One of the best ways in which you can understand a topic entirely is by tackling some questions on it that help you review what you learned. Below is a water cycle basics test that is designed to help you understand the four stages and how they occur. Give it a try and be sure to take up more tests like it.

• 1.

### What are the four steps of the water cycle?

• A.

Precipitation, collection, condensation, lamentations

• B.

Evaporation, generation, interphase, condensation

• C.

Evaporation, condensation, precipitation, collection

C. Evaporation, condensation, precipitation, collection
Explanation
The correct answer is evaporation, condensation, precipitation, collection. This sequence accurately describes the four main steps of the water cycle. First, water evaporates from bodies of water, turning into water vapor. Then, the water vapor condenses into clouds. Next, the condensed water droplets fall from the clouds as precipitation, which can be in the form of rain, snow, or hail. Finally, the water collects in various bodies of water, such as lakes, rivers, and oceans, and the cycle begins again.

### True or False: sleet is a form of precipitation.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Sleet is a form of precipitation that occurs when snowflakes partially melt as they fall through a layer of warm air, and then refreeze into ice pellets before reaching the ground. This distinguishes sleet from snow, which falls as frozen water particles, and from freezing rain, which falls as liquid raindrops that freeze upon contact with cold surfaces. Therefore, it is correct to say that sleet is a form of precipitation.
