    6.P.1.1 Which is one way sound waves are different from light waves?

    • A.

      Sound waves travel through space but light waves cannot

    • B.

      Sound waves travel at a slower speed than light waves

    • C.

      Sound waves have shorter wavelengths than light waves

    • D.

      Sound waves are a source of energy but light waves are not.

    Correct Answer
    B. Sound waves travel at a slower speed than light waves
    Explanation
    Sound waves and light waves are both forms of waves, but they have different properties. One way in which they are different is their speed. Sound waves travel at a slower speed compared to light waves. This is because sound waves require a medium, such as air or water, to travel through, while light waves can travel through a vacuum. The speed of sound waves also depends on the properties of the medium, whereas the speed of light waves is constant in a vacuum. Therefore, sound waves and light waves have different speeds, with sound waves being slower.

    6.P.1.3 Through which medium does sound travel the fastest?

    • A.

      Air

    • B.

      Steel

    • C.

      Steam

    • D.

      water

    Correct Answer
    B. Steel
    Explanation
    Sound travels fastest through steel because steel is a solid material with tightly packed particles. The particles in solids are closely bonded, allowing sound waves to travel quickly through them. In contrast, sound travels slower through air, steam, and water because these mediums have particles that are further apart and less tightly bonded, causing sound waves to move slower.

    • C.

      The water would get as hot as the stone had been

    • D.

      . The stone would get cooler and the water would get warmer

    Correct Answer
    D. . The stone would get cooler and the water would get warmer
    Explanation
    When a hot stone is placed in a beaker of cold water, heat transfer occurs. The stone, being hotter than the water, will transfer heat to the water. As a result, the stone will lose heat and become cooler, while the water will gain heat and become warmer. Therefore, the stone would get cooler and the water would get warmer after 10 minutes of time elapsed.

    6.P.3.2 When electromagnetic waves strike a metal pipe, what usually  happens?

    • A.

      The pipe gets colder

    • B.

      The pipe absorbs some of the waves.

    • C.

      The pipe reflects all of the waves

    • D.

      The pipe begins to produce light.

    Correct Answer
    B. The pipe absorbs some of the waves.
    Explanation
    When electromagnetic waves strike a metal pipe, the pipe absorbs some of the waves. This is because metal is a good conductor of electricity, and when the waves hit the metal surface, the electrons in the metal start moving, resulting in the absorption of some of the wave energy. This absorption of energy can cause the metal pipe to heat up.

    • C.

      Because the gravitational pull of the earth-moon-sun system as the moon orbits the earth moon orbits the earth because the gravitational pull of the earth-moon-sun system as the moon orbits the earth because the gravitational pull of the earth-moon-sun system as the moon orbits the earth

    • D.

      Because of changing angles of the earth-moon-sun system as the moon orbits the earth the moon orbits the earth

    Correct Answer
    D. Because of changing angles of the earth-moon-sun system as the moon orbits the earth the moon orbits the earth
    Explanation
    The moon phases occur because of the changing angles of the earth-moon-sun system as the moon orbits the earth. As the moon moves around the earth, the angle between the sun, earth, and moon changes, causing different amounts of sunlight to be reflected by the moon. This results in the different phases of the moon that we observe from earth. The gravitational pull of the earth-moon-sun system also plays a role in the moon's orbit, but it is not the main reason for the moon phases.

    6.E.2.2 Where are earthquakes and volcanoes most often located?

    • A.

      Center of crustal planes

    • B.

      Edges of crustal plates

    • C.

      Center of continents

    • D.

      Edges of continents

    Correct Answer
    B. Edges of crustal plates
    Explanation
    Earthquakes and volcanoes are most often located at the edges of crustal plates. This is because the Earth's crust is made up of several large plates that are constantly moving and interacting with each other. At the edges of these plates, there is a lot of tectonic activity, such as subduction zones where one plate is forced beneath another, or transform boundaries where plates slide past each other. These interactions can cause the crust to become unstable, leading to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. In contrast, the center of crustal planes and continents are generally more stable and less prone to tectonic activity.

    6.E.2.3 How does sandy soil form?

    • A.

      By the accumulation of dead and decayed organic matter

    • B.

      By the disintegration and weathering of rocks such as limestone, granite, quartz and shale

    • C.

      By sedimentary deposits after rock is weathered, eroded and transported transported

    • D.

      D. by the suspension of sediment in water column of a body of water

    Correct Answer
    B. By the disintegration and weathering of rocks such as limestone, granite, quartz and shale
    Explanation
    Sandy soil is formed by the disintegration and weathering of rocks such as limestone, granite, quartz, and shale. This process involves the breaking down of these rocks into smaller particles over time, which eventually form sandy soil. The accumulation of dead and decayed organic matter can contribute to the fertility of the soil, but it is not the primary factor in the formation of sandy soil. Similarly, sedimentary deposits after rock weathering, erosion, and transportation can contribute to soil formation, but they do not specifically result in sandy soil.

    • A.

      They make food

    • B.

      They provide heat

    • C.

      They absorb water from the air

    • D.

      They attract birds and insects that spread pollen

    Correct Answer
    D. They attract birds and insects that spread pollen
    Explanation
    The benefit of flowers on some plants is that they attract birds and insects that spread pollen. This is important for the process of pollination, where pollen is transferred from the male reproductive organs of a flower to the female reproductive organs. This allows for fertilization and the production of seeds, which is necessary for the plant's reproduction and survival. Flowers often have bright colors and produce nectar to attract birds and insects, who inadvertently pick up pollen on their bodies and transfer it to other flowers as they feed or move around.

    • C.

      . Flooding occurs too often in a Tundra for large trees to grow.

    • D.

      The soil in a Tundra is too nutrient- poor for large trees to grow.

    Correct Answer
    D. The soil in a Tundra is too nutrient- poor for large trees to grow.
    Explanation
    Large trees have a difficult time living in a Tundra because the soil in a Tundra is nutrient-poor. This means that the soil lacks the necessary nutrients and minerals that are essential for the growth and development of large trees. Without these nutrients, the trees are unable to obtain the necessary resources to thrive and grow to their full potential. As a result, they struggle to survive in the Tundra environment.
