    • E.

      Take to Walgreens

    Correct Answer
    C. Pre-wash, developer, stop, fixer, and post-wash followed by photo flo
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "pre-wash, developer, stop, fixer, and post-wash followed by photo flo." This is the correct order of steps in the development process for photographs. The pre-wash helps to remove any residual chemicals on the film or paper. The developer is then used to bring out the image. The stop solution is used to halt the development process. The fixer is used to make the image permanent. Finally, the post-wash and photo flo steps help to remove any remaining chemicals and improve the final appearance of the photograph.

      The number of film development reels.

    • D.

      The ratio of water to developer.

    • E.

      How long the film is left in the developer.

    Correct Answer
    C. The number of film development reels.
    Explanation
    The number of film development reels does not affect the development of the film. The development process is primarily influenced by factors such as stirring or mixing the solution, the temperature of the chemicals, the ratio of water to developer, and the duration of time the film is left in the developer. The number of reels used for development is irrelevant to the actual development process.

    • E.

      The hill

    Correct Answer
    B. Prism
    Explanation
    A prism is a device used to refract light and separate it into its different colors. In the context of the given options, a prism is the only item that is related to light and optics. A viewer is a general term and could refer to any type of device used for viewing. A lens is also related to optics, but it is not the best fit as it does not specifically separate light into colors. A shutter is a device used to control the amount of light entering a camera, but it does not separate light. "The hill" is unrelated to optics and does not fit with the other options. Therefore, the correct answer is prism.

    • E.

      Shutter release

    Correct Answer
    B. Take up spool
    Explanation
    The take up spool is responsible for winding the film as it advances through the camera. It ensures that the film is properly tensioned and securely held in place, preventing any slack or loose ends. This allows for smooth and consistent film movement, ensuring that each frame is properly exposed and positioned. Without a functioning take up spool, the film would not advance properly and could potentially become damaged or exposed to light prematurely.

    • E.

      Edward and Jacob

    Correct Answer
    D. Film cartridge
    Explanation
    The term "film cartridge" is the odd one out in this list because it is the only term related to the physical storage and transport of film. The other terms, such as "film take up spool," "film speed," and "film release," are all related to technical aspects of film photography. "Edward and Jacob" is unrelated to film photography and seems to be a reference to characters from the Twilight series, making it the second odd one out. However, since the question asks for one correct answer, "film cartridge" is the best choice.

    Natalie and Meredith were out taking photos again at Six Flags and they wanted to show both their friends and the background of the park in focus.  Given the settings of f4 @1/500th of a second, how could they adjust the setting to get the desired effect?

    • A.

      F2 at 1/1,000th of a second

    • B.

      F8 @ 1/125th of a second

    • C.

      F22 @ 1/60th of a second

    • D.

      F16 @ 1/25th of a second

    • E.

      F16 @ 1/30th of a second

    Correct Answer
    E. F16 @ 1/30th of a second
    Explanation
    To achieve the desired effect of having both their friends and the background of the park in focus, Natalie and Meredith would need to adjust the aperture and shutter speed settings. A smaller aperture (represented by a higher f-number) such as f16 allows for a larger depth of field, ensuring that both the foreground and background are in focus. A slower shutter speed (1/30th of a second) allows more light to enter the camera, compensating for the smaller aperture. This combination of f16 @ 1/30th of a second would give them the desired effect.
