    • B.

      Test tubes

    • C.

      Funnel

    Correct Answer
    A. Flask
    Explanation
    A flask is a container that is specifically designed to hold and measure liquids. It is commonly used in laboratories for various experiments and chemical reactions. The shape of a flask allows for easy pouring and mixing of liquids, and it usually has a narrow neck to prevent spills or splashes. The correct answer is flask because it is the most suitable object for holding and measuring liquids.

     What is this a picture of? They are used to hold, mix and heat liquids/chemincals.

    • A.

      Flask

    • B.

      Test tubes

    • C.

      Hot plate

    Correct Answer
    B. Test tubes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Test tubes" because test tubes are commonly used in laboratories to hold, mix, and heat liquids or chemicals. They are narrow, cylindrical glass tubes with a rounded bottom, designed to withstand high temperatures and facilitate easy mixing and observation of reactions. Flask and hot plate are incorrect options as flasks are used for holding and storing liquids, while a hot plate is a heating device commonly used in laboratories.

    B. Beaker
    Explanation
    A beaker is a cylindrical container used in laboratories to hold and measure liquid volumes. It typically has a flat bottom, a spout for pouring, and graduated markings on the side to indicate the volume of liquid inside. In contrast, a dropper is a small tube used to transfer small amounts of liquid, and goggles are protective eyewear used to shield the eyes from chemical splashes or flying debris. Based on the description, the object in question is most likely a beaker.

    When you spill something, immediately clean it up.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that when you spill something, you should immediately clean it up. However, this is not always true. The appropriate response to a spill depends on the type and quantity of the spilled substance, as well as the surface it has been spilled on. For example, if you spill a small amount of water on a tiled floor, it may not be necessary to clean it up immediately. In some cases, it may be more appropriate to assess the situation and determine the best course of action before cleaning up the spill.
