### Bending the covers of a book until they touch each other loosens the pages.

• A.

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When the covers of a book are bent until they touch each other, it puts pressure on the spine of the book. This pressure can cause the binding to weaken and the pages to become loose. As a result, the pages may start to fall out or become easier to tear. Therefore, bending the covers of a book until they touch each other can indeed loosen the pages.

This system assigns a unique number to each topic, allowing books on similar subjects to be grouped together.

The Reference section is where books such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, and atlases are located, and they are usually organized differently, often by topic or format.

• C.

D. 796.04 GAI
Explanation
The Dewey Decimal System is a classification system used in libraries to organize books by subject. Each book is assigned a unique number based on its topic. In this case, the numbers given are all in the 796 range, which is the section for sports and recreation. The numbers after the decimal point further narrow down the subject. Since the question asks for the number that would be first on the library shelf, we need to look at the numbers before the decimal point. The number 796.04 comes before 796.07 and 796.2, so it would be the first on the shelf. The author's last name, GAI, is not relevant to the question.

• A.

In series order

• B.

by first name

• C.

By title

• D.

C. By title
Explanation
The correct answer is by title. When putting books on the library shelf, it is most common to arrange them in alphabetical order by the title of the book. This allows readers to easily locate a specific book by looking for its title. Arranging the books in series order or by the author's first name may not be as effective in helping readers find the book they are looking for. As long as all the books are placed together, the specific order of the books may not matter as much.
