    Correct Answer
    B. 7 innings
    Explanation
    A softball game consists of 7 innings. In each inning, both teams have a chance to bat and field. The team that scores the most runs at the end of the 7th inning wins the game. This number of innings is standard in softball and allows for a fair and balanced game, providing enough opportunities for both teams to showcase their skills and strategies.

    Correct Answer
    A. Walk
    Explanation
    If you get 4 balls while batting, it means that the pitcher has thrown 4 pitches outside the strike zone and you did not swing at any of them. As a result, you are awarded a walk and are allowed to advance to first base without having to hit the ball. This is a positive outcome for the batter as it gives them a free base and puts them in a better position to score a run.
