### What number do you get when you round 6.5217 to the nearest whole number?

• A.

6

• B.

7

• C.

6.6

• D.

6.52

B. 7
Explanation
When rounding a number to the nearest whole number, we look at the digit immediately to the right of the decimal point. If this digit is 5 or greater, we round up by adding 1 to the whole number. In this case, the digit to the right of the decimal point is 2, which is less than 5. Therefore, we do not round up and the nearest whole number to 6.5217 is 6.

Unlike a calendar, which primarily focuses on dates and months, a time line emphasizes the specific moments or events that occurred throughout history. Therefore, a time line is the most appropriate option for an ordered list of historic moments.

• A.

Sphere

• B.

Board

• C.

Cube

• D.

Plane

D. Plane
Explanation
A plane is a flat surface that extends infinitely in all directions. Unlike a sphere, which is a three-dimensional object, a plane has no thickness and is two-dimensional. A board and a cube are also three-dimensional objects and do not fit the description of a flat surface that extends infinitely. Therefore, the correct answer is plane.

### What is a closed plane figure with straight lines?

• A.

Polygon

• B.

Circle

• C.

• D.

Cylinder

A. Polygon
Explanation
A closed plane figure with straight lines is called a polygon. A polygon is a two-dimensional shape that is formed by connecting straight line segments. It has straight sides and angles, and all its vertices lie on the same plane. Examples of polygons include triangles, squares, rectangles, pentagons, and hexagons. A circle, on the other hand, is a curved shape and does not have straight lines. Radius is a measurement used to describe the distance from the center of a circle to any point on its circumference. A cylinder is a three-dimensional shape and is not a closed plane figure with straight lines.
