    If I see a book that badly needs repair I will:

    • A.

      Show it to the librarian

    • B.

      Put the book away

    Correct Answer
    A. Show it to the librarian
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the best course of action would be to show the book that badly needs repair to the librarian. The librarian is responsible for managing the library's collection and ensuring that all books are in good condition. By showing the book to the librarian, they can assess the extent of the damage and take appropriate steps to repair or replace it. Putting the book away without informing the librarian may result in the book being overlooked and not receiving the necessary repairs.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

      Sort them into piles by what section of the library they belong in

    • C.

      Ask the librarian if she has read them all

    • D.

      Check to see if any of them are Wimpy kid books

    Correct Answer
    B. Sort them into piles by what section of the library they belong in
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to sort the books into piles by what section of the library they belong in. This is the most efficient way to organize the books and ensure that they are placed in the correct section of the library. Alphabetical order may not be necessary if the library follows a different system of categorization. Asking the librarian if she has read them all or checking for specific books is not relevant to the task of putting the books away.

      Picture books

    • D.

      Reference

    Correct Answer
    B. Non-fiction

    The book is categorized as non-fiction because it is labeled with a Dewey Decimal Classification number, specifically E 599.82DIR. The Dewey Decimal Classification system is used to organize books by subject matter, and the "E" section typically refers to books about natural sciences and animals. The number 599.82 specifically refers to books about mammals. Therefore, this book would be placed in the non-fiction section of the library.
