    Explanation
    The given statement "The fastest land animal, the cheetah, also lives in Africa" is a factual statement rather than an opinion. It states a verifiable fact about the cheetah's living habitat in Africa. Opinions are subjective statements that express personal beliefs or preferences, whereas this statement is based on objective information.

  • 6. 

    Read this sentence from the article. They fascinate us with their beauty, their grace, and their speed. What is an antonym for the word fascinate?

    • A.

      Scare

    • B.

      Bore

    • C.

      Entertain

    • D.

      Humor

    Correct Answer
    C. Entertain
    Explanation
    The word "fascinate" means to captivate or attract someone's interest. An antonym for this word would be "bore," which means to cause someone to feel uninterested or unengaged. Therefore, "bore" is the opposite of "fascinate" because it describes something that does not captivate or attract someone's interest.

    What will happen to some animal species if current trends continue?

    • A.

      Their numbers will increase.

    • B.

      There will be no significant change.

    • C.

      They will become extinct.

    • D.

      They will move to other habitats.

    Correct Answer
    C. They will become extinct.
    Explanation
    If current trends continue, some animal species will become extinct. This means that they will no longer exist in the wild. Extinction occurs when a species cannot adapt to its changing environment, faces competition from other species, or experiences habitat loss. This can lead to a decline in population size and eventually the complete disappearance of the species. Extinction is a natural process, but human activities such as deforestation, pollution, and climate change have accelerated the rate at which species are becoming extinct.

      Pleased

    • D.

      Confused

    Correct Answer
    B. Concerned
    Explanation
    The author feels concerned about the fate of endangered animals. This can be inferred from the fact that the word "concerned" is used to describe the author's feelings. It suggests that the author is worried or troubled about the situation of endangered animals, indicating a sense of care and empathy towards them.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What are two reasons why it is important to care for endangered animals?

  • 10. 

    The following statement is an opinion rather than a fact. The black rhinoceros has very poor eyesight and a bad temper.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is an opinion rather than a fact because the terms "very poor" and "bad temper" are subjective and can vary depending on individual perspectives. While it is true that black rhinoceroses have relatively poor eyesight compared to other animals, the extent to which it is considered "very poor" is a matter of interpretation. Similarly, describing their temper as "bad" is subjective and can vary depending on the specific behavior observed. Therefore, this statement cannot be considered a factual statement.
