Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    An ______________ is any living thing.

    • A.

      Sun

    • B.

      Organism

    • C.

      Producer

    • D.

      Decomposer

    Correct Answer
    B. Organism
    Explanation
    An organism is any living thing. This includes all forms of life, such as plants, animals, and microorganisms. Organisms are characterized by their ability to carry out essential life processes, such as growth, reproduction, and metabolism. They can be found in various habitats, ranging from terrestrial to aquatic environments. Organisms play a crucial role in maintaining the balance of ecosystems and are fundamental to the existence of life on Earth.

  • 2. 

    _____________ help break down dead plants and animals into energy like minerals and rich soil.

    • A.

      Omnivores

    • B.

      Scavengers

    • C.

      Tertiary Consumers

    • D.

      Decomposers

    Correct Answer
    D. Decomposers
    Explanation
    Decomposers help break down dead plants and animals into energy like minerals and rich soil. They play a crucial role in the ecosystem by breaking down organic matter and returning essential nutrients back into the soil. Decomposers include bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms that feed on dead organisms and waste materials. They help to recycle nutrients and maintain the balance of the ecosystem by ensuring that dead matter is efficiently decomposed and recycled back into the environment.

  • 3. 

    A mouse is a producer from the Sun?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "A mouse is a producer from the Sun" is incorrect. A mouse is not a producer, but rather a consumer, as it consumes food for energy. Additionally, a mouse is not related to the Sun in any way. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Producers get their energy from the Sun?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Producers, such as plants and algae, undergo photosynthesis to convert sunlight into energy through the process of photosynthesis. This energy is then utilized by the producers to carry out various biological processes, including growth and reproduction. Therefore, it is true that producers get their energy from the Sun.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Some animals can be a secondary consumer and tertiary consumer?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Some animals can indeed be both secondary consumers and tertiary consumers. In a food chain or food web, secondary consumers are animals that eat primary consumers, while tertiary consumers are animals that eat secondary consumers. This means that certain animals can occupy multiple levels in the food chain, depending on what they eat and what eats them. For example, a carnivorous bird that eats insects (secondary consumers) can also be preyed upon by a larger predator (tertiary consumer). Therefore, it is possible for an animal to be both a secondary consumer and a tertiary consumer.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A food web is the path of energy from one organism to another. A food chain is when the energy overlaps into different communities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that a food web is actually a network of interconnected food chains, rather than just a single path of energy. It represents the complex relationships between different organisms and their feeding interactions in an ecosystem. On the other hand, a food chain is a linear sequence of organisms where each organism is eaten by the next one in the sequence. Therefore, the statement that a food chain is when the energy overlaps into different communities is incorrect.
