    When we are serving, our front-row players are positioned at the net. This is because the front-row players are typically the strongest blockers and attackers on the team.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    In serve receive, the setter (#1) should position herself right up behind player #2. This allows for a better angle and positioning to receive the ball from the serve.

This positioning strategy helps to maximize the effectiveness of the serve receive and facilitates better coordination among the players.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the figure mentioned shows positions in a game where it is not advisable to start any play. If the team is receiving, there should be a swing to hide the setter, meaning that the setter should not be easily visible to the opposing team. Similarly, if the team is serving, the hitters should be on the net, ready to attack. Therefore, it is true that starting plays from the positions shown in the figure is not recommended.

    Explanation
