    The statement suggests that if a dinosaur were alive today, it would blend into the natural flow of wildlife. However, this is not true as dinosaurs are extinct and their physical characteristics and behaviors would not align with the current wildlife. Additionally, the size and appearance of dinosaurs would make them stand out among modern wildlife, making it impossible for them to blend in seamlessly. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Most dinosaurs were bigger than humans.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Most dinosaurs were bigger than humans because dinosaurs were a diverse group of reptiles that lived millions of years ago. They ranged in size from small, bird-like dinosaurs to massive, long-necked dinosaurs like the Brachiosaurus. Some of the largest dinosaurs, such as the Argentinosaurus, could reach lengths of over 100 feet and weigh up to 100 tons. In comparison, the average height of a human is around 5 to 6 feet. Therefore, it is safe to say that most dinosaurs were indeed bigger than humans.

    Create your own dinosaur and use a what?

    • A.

      Dictonary

    • B.

      Picture

    • C.

      Cell Phone

    • D.

      Construction Paper

    Correct Answer
    B. Picture
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Picture" because creating a dinosaur involves visualizing its appearance. A picture would be the most effective tool to represent and communicate the physical attributes, features, and details of the dinosaur. It allows for a more accurate and detailed representation compared to using a dictionary, which provides only textual descriptions. A cell phone could be used to search for reference images or gather information, but it may not be as suitable for creating a visual representation. Construction paper, on the other hand, is a material used for arts and crafts, but it may not be the most appropriate tool for creating a realistic depiction of a dinosaur.
