    A _________ raises the given note by a half-step (minor second). 

    Correct Answer
    Sharp, sharp, #
    Explanation
    The given sequence of notes "sharp, sharp, #" indicates the use of accidentals to raise the given note by a half-step. The symbol "#" represents a sharp, which raises the pitch of a note by a half-step. Therefore, the correct answer is "sharp, sharp, #" because it indicates the use of two sharps to raise the given note by a half-step.

    A "flat" (♭) lowers a given note by a half-step (minor second). 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a flat symbol (♭) is used in music notation to indicate that a note should be played or sung a half-step lower than its natural pitch. This means that the pitch of the note is lowered by one semitone or one key on a piano. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    A "natural" (♮) cancels a sharp or a flat. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A "natural" sign in music notation is used to cancel a sharp or a flat. This means that if a note is previously marked with a sharp or a flat, the natural sign will cancel that alteration and the note will be played as its natural pitch. Therefore, the statement "A 'natural' cancels a sharp or a flat" is true.
