  • 2. 

    Which of these points to the female part of the flower? 

    • A.

      A

    • B.

      B

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation
    Point A is the correct answer because it is commonly known that the female part of a flower is called the pistil. The pistil consists of three main parts: the stigma, the style, and the ovary. The stigma is the part of the pistil that receives the pollen, and it is usually located at the top of the pistil. Therefore, point A, which is pointing to the top of the flower, is pointing to the female part of the flower.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Check ALL of the following that EVERY plant has. 

    • A.

      Cells with cell walls

    • B.

      Cells with chloroplasts

    • C.

      Chlorophyll

    • D.

      Seeds

    • E.

      Flowers

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cells with cell walls
    B. Cells with chloroplasts
    C. Chlorophyll
    Explanation
    Every plant has cells with cell walls, which provide structural support and protection for the plant. Plants also have cells with chloroplasts, which contain chlorophyll and are responsible for photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert sunlight into energy. Chlorophyll is a pigment that gives plants their green color and is essential for photosynthesis. However, not all plants have seeds or flowers. Some plants reproduce through spores or other methods, and not all plants produce flowers.

    What process is Larry the Leaf describing? 

    • A.

      Photosynthesis

    • B.

      Evaporation

    • C.

      Condensation

    • D.

      Transpiration

    Correct Answer
    A. Photosynthesis
    Explanation
    Larry the Leaf is describing the process of photosynthesis. This is evident from the fact that Larry is a leaf and photosynthesis is the process by which plants, including leaves, convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into glucose and oxygen. Evaporation, condensation, and transpiration are not related to the process described by Larry.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Plants that have flowers are called. 

    • A.

      Angiosperms

    • B.

      Gymnosperms

    • C.

      Pretty

    • D.

      Non-vascular plants

    Correct Answer
    A. Angiosperms
    Explanation
    Angiosperms are plants that have flowers. Flowers are the reproductive structures of angiosperms and are responsible for producing seeds. Angiosperms are the largest group of plants and include familiar plants such as roses, sunflowers, and daisies. They are characterized by having enclosed seeds within an ovary, which develops into a fruit after fertilization. This distinguishes them from gymnosperms, which have naked seeds, and non-vascular plants, which lack specialized tissues for transporting water and nutrients. "Pretty" is not a scientific term used to describe plants, so it is not the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Mushrooms are flowers. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Mushrooms are not flowers. They are actually a type of fungi. While both mushrooms and flowers are part of the plant kingdom, they belong to different groups. Flowers are reproductive structures of flowering plants, while mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of fungi.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Plants and animals have a mutually beneficial relationship.  Which of the following best describes this relationship.  

    • A.

      Plants produce oxygen and sugar for animals. Animals produce carbon dioxide for plants.

    • B.

      There is not a mutually beneficial relationship between plants and animals.

    • C.

      Plants produce carbon dioxide for animals and animals produce oxygen for plants.

    • D.

      Plants produce food for animals. Animals provide nutrients for plants.

    Correct Answer
    A. Plants produce oxygen and sugar for animals. Animals produce carbon dioxide for plants.
    Explanation
    Plants and animals have a mutually beneficial relationship because plants produce oxygen and sugar, which are essential for animals' survival. In return, animals produce carbon dioxide, which is necessary for plants' photosynthesis process. This exchange of gases ensures the continuous cycle of life and energy transfer between plants and animals.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What are the two main things that plants produce through photosynthesis. 

    • A.

      Oxygen

    • B.

      Glucose

    • C.

      Water

    • D.

      Carbon dioxide

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Oxygen
    B. Glucose
    Explanation
    Plants produce oxygen and glucose through photosynthesis. Oxygen is a byproduct of the process and is released into the atmosphere, while glucose is the main product and serves as a source of energy for the plant.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What type of plant is this? 

    • A.

      Gymnosperm

    • B.

      Angiosperm

    • C.

      Non-vascular plant

    • D.

      Fern

    Correct Answer
    A. Gymnosperm
    Explanation
    This plant is classified as a gymnosperm because gymnosperms are plants that produce seeds that are not enclosed in a fruit. They typically have cones or other structures that contain the seeds. This plant does not fall under the category of angiosperm, which are flowering plants that produce seeds enclosed in a fruit. It is also not a non-vascular plant or a fern, as these are different types of plants with distinct characteristics.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The stigma, style, ovary, and ovules together make up the pistil, which is the male part of a flower. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. The pistil is actually the female part of a flower, not the male part. The pistil consists of three main parts: the stigma, style, and ovary. The stigma is the top part of the pistil that receives pollen, the style is the long tube that connects the stigma to the ovary, and the ovary contains the ovules which develop into seeds after fertilization.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The stamen is the male part of a flower.  What are the two main parts of a stamen? 

