This quiz tests your knowledge on simple map symbols that I have given you in the scene before!

• 1.

### What symbol is a side view of a tent and has a box around it?

• A.

A tent

• B.

A campground

• C.

A mountain

• D.

A city

B. A campground
Explanation
A campground is the correct answer because it is a symbol that represents a side view of a tent with a box around it. Campgrounds are outdoor areas where people can set up tents and camp overnight, so it makes sense for the symbol to be associated with a tent. Additionally, the box around the symbol may represent the boundaries or designated area of the campground.

### What symbol has solid lines usually curved, and is always found on a topographic map?

• A.

Boundary Lines

• B.

City Lines

• C.

Mountain Lines

• D.

Contour Lines

D. Contour Lines
Explanation
Contour lines are the correct answer because they are the symbol on a topographic map that is represented by solid lines, usually curved. Contour lines are used to show the elevation and shape of the land, connecting points of equal elevation. They help to visualize the topography and understand the terrain features such as mountains, valleys, and slopes.

### What symbol is always a blue line found on a map?

• A.

Streams

• B.

Rivers

• C.

Waterfalls

• D.

Skyscrapers

B. Rivers
Explanation
A blue line on a map typically represents a body of water, such as a river. Rivers are natural waterways that flow from higher elevations to lower elevations, often connecting to larger bodies of water like lakes or oceans. They are an important feature on maps as they provide information about the geography and topography of an area. Therefore, the symbol of a blue line on a map is commonly associated with rivers.

### Which symbol has three solid black boxes (one small, medium, and large)?

• A.

Buildings

Skyscrapers

• C.

Cities

• D.

Boxes-R-Us

A. Buildings
Explanation
The question is asking for a symbol that has three solid black boxes of different sizes. None of the other options (Skyscrapers, Cities, Boxes-R-Us) mention anything about black boxes or symbols. However, Buildings can be represented by a symbol that consists of three solid black boxes, one small, one medium, and one large.

• A.

City lines

• B.

Boundary lines

• C.

State Lines

Country/National Lines

• E.

None of the Above

D. Country/National Lines
Explanation
The thickest boundary line seen on a map is the country/national lines. These lines represent the borders between different countries and are typically depicted as bold and prominent lines on a map. City lines, boundary lines, and state lines are usually depicted with thinner lines, while country/national lines are given more emphasis due to their significance in demarcating different nations.
