### True or False? To measure the depth of the sea, we typically use kilometers.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
To measure the depth of the sea, kilometers are not typically used. The standard unit for measuring the depth of the sea is meters (or sometimes even kilometers for very deep areas). Kilometers are more commonly used to measure distances on land or between locations.

Explanation
The basic unit of weight is grams. Grams are a metric unit of measurement commonly used to measure the weight of small objects. It is the smallest unit of weight in the metric system and is often used in scientific and everyday measurements. Kilograms and pounds are larger units of weight, while "None of the above" is not correct as grams is indeed the basic unit of weight.

### True or False: The metric volume of a liquid is measured in Liters.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The metric volume of a liquid is measured in liters. This is because the liter is the standard unit of measurement for volume in the metric system. It is commonly used to measure the volume of liquids, such as water, milk, or juice. One liter is equal to 1000 milliliters, and it is a larger unit compared to milliliters or cubic centimeters. Therefore, it is correct to say that the metric volume of a liquid is measured in liters.

### It would make sense to measure your desk using :

• A.

Kilometers

• B.

Millimeters

• C.

Centimeters

• D.

Meters

C. Centimeters
Explanation
Measuring a desk using centimeters would make sense because centimeters are a more appropriate unit of measurement for smaller objects like desks. Kilometers would be too large of a unit, millimeters would be too small and not practical, and meters could be used but centimeters provide a more precise measurement for a desk.

• A.

10

• B.

6

• C.

2

• D.