    • A.

      Filament

    • B.

      Anther

    • C.

      Sepal

    • D.

      Pistil

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Filament
    B. Anther
    Explanation
    The stamen is the male reproductive organ of a flower. It consists of two main parts: the filament and the anther. The filament is a long, slender stalk that supports the anther. The anther is the part of the stamen that produces and releases pollen. Together, the filament and anther play a crucial role in the process of pollination and fertilization in plants.

    Click on the two plants below that are NON-vascular. 

    • A.

      Mosses

    • B.

      Algae

    • C.

      Ferns

    • D.

      Palm trees

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Mosses
    B. Algae
    Explanation
    Mosses and algae are both examples of non-vascular plants. Non-vascular plants do not have specialized tissues for transporting water and nutrients throughout the plant. They rely on direct absorption of water and nutrients from their surroundings. Ferns and palm trees, on the other hand, are vascular plants that have specialized tissues for conducting water and nutrients. Therefore, mosses and algae are the correct answers for non-vascular plants in this question.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What are tubes that transport water and nutrients in vascular plants called? 

    • A.

      Xylem and phloem

    • B.

      Peanut butter and jelly

    • C.

      Tom and Jerry

    • D.

      Sepals and petals

    Correct Answer
    A. Xylem and phloem
    Explanation
    Xylem and phloem are the correct answer because they are the specialized tissues in vascular plants that transport water and nutrients. Xylem transports water and minerals from the roots to the rest of the plant, while phloem transports sugars and other organic compounds from the leaves to the other parts of the plant. These two tissues work together to ensure the efficient distribution of essential substances throughout the plant.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A fern is a vascular plant that does not reproduce with seeds.  How do ferns reproduce? 

    • A.

      Spores

    • B.

      Apples

    • C.

      Pine cones

    • D.

      Pickles

    Correct Answer
    A. Spores
    Explanation
    Ferns reproduce through spores. Spores are tiny reproductive structures that can be released from the fern and carried by wind or water to new locations. Once the spore lands in a suitable environment, it can germinate and grow into a new fern plant. This method of reproduction is different from plants that reproduce with seeds, like apples or pine cones.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Algae and mosses are different from vascular plants because the don't have xylem and phloem. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Algae and mosses are different from vascular plants because they lack xylem and phloem. Xylem and phloem are specialized tissues that transport water, nutrients, and sugars throughout the plant. Vascular plants have these tissues, allowing them to grow larger and more complex, while algae and mosses rely on other methods for nutrient and water absorption. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Plants CAN live underwater. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Plants can live underwater because they have adaptations that allow them to survive in aquatic environments. They have specialized structures like air-filled spaces or pores in their leaves that help them obtain oxygen from the water. Additionally, they have the ability to carry out photosynthesis even in low light conditions. Some examples of plants that can live underwater are water lilies, water hyacinths, and certain types of algae. Therefore, the statement "Plants CAN live underwater" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Ferns, angiosperms, and gymnosperms are all vascular plants.  They have xylem and phloem. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Ferns, angiosperms, and gymnosperms are all types of vascular plants, meaning they have specialized tissues called xylem and phloem. Xylem transports water and nutrients from the roots to the rest of the plant, while phloem carries sugars and other organic compounds from the leaves to other parts of the plant. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    What is the function of the petals on a flower? 

    • A.

      To attract pollinators

    • B.

      To look pretty for humans

    • C.

      To provide a hiding place for bees

    • D.

      They are food for baby plants

    Correct Answer
    A. To attract pollinators
    Explanation
    The function of the petals on a flower is to attract pollinators. Petals are often brightly colored and have patterns that are visually appealing to insects and birds. These pollinators are attracted to the flowers and visit them to feed on nectar or collect pollen. As they move from flower to flower, they inadvertently transfer pollen, aiding in the process of pollination and facilitating the reproduction of the plants.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Where did the pollen on this bee's legs come from? 

    • A.

      The anthers of a flower

    • B.

      The ovule of a flower

    • C.

      The sepal of a flower

    • D.

      The pistil of a flower

    Correct Answer
    A. The anthers of a flower
    Explanation
    The pollen on the bee's legs most likely came from the anthers of a flower. Bees collect pollen from flowers to feed their larvae and also for their own nutrition. When bees land on a flower, the pollen sticks to their body, particularly their legs, due to the sticky texture of the pollen. As the bee moves from flower to flower, some of the pollen is transferred to the stigma of other flowers, facilitating pollination. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that the pollen on the bee's legs originated from the anthers of a flower.
