    What are the correct cues while making a correct soccer kick?

    • A.

      Buy soccer cleats and shin guards

    • B.

      Kick with the tip of your toe

    • C.

      Inside of shoe or shoelaces

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Inside of shoe or shoelaces
    Explanation
    The correct cue while making a correct soccer kick is to use the inside of the shoe or shoelaces. This means that the player should make contact with the ball using the inner part of their foot or the area where the shoelaces are. This technique allows for better control and accuracy when kicking the ball, as it provides a larger surface area for contact. Using the inside of the shoe or shoelaces also helps to generate more power in the kick.

    What is required to stand on one leg?

    • A.

      Flexibility

    • B.

      Muscles

    • C.

      Balance

    Balance is required to stand on one leg. It is the ability to maintain the body's equilibrium and stability while in a stationary position. Without balance, it would be difficult to maintain the body's position on one leg without falling over. Flexibility and muscles play a role in supporting balance, but the primary requirement is the ability to maintain stability and equilibrium. Motivation is not directly related to standing on one leg.

    • A.

      Being able to lift your friend over your head

    • B.

      How long can you do push-ups

    • C.

      The maximum amount of force that a muscle can exert against some form of resistance in a single effort

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. The maximum amount of force that a muscle can exert against some form of resistance in a single effort
    Explanation
    Muscular strength refers to the maximum amount of force that a muscle can exert against some form of resistance in a single effort. It is the ability of the muscle to generate force and overcome resistance. This can be measured by how much weight or resistance an individual can lift or push. Muscular strength is essential for performing tasks that require heavy lifting or exerting force, such as weightlifting, carrying heavy objects, or pushing heavy equipment. It is different from muscular endurance, which refers to the ability of a muscle to sustain repeated contractions over an extended period of time.

    In soccer, who is the only one that can touch the ball with their hands?

    • A.

      Striker

    • B.

      Midfielder

    • C.

      Goalie

    • D.

      Batter

    Correct Answer
    C. Goalie
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Goalie. In soccer, the goalie is the only player who is allowed to touch the ball with their hands. This is because the goalie's main role is to protect the goal and prevent the opposing team from scoring. They are allowed to use their hands to catch, throw, or save the ball within their penalty area. The other positions mentioned, such as striker, midfielder, and batter, are not allowed to touch the ball with their hands during regular gameplay.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Point non-throwing side/shoulder to the target (i.e., if left-handed thrower, point right shoulder/side towards the target)
    B. Throwing arm way back behind the head 
    C. Step with your opposite foot toward target
    D. Follow through by letting your throwing arm come across the opposite side of your body.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a combination of cues that are important for throwing. Pointing the non-throwing side/shoulder to the target helps with body alignment and accuracy. Throwing arm way back behind the head generates power and momentum. Stepping with the opposite foot toward the target helps with balance and coordination. Following through by letting the throwing arm come across the opposite side of the body ensures a complete and smooth motion. The other cues mentioned, such as closing your eyes and jumping after throwing, are not appropriate or necessary for throwing.

    • D.

      Going to sleep

    Correct Answer
    A. Running a mile
    Explanation
    Running a mile can cause an increase in heart rate because it is a form of cardiovascular exercise that requires the body to work harder and deliver oxygen to the muscles. As the muscles demand more oxygen, the heart pumps faster to supply it, resulting in an increased heart rate. This is a normal physiological response to physical activity and helps to improve cardiovascular fitness.

    • A.

      Skipping

    • B.

      Hopping

    • C.

      Jumping

    • D.

      Galloping

    Correct Answer
    A. Skipping
    Explanation
    Skipping is the correct answer because it involves a sequence of steps followed by hops. In skipping, a person takes a step with one foot and then hops on the same foot, before repeating the sequence with the other foot. This distinctive movement pattern sets skipping apart from hopping, jumping, and galloping, which involve different sequences or patterns of movement.

    • D.

      Both A and B

    Correct Answer
    D. Both A and B
    Explanation
    Both A and B are correct because sliding and galloping both involve the movement of one foot sliding while the other foot steps, and in both cases, both feet are on the ground at the same time. Additionally, in both sliding and galloping, any foot can lead while the other foot slides.

    What is the correct cue while making a proper overhand throw?

    • A.

      Step with the same foot

    • B.

      Step with the non-dominant foot

    • C.

      Stay in the same place

    • D.

      Step with both feet

    Correct Answer
    B. Step with the non-dominant foot
    Explanation
    When making a proper overhand throw, the correct cue is to step with the non-dominant foot. This is important because it helps with balance and power generation. Stepping with the non-dominant foot allows the thrower to transfer their body weight forward and generate more force as they release the throw. It also helps with accuracy and control of the throw. By stepping with the non-dominant foot, the thrower can engage their entire body in the throwing motion, leading to a more effective and powerful throw.

    Which of the following is a critical element of the ready position in badminton?

    • A.

      Holding the racket up

    • B.

      Holding the racket down

    • C.

      Standing with knees locked

    • D.

      Standing with weight on heels

    Correct Answer
    A. Holding the racket up
    Explanation
    In badminton, holding the racket up is a critical element of the ready position. This allows the player to be prepared for quick movements and be ready to hit the shuttlecock. By holding the racket up, the player can easily react to any direction the shuttlecock may come from and be in a position to make a shot. This position also helps in maintaining balance and agility on the court. Standing with the racket down, standing with knees locked, or standing with weight on heels would not provide the same level of readiness and flexibility required in badminton.

    • D.

      Prevent diabetes-induced changes in vision.

    Correct Answer
    B. Reduce the build-up of glucose in the blood.
    Explanation
    Exercise is generally an important part of treatment plans for people with diabetes because physical activity helps reduce the build-up of glucose in the blood. When we exercise, our muscles use glucose for energy, which helps to lower blood sugar levels. Regular physical activity can also increase insulin sensitivity, allowing the body to use insulin more effectively and further reducing blood glucose levels. Additionally, exercise can help with weight management, which is important for individuals with diabetes as excess body weight can lead to insulin resistance and higher blood sugar levels.
