    B. 53,000 degrees F
    Explanation
    The temperature of the sun is 53,000 degrees F. This is a measure of the sun's surface temperature, which is incredibly hot. The high temperature is due to the intense nuclear reactions happening at the sun's core, which generate immense heat and light. This temperature allows the sun to emit large amounts of energy, which is essential for sustaining life on Earth and for driving various atmospheric and weather phenomena.

    You should hide under ANYTHING you can during a lightning storm

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    During a lightning storm, it is not safe to hide under just anything. This is because lightning can strike objects and travel through them, potentially causing harm to anyone seeking shelter underneath. It is important to seek proper shelter during a lightning storm, such as a fully enclosed building or a hard-topped vehicle, to ensure safety from lightning strikes. Hiding under just anything may not provide adequate protection and could put individuals at risk.

      That conditions are favorable for the development of that weather

    Correct Answer
    D. That conditions are favorable for the development of that weather
    Explanation
    A Severe Thunderstorm WATCH or a Tornado WATCH means that conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms or tornadoes. It indicates that the weather conditions are conducive for the formation of these weather events, but it does not necessarily mean that they are currently occurring. It serves as a warning to be prepared and stay alert for the potential occurrence of severe weather.
