Animal Psychology - Qp8 - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    In the neonatal period kittens learn to respond to different sounds,

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the neonatal period, kittens go through a critical period of development where they learn to respond to different sounds. This is an important part of their socialization process, as it helps them become familiar with their environment and learn to communicate with other cats and humans. By being exposed to various sounds during this time, kittens develop the ability to distinguish between different sounds and respond accordingly. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately reflects this aspect of kitten development.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The socialisation period usually occurs around _______

    • A.

      Two and five weeks

    • B.

      Two and six weeks

    • C.

      Two and seven weeks

    • D.

      Two and eight weeks

    Correct Answer
    C. Two and seven weeks
    Explanation
    During the socialization period, puppies go through a crucial developmental stage where they learn to interact with other dogs and humans. This period is important for their social and emotional development. The answer "two and seven weeks" is correct because this is the typical timeframe when puppies are most receptive to socialization. It is during this time that they are more open to new experiences, learning social skills, and forming positive associations with people and other animals.

  • 3. 

    Cats tend to eat slowly as they do not have to compete for their food.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Cats tend to eat slowly because they do not have to compete for their food. Unlike in the wild, where competition for food is common, domestic cats are typically the sole providers of their own meals. As a result, they can take their time and savor their food without the need to rush or eat quickly to ensure they get enough. This behavior is more commonly observed in cats compared to other animals that may need to eat quickly to secure their share of a limited food supply.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Cats seem to interact with people in a different way to the way they interact with other cats.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Cats do not necessarily interact with people in a different way than they interact with other cats. While cats may display different behaviors towards humans compared to other cats, such as seeking affection or displaying territorial behavior, they also exhibit similar behaviors towards other cats, such as grooming, playing, or establishing dominance. Therefore, the statement is false as cats can interact with both humans and other cats in various ways.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      8 years

    • B.

      16 years

    • C.

      24 years

    Correct Answer
    B. 16 years
    Explanation
    Cats age differently than humans, and their first year of life is equivalent to about 15 human years. Therefore, a 1-year-old cat is roughly equal to 15 years in human age.

    Cats will suffer from a steady loss of brain cells during its life.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Cats, like all mammals, experience a natural loss of brain cells as they age. This process, known as neurodegeneration, is a normal part of the aging process and can result in a gradual decline in cognitive function. Therefore, it is true that cats will suffer from a steady loss of brain cells during their life.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement contradicts common sense and scientific evidence. Studies have shown that kittens with calm and friendly owners experience less stress and anxiety. A calm and friendly owner provides a nurturing and secure environment for the kittens, promoting their overall well-being and reducing their stress levels.

    Between seven to fourteen weeks, the kittens they will spend a lot of time playing with objects and other animals.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the period between seven to fourteen weeks, kittens go through a developmental stage known as the socialization period. This is a crucial time for them to learn and develop social skills. They engage in play behavior, which includes playing with objects and interacting with other animals. This playtime helps them learn important social cues, develop coordination and agility, and build relationships with their littermates and other animals. Therefore, the statement that kittens spend a lot of time playing with objects and other animals during this period is true.

    Mice are generally killed by smothering, while things like baby birds and insects will be killed by using the cat’s paws.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it suggests that mice are killed by smothering and baby birds and insects are killed using the cat's paws. However, this is not accurate as cats typically kill mice, baby birds, and insects by biting and clawing them, not by smothering or using their paws alone.

  • 10. 

    Lap trampling is sometimes described as ‘making bread’.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Lap trampling is sometimes referred to as "making bread" because it involves a cat or a small animal kneading or massaging a person's lap with their paws. This behavior is often seen in cats and is believed to be a sign of contentment and relaxation. The rhythmic motion resembles the kneading of dough when making bread, hence the comparison.
