana stayed in the cave

    • A.

      One night

    • B.

      Three nights

    • C.

      6 days

    • D.

      One week

    Correct Answer
    C. 6 days
    Explanation
    Karana stayed in the cave for 6 days. This is the correct answer because it is the only option that is a specific duration of time. The other options ("one night," "three nights," and "one week") are not as precise and do not accurately represent the length of time Karana stayed in the cave.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Why did Karana set up another home?

    • A.

      She wanted a vacation home

    • B.

      She needed a place near fresh water where she could stay when hurt or sick.

    • C.

      Her other home was attached by the wild dogs

    • D.

      She did not need another home

    Correct Answer
    B. She needed a place near fresh water where she could stay when hurt or sick.
    Explanation
    Karana set up another home because she needed a place near fresh water where she could stay when hurt or sick. This suggests that she wanted a safe and convenient location to take care of herself during times of illness or injury. It implies that her current home lacked access to fresh water or was not suitable for her needs in such situations.

    • F.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    Karana put herbs for medicine in her new home to ensure she had access to natural remedies. She also collected shellfish and seeds, which could be used as a source of food. Additionally, she kept a bow and arrows for hunting and self-defense purposes. Lastly, she had a bed to provide herself with a comfortable place to sleep. Therefore, all of the options listed above are correct.

    Correct Answer
    D. Some fo the teeth from the sea elephant
    Explanation
    When Karana returned to the place where the sea elephants had fought, she found some of the teeth from the sea elephant. This suggests that the fight between the sea elephants was intense and resulted in the loss of teeth for one of them. It also indicates that Karana was able to locate and collect these teeth, possibly for some purpose or as a memento of the encounter.

  • 10.

      Woven baskets from reeds

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Basins cut in the stone
    Explanation
    Karana stored water in the cave using basins cut in the stone. This is evident from the fact that she had cut basins in the stone to collect and store water. The other options, jugs made of sea kelp and woven baskets from reeds, are not mentioned in the question and therefore cannot be considered as the correct answer.
