Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Temperature, light, air, water, soil, and climate are all __________ parts of the environment.

    • A.

      Biotic

    • B.

      Boreal

    • C.

      Abiotic

    • D.

      Living

    Correct Answer
    C. Abiotic
    Explanation
    Temperature, light, air, water, soil, and climate are all abiotic parts of the environment. These factors are considered abiotic because they are non-living components that influence the ecosystem. Biotic factors, on the other hand, refer to the living organisms in an environment. The given options of "Boreal" and "Living" are not appropriate in this context as they do not accurately describe the non-living components of the environment.

  • 2. 

    (Plants, animals, and organisms) in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments (weather, earth, sun, soil, climate, atmosphere). Ecosystems are the foundations of the Biosphere and they determine the health of the entire earth system is an..........

    • A.

      Environment

    • B.

      Ecology

    • C.

      Ecosystem

    • D.

      Food Chain

    Correct Answer
    C. Ecosystem
    Explanation
    Ecosystems are comprised of plants, animals, and organisms that interact with each other and with their non-living environments. They play a crucial role in the Biosphere, which refers to all the living organisms on Earth. Ecosystems are responsible for maintaining the health and balance of the entire earth system. They are interconnected and interdependent, with each component relying on others for survival. Therefore, the correct answer is Ecosystem.

  • 3. 

    Which of the following cannot be recycled?

    • A.

      Nitrogen

    • B.

      Carbon

    • C.

      Water

    • D.

      Energy

    Correct Answer
    B. Carbon
    Explanation
    Carbon cannot be recycled because it is an element and cannot be broken down into simpler substances through natural processes. While other substances like nitrogen, water, and energy can be recycled or reused in various forms, carbon remains in its elemental form and does not undergo any natural recycling process.

  • 4. 

    This refers to the sequence of events in an ecosystem, where one organism eats another and then is eaten by another organism. It starts with the primary source like the sun or hydrothermal vents where producers make food, continues with consumers or animals who eat the food, and ends with the top predator is...

    • A.

      Web Chain

    • B.

      Food Chain

    Correct Answer
    B. Food Chain
    Explanation
    A food chain refers to the sequence of events in an ecosystem where one organism consumes another organism and is then consumed by another organism. It begins with the primary source of energy, such as the sun or hydrothermal vents, where producers produce food through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis. The food chain then continues with consumers or animals that feed on these producers, and it ultimately ends with the top predator, which is the organism at the highest trophic level in the chain.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Pilih Rumus Fotosintessis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "True" because the question is asking to choose the formula for photosynthesis. Since photosynthesis is a process that occurs in plants, the formula for photosynthesis is 6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6 + 6O2, which represents the conversion of carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen using sunlight as the energy source.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The above image represents what type of relationship?

    • A.

      Mutualism

    • B.

      Competition

    • C.

      Predator-prey

    • D.

      Parasitism

    Correct Answer
    D. Parasitism
    Explanation
    The image most likely represents parasitism because in this type of relationship, one organism benefits (the parasite) while the other is harmed (the host). The image may show a parasite attached to a host organism, such as a tick on a dog or a leech on a human. The parasite relies on the host for resources and survival, while the host is negatively affected by the parasite's presence.

  • 7. 

    An energy pyramid is used to show.

    • A.

      The layout of organisms in any order seen fit

    • B.

      The amount of energy at each trophic level

    • C.

      The amount of energy in the universe

    Correct Answer
    B. The amount of energy at each trophic level
    Explanation
    An energy pyramid is a graphical representation that shows the flow of energy in an ecosystem. It illustrates the amount of energy available at each trophic level, with producers at the bottom and consumers at higher levels. As energy is transferred from one level to another, it decreases, resulting in a pyramid shape. This helps to understand the energy dynamics and the distribution of energy within an ecosystem.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The Sun is the Source of energy on earth

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Sun is the primary source of energy on Earth. It emits vast amounts of light and heat energy through nuclear fusion reactions in its core. This energy reaches Earth in the form of sunlight, which is essential for various processes like photosynthesis in plants, providing warmth, and driving weather patterns. Without the Sun's energy, life on Earth would not be possible.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    In an energy pyramid, which way does energy transfer?

    • A.

      From the top of the pyramid to the bottom

    • B.

      From the bottom of the pyramid to the left

    • C.

      From the bottom of the pyramid to the top

    • D.

      None of these

    • E.

      None of these

    • F.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. From the bottom of the pyramid to the top
    Explanation
    In an energy pyramid, energy transfer occurs from the bottom of the pyramid to the top. This is because the energy flow starts with the producers, such as plants, that convert sunlight into chemical energy through photosynthesis. This energy is then transferred to the primary consumers, such as herbivores, that eat the plants. The primary consumers are then consumed by secondary consumers, and so on, resulting in a transfer of energy up the pyramid. This pattern continues until the top predators, which occupy the highest trophic level, receive the least amount of energy.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which level of this food pyramid represents the largest amount of organisms?

    • A.

      Tertiary consumers

    • B.

      Primary consumers

    • C.

      Producers

    • D.

      Secondary consumers

    Correct Answer
    C. Producers
    Explanation
    Producers represent the largest amount of organisms in the food pyramid. Producers, such as plants and algae, are able to convert sunlight into energy through photosynthesis. They form the base of the food pyramid and provide energy and nutrients to all other levels. As a result, there are typically more producers than any other level in the pyramid, making them the largest group of organisms.

  • 11. 

    An animal that only eats the flesh of another animal is called a:

    • A.

      Producer

    • B.

      Herbivore

    • C.

      Carnivore

    Correct Answer
    C. Carnivore
    Explanation
    A carnivore is an animal that only eats the flesh of other animals. They have adapted to have sharp teeth and claws to catch and kill their prey. Unlike herbivores, which eat plants, carnivores rely on a diet of meat for survival. The term "carnivore" comes from the Latin words "caro," meaning flesh, and "vorare," meaning to devour. Examples of carnivores include lions, tigers, and wolves.
