Margaret is to spin the arrow of this spinner once.
What is the chance that the arrow will stop on an even number?
Correct Answer
C. Unlikely
Explanation
The chance of the arrow stopping on an even number is unlikely because the spinner only has one even number (assuming it is a standard spinner with numbers 1-6). Since there are a total of 6 possible outcomes, the probability of landing on an even number is 1/6, which is relatively low compared to the other options.

Peter is to roll a die numbered from 1 to 6. What is the chance he will get the number 2?
Correct Answer
C. 1 chance in 6
Explanation
The chance of getting a specific number on a fair die is determined by the number of favorable outcomes (getting the number 2) divided by the total number of possible outcomes (the numbers 1 to 6). In this case, there is only one favorable outcome (getting the number 2) out of six possible outcomes (the numbers 1 to 6). Therefore, the chance of getting the number 2 is 1 out of 6, or 1 chance in 6.

Three different types of flower bunches (bouquets) were on sale last month at Bloom Flowershop.
The table below shows the number of two types of bouquets sold.
What is the missing number from the table?
Correct Answer
D. 17
Explanation
The missing number from the table can be determined by looking at the pattern in the given numbers. The first number, 123, is the sum of the second and third numbers, 113 + 27. Therefore, to find the missing number, we need to subtract the second number from the first number. 123 - 113 = 10. Similarly, the third number can be found by subtracting the fourth number from the second number. 27 - 17 = 10. Therefore, the missing number is 10.

This sector graph shows three outdoor games played by a group of children.
If ten students play soccer, how many students play skateboarding?
Correct Answer
C. 15
Explanation
Based on the sector graph, the number of students playing soccer is represented by one sector, and the number of students playing skateboarding is represented by another sector. Since the sector representing soccer has a measure of 10, and the total number of students playing all three games is represented by the entire circle, the sector representing skateboarding must have a measure of 15. Therefore, the correct answer is 15 students playing skateboarding.

This picture graph represents the number of milk bottles sold in Joe's corner-shop over two weeks.
If 42 milk bottles were sold in the first week, how many milk bottles were sold altogether?
Correct Answer

Since the graph represents the number of milk bottles sold over two weeks, we can conclude that the same number of milk bottles were sold in the second week. Therefore, the total number of milk bottles sold altogether is 42 + 42 = 84. However, the answer given is 63, which is incorrect.
