    A. Two men came to a rain forest to chop down a tree.

    • D.

      I like trees.

    Correct Answer
    C. All trees are necessary for animals to live.
    Explanation
    The best generalization for a summary of this story is that all trees are necessary for animals to live. This can be inferred from the statement "It is frightening when you nap and animals come and talk to you!" which implies that animals rely on trees for shelter and habitat. The other options, "Don't cut down the tree" and "I like trees," do not capture the main theme of the story, which is the importance of trees for animals' survival.

    Rate this question:

  • 3.

    • A.

      Kept humans out of the forest.

      Were eaten by other animals.

      Made honey for farmers.

    • D.

      Pollinated trees and flowers.

    Correct Answer
    D. Pollinated trees and flowers.
    Explanation
    Bees are important in the rainforest because they pollinate trees and flowers. Pollination is the process by which pollen is transferred from the male part of a flower to the female part, leading to fertilization and the production of seeds. Bees play a crucial role in this process as they collect nectar from flowers and inadvertently transfer pollen from one flower to another. This helps in the reproduction and survival of many plant species in the rainforest ecosystem.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which was an important theme (Message) from the selection?

    • A.

      Kapok trees grow in the rain forest.

    • B.

      All living things depend on one another.

    • C.

      The sloth is a very slow-moving animal.

    • D.

      Trees provide shade from the hot sun.

    Correct Answer
    B. All living things depend on one another.
    Explanation
    The important theme (message) from the selection is that all living things depend on one another. This is evident from the fact that kapok trees grow in the rainforest, and trees provide shade from the hot sun. This suggests that the ecosystem in the rainforest is interconnected, with different living organisms relying on each other for survival.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    According to the story, what was one reason the tree roots were important?

    • A.

      They were home to some birds.

    • B.

      They held the soil in place.

    • C.

      They kept the ground moist.

    • D.

      They age leaves their green color.

    Correct Answer
    B. They held the soil in place.
    Explanation
    The tree roots were important because they held the soil in place. This means that the roots prevented erosion by keeping the soil from being washed away or displaced. Without the roots, the soil would have been vulnerable to being carried away by wind or water, which could have caused damage to the surrounding area and affected the stability of the tree itself.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Kapok trees are only found in the Amazon rain forest.

    Correct Answer
    A. Trees are home for many creatures in the rain forest.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Trees are home for many creatures in the rain forest." This is the only generalization that can be made based on the information provided in the selection. The other options either make specific claims about the rain forest (people cutting down every tree) or make specific claims about certain types of trees (kapok trees only found in the Amazon rain forest) that are not supported by the given information.

  • 7. 

    What is one thing from the story that made it a fantasy?

      A child from the Yanamamo tribe lived in the rain forest.

    • B.

      The animals were able to talk to a sleeping man.

    • C.

      A man tried to chop down the Kapok tree.

    • D.

      The toucan flew down from the canopy.

    Correct Answer
    B. The animals were able to talk to a sleeping man.
    Explanation
    The fact that the animals were able to talk to a sleeping man is a clear indication that the story contains elements of fantasy. In reality, animals cannot communicate with humans in this way. This element adds a magical and imaginative aspect to the story, suggesting that it is not based entirely in reality but rather in a fantastical world.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What was the most likely reason the man wanted to cut down the Kapok tree?

    • A.

      To build fire for warmth in the rain forest.

    • C.

      To sell the wood for money.

    • D.

      To show how strong he was.

    Correct Answer
    C. To sell the wood for money.
    Explanation
    The most likely reason the man wanted to cut down the Kapok tree is to sell the wood for money. This can be inferred from the fact that selling wood is a common practice for making money, and there is no mention of the man needing fire, capturing animals, or wanting to show his strength.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What is one reason that people and animals need trees?

    • A.

      They look pretty.

    • D.

      They give us oxygen.

    Correct Answer
    D. They give us oxygen.
    Explanation
    Trees give us oxygen through a process called photosynthesis. During photosynthesis, trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen, which is essential for the survival of both people and animals. Oxygen is needed by living organisms for respiration, the process by which cells convert oxygen into energy. Therefore, trees play a crucial role in maintaining the balance of oxygen in the atmosphere and providing a breathable environment for all living beings.
