    Correct Answer
    A. 4
    Explanation
    In baseball, a batter gets 4 balls at each at bat. When a pitcher throws 4 balls that are not in the strike zone, the batter is awarded a walk and is allowed to advance to first base. This is known as a "four-ball walk" or "base on balls". Therefore, the correct answer is 4.

    Correct Answer
    A. 3
    Explanation
    In baseball, a batter gets three strikes at each at-bat. A strike is called when the batter swings and misses the ball, or when the pitch is in the strike zone and the batter does not swing. If the batter accumulates three strikes before hitting a fair ball, they are considered "struck out" and must return to the dugout. Therefore, the correct answer is 3.

    Correct Answer
    A. 3
    Explanation
    In baseball, each team gets 3 outs in each inning. An out is recorded when a batter fails to successfully reach a base before being tagged out or when a fielder catches a fly ball before it touches the ground. Once a team accumulates 3 outs, their turn to bat ends and the opposing team takes their turn. This cycle continues until the game is completed.
