Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The difference between science and pseudoscience is:-

    • A.

      Using the Scientific method

    • B.

      Credibility

    • C.

      Education

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Using the Scientific method
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "using the Scientific method" because the main difference between science and pseudoscience lies in the approach they take to investigate and understand the world. Science relies on the scientific method, which involves making observations, formulating hypotheses, conducting experiments, and analyzing data to draw conclusions. Pseudoscience, on the other hand, lacks this rigorous and systematic approach, often relying on anecdotal evidence, personal beliefs, or unproven claims. The other options, credibility and education, are important factors but do not directly distinguish between science and pseudoscience.

    Science findings are NOT based on...............

    • A.

      Data

    • B.

      Observation

    • C.

      Evidence

    • D.

      Opinions

    Correct Answer
    D. Opinions
    Explanation
    Science findings are not based on opinions because opinions are subjective and can vary from person to person. In science, findings are based on objective data, observation, and evidence that can be tested and verified. Opinions may be influenced by personal beliefs, biases, or emotions, whereas scientific findings are grounded in empirical evidence and follow a systematic and rigorous process of inquiry. Therefore, opinions do not hold the same weight as data, observation, and evidence in scientific research and conclusions.

    Science is a process that seeks............................

    • A.

      Truth

    • B.

      Fiction

    • C.

      As close as we can to understand the realities of the Natural world

    • D.

      To bring about the best in each and every individual so that our community will be happy

    Correct Answer
    C. As close as we can to understand the realities of the Natural world
    Explanation
    Science is a process that aims to understand the realities of the natural world as closely as possible. It involves the systematic observation, experimentation, and analysis of natural phenomena to gain knowledge and explain how things work. By following this process, scientists strive to uncover the truth about the natural world and expand our understanding of it. This helps us make informed decisions, develop new technologies, and improve our lives.

    Science is testing to see if our prediction is

    • A.

      Unsupported

    • B.

      Supported

    • C.

      We don't test predictions

    • D.

      We don't test in Science

    Correct Answer
    B. Supported
    Explanation
    In science, testing is conducted to determine whether our predictions are supported or not. This involves designing experiments or gathering data to gather evidence that either confirms or refutes our initial hypothesis or prediction. By testing our predictions, we can gain a better understanding of the natural world and refine our theories accordingly. Therefore, the correct answer is "Supported".

    A Scientist..........................

    • A.

      Any one who questions the world around them

    • B.

      Some one always wearing a lab-coat

    • C.

      Has crazy stand up hair

    • D.

      Has a college degree with a scientific background

    Correct Answer
    D. Has a college degree with a scientific background
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Has a college degree with a scientific background". This is because having a college degree with a scientific background indicates that the person has received formal education and training in scientific principles and methods. This suggests that they have acquired the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct scientific research and analysis. It does not necessarily mean that they always wear a lab coat or have crazy stand up hair, nor does it imply that anyone who questions the world around them is a scientist.

    Using your senses to learn about something is called

    • A.

      Inference

    • B.

      Conclusion

    • C.

      Observation

    • D.

      Hypothesis

    Correct Answer
    C. Observation
    Explanation
    Observation is the act of using our senses to gather information about something. It involves directly perceiving or noticing something through sight, hearing, touch, taste, or smell. By observing, we can gather data and facts about the object or situation, which can then be used as a basis for further analysis or investigation. In this context, observation is the most appropriate term to describe the act of using our senses to learn about something.

    The Scientific method is ..................

    • A.

      A circular process used to answer questions about the natural world

    • B.

      A simple formula that will answer any question

    • C.

      Experimenting until you get the result you want

    • D.

      A way to predict some ones future

    Correct Answer
    C. Experimenting until you get the result you want
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A circular process used to answer questions about the natural world." The scientific method is a systematic approach that involves making observations, formulating a hypothesis, conducting experiments, analyzing data, and drawing conclusions. It is a continuous and iterative process that aims to understand and explain natural phenomena through empirical evidence and logical reasoning. It is not about getting the desired result, but rather about objectively testing and refining hypotheses to gain a deeper understanding of the natural world.

    Which of the following best represent what Science is

    • A.

      A collection of facts about the world

    • B.

      A creative way of learning based on observation and evidence

    • C.

      A guess about how things work for now and in the future

    • D.

      The answer to every thing in the univers

    Correct Answer
    B. A creative way of learning based on observation and evidence
    Explanation
    Science is a creative way of learning based on observation and evidence. It involves using curiosity and imagination to explore and understand the natural world. Through careful observation and experimentation, scientists gather evidence to support or refute hypotheses. Science is not just a collection of facts, as it is a dynamic and ever-evolving process of discovery. It also does not claim to have the answer to everything in the universe, but rather seeks to continually expand our knowledge and understanding.

    Science is a process that

    • A.

      Can always be relied upon

    • B.

      Is always properly used

    • C.

      Is based on faith or belief

    • D.

      Attempts to disprove ideas

    Correct Answer
    A. Can always be relied upon
    Explanation
    Science is a process that can always be relied upon because it is a systematic and evidence-based approach to understanding the natural world. It relies on observation, experimentation, and the use of logical reasoning to develop and test hypotheses. The scientific method ensures that scientific findings are reliable and reproducible, allowing for the advancement of knowledge and the development of new technologies. Scientists constantly strive to improve their understanding by challenging existing ideas and theories through rigorous experimentation and analysis. Therefore, science can be trusted as a reliable source of knowledge and understanding.

    A Scientific hyphotheses needs to be

    • A.

      The only answer to the question been studied

    • B.

      The conclusion to your experiment

    • C.

      Testable

    • D.

      Wrong in order to learn anything

    Correct Answer
    C. Testable
    Explanation
    A scientific hypothesis needs to be testable in order to be considered valid. This means that it must be possible to design experiments or gather evidence that can either support or refute the hypothesis. Without testability, a hypothesis cannot be scientifically investigated and its validity cannot be determined. Therefore, testability is a crucial criterion for a scientific hypothesis.
