    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the male infant may be released because he cannot sit up on schedule. However, the correct answer is False.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Each December, the children celebrate their birthdays, which means they are getting a year older. As they grow older, they also gain new privileges and responsibilities. This implies that the statement "Each December the children get a year older and gain new privileges and responsibilities" is true.

    Citizens are encouraged to be as similar to others as possible.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that citizens are encouraged to conform and be similar to others. This could imply that there is a societal pressure to fit in and not stand out. It may also suggest that individuality is not valued or encouraged in this context. Overall, the statement implies that there is an expectation for citizens to be similar to one another.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Citizens take a pill each day to make them stronger.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that citizens take a pill each day to make them stronger. However, there is no evidence or logical reasoning provided to support this claim. Therefore, it is more reasonable to assume that the statement is false, as there is no basis to believe that taking a pill can make someone stronger.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    New children are identified by a number before they are named.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In many cultures, it is common practice to assign a number or a temporary name to a newborn child before they are given their permanent name. This is done to easily identify and keep track of the child, especially in situations where there may be multiple infants or in cases where the naming process takes time. Therefore, the statement that new children are identified by a number before they are named is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The Receiver-in-Training will maintain his regular schedule and train after dinner each evening.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement contradicts itself by saying that the Receiver-in-Training will maintain his regular schedule and train after dinner each evening. If the Receiver-in-Training is maintaining his regular schedule, it implies that he will train at his usual time, not necessarily after dinner each evening. Therefore, the answer is false.

    Rate this question:

    Jonas’s job is to receive all the world’s memories from the current Receiver.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Explanation
    The statement suggests that Jonas's job is to receive all the world's memories from the current Receiver. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Sledding downhill is the first memory Jonas receives.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the first memory that Jonas receives is about sledding downhill. This implies that Jonas has the ability to receive memories, and the first memory he receives is related to sledding downhill. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    At first, Jonas can only see flashes of blue

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement says that at first, Jonas can only see flashes of blue. However, this statement is false. In the book "The Giver" by Lois Lowry, Jonas is unable to see any color until he starts receiving memories from the Giver. So, initially, he cannot see flashes of blue or any other color.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Jonas enjoys playing a war game with his friends.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that Jonas enjoys playing a war game with his friends, and we are asked to determine if this statement is true or false. The correct answer is false because there is no information provided in the statement to support the claim that Jonas enjoys playing a war game with his friends. It is possible that Jonas does not enjoy playing a war game or he may not even have friends to play with. Therefore, without any supporting evidence, we cannot assume that the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Rosemary requested release to escape the pain of the memories

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that Rosemary requested release in order to escape the pain caused by her memories. This implies that she wanted to be freed from the emotional burden and distress that those memories were causing her. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Jonas takes Gabriel and Lily with him when he flees the community.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Jonas does not take Gabriel and Lily with him when he flees the community. In the book "The Giver" by Lois Lowry, Jonas escapes alone with Gabriel, a baby who is scheduled to be released. Lily remains in the community, unaware of Jonas's plan. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which is NOT a reason that someone may be released?

    • A.

      Reward

    • B.

      Punishment

    • C.

      Infant not thriving

    • D.

      Elderly

    Correct Answer
    B. Punishment
    Explanation
    Punishment is not a reason that someone may be released because it is a consequence or penalty imposed for wrongdoing or breaking the law. Being released typically refers to being set free or allowed to leave a certain place or situation, which is not associated with punishment. Instead, punishment is often imposed as a result of being found guilty or convicted of a crime. Therefore, punishment does not align with the concept of being released.

    A Birthmother

    • A.

      Feeds her children

    • B.

      Has four children and then retires

      Lives with her children

    • D.

      Has three children and then performs manual labour

    Correct Answer
    D. Has three children and then performs manual labour
    Explanation
    The given answer states that a birthmother has three children and then performs manual labor. This suggests that the birthmother initially takes care of her children and then starts working in a physical job. This could be due to financial reasons or personal choice. It implies that the birthmother is actively involved in raising her children before transitioning to manual labor.

      Medication

    • D.

      A  dwelling

    Correct Answer
    B. Car
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "car" because not all citizens of a community are provided with a car. While food, medication, and a dwelling are basic necessities that are typically provided for all citizens, car ownership is not a universal entitlement. It is a personal choice and depends on individual circumstances such as affordability, preference, and need.

In the book "The Giver" by Lois Lowry, the society is governed by a group of elders who make all the important decisions, including the assignments for each Twelve. The elders are responsible for determining the roles and responsibilities that each individual will have in the community. They hold the power to decide the future and fate of the citizens, including the Twelve-year-olds who are assigned their lifelong occupations.

    Explanation

      Weather patterns

    Correct Answer
    C. Different types of food
    Explanation
    When the community went to Sameness, one of the things that was not eliminated was different types of food. In the community, food is carefully regulated and controlled to ensure that everyone receives the same nutrition and there are no variations in taste or preference. However, there are still different types of food available, even though they may be limited in variety and quantity. The elimination of hills, colors, and weather patterns were part of the efforts to create a uniform and controlled environment in the community.

    Explanation
    Gabriel's difficulty in sleeping through the night suggests that he may be experiencing sleep disturbances or insomnia.

    B. A family at Christmas
    Explanation
    The Giver's favorite memory is of a family at Christmas. This memory holds a special place in his heart because it represents love, joy, and togetherness. The image of a family celebrating Christmas symbolizes the warmth and happiness that the Giver longs for in his own life. It serves as a stark contrast to the emotionless and controlled society he lives in, making it a cherished and significant memory for him.

    • A.

      Heard pounding surf

    • B.

      Saw glimpses of other communities

    • D.

      Experienced different types of weather

    Correct Answer
    C. Heard music
    Explanation
    The Giver first heard music instead of seeing colors. This suggests that in the world of the story, individuals do not have the ability to perceive colors visually. Instead, they experience them through other senses, such as hearing. This detail adds to the unique and limited sensory experiences of the characters in the story, highlighting the controlled and restricted nature of their society.

As the Receiver, he is not allowed to have any emotional attachments or relationships, including missing his family.
