    The atom is the basic building block of matter. 

    • A.


    • B.


    Correct Answer
    A. True
    The statement "The atom is the basic building block of matter" is true because atoms are the smallest units of matter that retain the chemical properties of an element. Atoms combine to form molecules and compounds, which in turn make up all the substances in the universe. Therefore, understanding the structure and behavior of atoms is crucial in understanding the properties and behavior of matter.
