This indicates that they are likely a big player who operates close to the basket. Additionally, the player is described as both an aggressive rebounder on both ends of the court.

      Offense

    • B.

      Defense

    Correct Answer
    C. Defense
    Explanation
    Man-to-man and zone are two examples of defensive strategies in sports, particularly in team sports such as basketball or football. In man-to-man defense, each defender is assigned to guard a specific player on the opposing team. On the other hand, zone defense involves defenders guarding specific areas on the playing field instead of individual players. Both strategies aim to prevent the opposing team from scoring by blocking their offensive plays and disrupting their movements. Therefore, the correct answer is defense.

    Explanation
    In basketball, a foul refers to an action by a player that breaks the rules. It can involve physical contact with an opponent that is deemed illegal or excessive, such as pushing, holding, or tripping. When a foul is committed, the opposing team is awarded free throws or possession of the ball, depending on the severity of the foul and the game situation. Therefore, the correct answer is "Foul."

      Kill

    Correct Answer
    A. Set
    Explanation
    In volleyball, when a player places the ball at the net for another player to spike it, it is called a set. The set is a technique used to accurately position the ball for a teammate to attack and score a point. This allows the spiker to have a better chance of hitting the ball with power and precision. The pass refers to the act of receiving and directing the ball to the setter, while the kill refers to a successful attack that results in a point. However, in this scenario, the correct answer is set because it describes the specific action mentioned in the question.

    A. True
    Explanation
    In volleyball rally scoring, every time the ball is put into play, a point is scored. This means that regardless of which team serves, if the ball is successfully put into play, a point is awarded. This scoring system promotes continuous action and competitiveness throughout the game, as every play has the potential to earn a point. Therefore, the statement is true.

      One time

    Correct Answer
    B. Two times
    Explanation
    In volleyball, a single player can hit the ball two times before it must go over the net. This rule is known as the "three-hit rule" where a team has a maximum of three hits to return the ball to the opponent's side. Each player is allowed to hit the ball a maximum of two times, and the third hit must be made by a different player or it must go over the net. This rule ensures fair play and encourages teamwork as players must coordinate their hits to keep the ball in play.

    During game play, there are typically six players on a volleyball court for one team. This includes three front-row players and three back-row players. The front-row players are responsible for attacking and blocking, while the back-row players focus on passing, setting, and defending. The number six is the correct answer as it represents the standard configuration of players on a volleyball court during a game.

    Explanation
    In Flag Football, a safety is worth two points. This means that if the defensive team tackles the offensive team in their own end zone, they are awarded two points. A safety occurs when the ball carrier is downed in their own end zone or commits a penalty in their own end zone. It is a defensive scoring play and provides an opportunity for the defensive team to earn points while preventing the offense from scoring.

    Explanation
    In Flag Football, a team is allowed to have only one forward pass on a given play.

This rule is in place to encourage strategy and prevent teams from relying solely on passing the ball to advance down the field.

    Explanation
    In Softball/Wiffle Ball, the defensive team must collect three outs before they get to bat.

    In Softball/Wiffle Ball, there is a force out at first base every time. This means that if a defensive player touches the base with the ball before the batter-runner reaches it, the batter-runner is automatically out. This is different from a tag out, where the defensive player must tag the runner with the ball to get them out. The force out at first base is a common play in these sports and is an important defensive strategy for the team in the field.

It implies that the person cannot take as many steps as they want, indicating that there is a specific limit of two steps.

This is because in ultimate frisbee, the offensive team is typically given the advantage in situations of simultaneous catches. This rule is in place to promote a more fast-paced and exciting game, allowing the offense to maintain possession and continue their offensive play.
