Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these statements is wrong?

    • A.

      Earth revolves around sun.

    • B.

      There are 10 planets in our solar system.

    • C.

      Trees have life.

    • D.

      We can not breath in space.

    Correct Answer
    B. There are 10 planets in our solar system.
    Explanation
    The statement "There are 10 planets in our solar system" is wrong. In 2006, the International Astronomical Union redefined the definition of a planet, and as a result, Pluto was reclassified as a "dwarf planet." Therefore, there are currently only 8 planets recognized in our solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

    Which of these is not a fish?

    • A.

      Blue whale

    • B.

      Shark

    • C.

      Gold fish

    • D.

      Cat fish

    Correct Answer
    A. Blue whale
    Explanation
    Blue whale is not a fish because it is a mammal, not a fish. While sharks, goldfish, and catfish are all types of fish, blue whales are marine mammals that belong to the group of cetaceans. They are the largest animals on Earth and breathe air through lungs, unlike fish that have gills to extract oxygen from water.

    Fishes are capable of having oxygen underwater because:

    • A.

      They have special lungs.

    • B.

      Through their eyes.

    • C.

      They can't, they have to come to the surface.

    • D.

      They have gills.

    Correct Answer
    D. They have gills.
    Explanation
    Fishes are capable of having oxygen underwater because they have gills. Gills are specialized respiratory organs that allow fishes to extract oxygen from water. As water passes over the gills, oxygen is absorbed into their bloodstream, while carbon dioxide is released. This adaptation enables fishes to efficiently extract oxygen from their aquatic environment, allowing them to survive and thrive underwater.

    Which is the fastest running land animal?

    • A.

      Dog

      Ostrich

    • D.

      Snake

    Correct Answer
    B. Cheetah
    Explanation
    The cheetah is the fastest running land animal. It can reach speeds of up to 70 miles per hour in short bursts, allowing it to chase down its prey with incredible speed and agility. Its long, slender body and long legs contribute to its ability to run at such high speeds. The cheetah's acceleration and agility make it a formidable predator in the animal kingdom.

    Humans have proved to be the most intelligent creature on Earth. True or false?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Humans have demonstrated their superior intelligence through their ability to create complex societies, develop advanced technologies, and solve intricate problems. They possess higher cognitive abilities, such as reasoning, problem-solving, and critical thinking, which set them apart from other creatures on Earth. Their capacity for language, creativity, and innovation further supports the claim that humans are the most intelligent species.

    • D.

      9

    Correct Answer
    C. 4
    Explanation
    There are four layers on Earth. These layers are the crust, mantle, outer core, and inner core. The crust is the outermost layer and is made up of solid rock. The mantle is beneath the crust and is composed of semi-solid rock. The outer core is a liquid layer made of molten iron and nickel. Finally, the inner core is the solid center of the Earth, consisting of iron and nickel.

    What is Newton's first law?

    • A.

      A body at rest or constant moving state will remain so unless an outer force acts upon this.

    • B.

      Every action has equal and opposite reaction.

    • C.

      Gravity does not work when there is no air.

    Correct Answer
    A. A body at rest or constant moving state will remain so unless an outer force acts upon this.
    Explanation
    Newton's first law, also known as the law of inertia, states that an object at rest will stay at rest, and an object in motion will stay in motion with the same speed and direction, unless acted upon by an external force. This means that objects tend to resist changes in their motion, either staying at rest or maintaining their current state of motion, unless a force is applied to them.

    Which of these is not a fruit?

    • A.

      Apple

    • B.

      Orange

    • C.

      Onion

    • D.

      Mango

    Correct Answer
    C. Onion
    Explanation
    Onion is not a fruit because it is a vegetable. Unlike fruits, onions do not develop from the ovary of a flowering plant and contain seeds. Instead, onions are bulbs that grow underground and are used as a culinary ingredient for their savory flavor. While apples, oranges, and mangoes are all fruits that develop from the flowering plants' ovaries and contain seeds, onions are classified as vegetables due to their different botanical characteristics.

    Correct Answer
    D. Thermometer
    Explanation
    A gadget used to check temperature is called a thermometer. It is a device that measures temperature by using a temperature-dependent physical property, such as the expansion of a liquid or gas, or the resistance of a metal. Thermometers are commonly used in various fields such as medicine, weather forecasting, and scientific research to monitor and measure temperature accurately.
