      Four hollow teeth

    • B.

      Two hollow teeth

    • C.

      Four solid teeth

    • D.

      Two solid teeth

    Correct Answer
    B. Two hollow teeth
    Explanation
    A poisonous snake has two hollow teeth. These hollow teeth are called fangs and are located in the front of the snake's mouth. The hollow structure allows venom to flow through the teeth and into the prey when the snake bites. This venom is used by the snake to immobilize or kill its prey, making it easier for the snake to consume it. The presence of two hollow teeth distinguishes poisonous snakes from non-poisonous ones, as non-poisonous snakes do not possess these specialized fangs.
