Trivia Quiz: What Do You Know About Renewable And Non-renewable Energy? - Quiz

What Do You Know About Renewable And Non-renewable Energy? Renewable energy is the type of energy that can never run out while nonrenewable runs out and cannot be replaced. Do you know which the sources of these types of energy are and their effects on the environment? Do take up this quiz and see if you use the more environmentally friendly ones.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What are three non-renewable sources of energy?

    • A.

      Oil, natural gas, coal

    • B.

      Coal, oil, carbon

    • C.

      Water, natural gas, carbon

    • D.

      Algae, corn, coal

    Correct Answer
    A. Oil, natural gas, coal
    Explanation
    Oil, natural gas, and coal are all examples of non-renewable sources of energy. Non-renewable sources are those that cannot be easily replenished or take millions of years to form. Oil, natural gas, and coal are all fossil fuels, formed from the remains of ancient plants and animals that were buried and subjected to heat and pressure over millions of years. These sources of energy are finite and will eventually run out, making it important to explore and develop alternative, renewable sources of energy.

  • 2. 

    Why is it important for us to use renewable energy?

    • A.

      Renewable energy doesn't add carbon dioxide to our atmosphere

    • B.

      Renewable energy helps keep the world a healthy place

    • C.

      Sources of renewable energy like the sun and wind will never run out

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    It is important for us to use renewable energy because it does not add carbon dioxide to our atmosphere, helps keep the world a healthy place, and sources like the sun and wind will never run out.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which statement below is false?

    • A.

      Solar and wind power are intermittent (the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow all day)

    • B.

      Some sources of renewable energy like wind and hydroelectric can harm animal habitats

    • C.

      All forms of renewable energy are very expensive

    • D.

      Our electrical grid, which moves electricity around, is old and inefficient

    Correct Answer
    C. All forms of renewable energy are very expensive
    Explanation
    The statement that is false is "All forms of renewable energy are very expensive." This is not true because the cost of renewable energy has been decreasing over the years, making it more affordable and competitive with traditional forms of energy. Additionally, certain forms of renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, have already reached grid parity in many regions, meaning they are cost-competitive with fossil fuels. The development of new technologies and government incentives have also contributed to the affordability of renewable energy.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which item below is not an example of "distributed generation?"

    • A.

      A coal-powered power plant located far away

    • B.

      Solar panels on your roof

    • C.

      Wind turbine on a family farm

    • D.

      Any small energy producer located close to where the energy will be used

    Correct Answer
    A. A coal-powered power plant located far away
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a coal-powered power plant located far away. This is because distributed generation refers to small-scale power generation that is located close to where the energy will be used. A coal-powered power plant located far away does not fit this definition as it is a centralized form of power generation.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What is the cleanest source of energy?

    • A.

      Wind

    • B.

      Solar

    • C.

      Geothermal

    • D.

      The energy we never use by saving energy through energy efficiency and conservation

    Correct Answer
    D. The energy we never use by saving energy through energy efficiency and conservation
    Explanation
    The answer "The energy we never use by saving energy through energy efficiency and conservation" is considered the cleanest source of energy because it does not involve the production or consumption of any energy, thus having zero environmental impact. By reducing energy waste and adopting energy-efficient practices, we can minimize our reliance on traditional energy sources and decrease pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. This approach promotes sustainability and helps in preserving the environment for future generations.
