Animals And Environment Quiz - How Animals Adapt In Environment? - Quiz

Animals adapt both physically and behaviorally, depending on their environments. Animal adaptations help animals stay alive either by protecting them from predators or making it easier to catch prey. These animals have adapted to their environments, including climate, terrain, and available plant life. Take this quiz to know more about which animals adapt to what kind of environment.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Why do animals in the dessert have thick skins?

    • A.

      They look cool

    • B.

      It prevents water loss from the body

    • C.

      Because they don't listen to their mummas since birth

    Correct Answer
    B. It prevents water loss from the body
    Explanation
    Animals in the desert have thick skins to prevent water loss from their bodies. The desert environment is extremely arid and lacks sufficient water sources. Thick skin acts as a barrier, reducing the amount of water that evaporates from the animal's body through the process of transpiration. This adaptation helps them retain moisture and survive in the harsh desert conditions where water is scarce.

    Aquatic animals breathe using their

    • A.

      Lungs

    • B.

      Gills

    • C.

      Stomach

    • D.

      Brain

    Correct Answer
    B. Gills
    Explanation
    Aquatic animals breathe using gills. Gills are specialized organs that extract oxygen from water and release carbon dioxide. They are located on the sides of the animal's body and are made up of thin, feathery structures called filaments. As water passes over the gills, oxygen from the water diffuses into the bloodstream, while carbon dioxide is released back into the water. This adaptation allows aquatic animals to efficiently extract oxygen from their watery environment, enabling them to survive and thrive underwater.

    Amphibians use lungs to breathe on land and skin to breathe under water

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Amphibians have the ability to breathe both on land and underwater. While on land, they primarily use their lungs to extract oxygen from the air. However, when submerged in water, they rely on their moist skin to absorb oxygen directly from the surrounding water. This unique adaptation allows them to effectively respire in both environments, making the statement true.

    Arboreal animals have which of the following

    • A.

      Strong claws

    • B.

      Strong arms

    • C.

      Strong legs

    • D.

      Sharp teeth

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Strong claws
    B. Strong arms
    C. Strong legs
    Explanation
    Arboreal animals, which are animals that live in trees, require certain adaptations to navigate their environment. Strong claws are essential for gripping onto branches and climbing trees. Strong arms are necessary for maneuvering and supporting the animal's weight while climbing. Strong legs are important for jumping between branches and maintaining balance. While sharp teeth may be beneficial for some arboreal animals, it is not a characteristic that applies to all of them. Therefore, the correct answer is strong claws, strong arms, and strong legs.

    Which is the only mammal which can fly

    • A.

      Option 1

    • B.

      Option 2

    • C.

      Option 3

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    D. Option 4
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Option 4. Bats are the only mammals that can fly. They have specialized wings made of a thin membrane of skin stretched between elongated fingers. This allows them to maneuver in the air and catch prey on the wing. While other mammals like flying squirrels and colugos can glide, bats are the only ones capable of sustained flight.

    • A.

      Salvation

    • B.

      Hibernation

    • C.

      Migration

    • D.

      Transmission

    Correct Answer
    B. Hibernation
    Explanation
    Hibernation is the correct answer because it refers to the behavior of animals eating a lot of food and then going to sleep in caves or holes. During hibernation, animals lower their body temperature and metabolic rate to conserve energy during periods of food scarcity. This allows them to survive through the winter when food is scarce.

    Which of the following are aerial animals

    • A.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Option 2
    C. Option 3
    D. Option 4
    Explanation
    Options 2, 3, and 4 are the correct answers because they represent animals that are capable of flying or living in the air. Aerial animals are those that have the ability to fly or glide, such as birds, bats, and insects. These animals have adapted wings or other specialized structures that allow them to move through the air. Option 1 is not a correct answer because it does not specify any particular animal or characteristic related to aerial animals.

    How to parasites feed?

    • A.

      They bite into their prey

    • B.

      They poison their prey

    • C.

      They suck the blood of their prey

    • D.

      They crush their prey and swallow it whole

    Correct Answer
    C. They suck the blood of their prey
    Explanation
    Parasites feed by sucking the blood of their prey. This means that they have specialized mouthparts or structures that allow them to pierce the skin of their host and extract blood. By doing so, they obtain the necessary nutrients for their survival and reproduction. This method of feeding is common among various types of parasites, such as ticks, fleas, and leeches.
