    • C.

      3 beats

    • D.

      4 beats

    Correct Answer
    B. 1 beat
    Explanation
    The given note gets 1 beat because in music notation, the duration of a note is indicated by the shape of the note. In this case, the note is notated as a single notehead without any additional flags or beams, which signifies a quarter note. In most common time signatures, a quarter note receives one beat. Therefore, the correct answer is 1 beat.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Notes do indeed represent sound. In music, notes are symbols used to represent different pitches or tones.
