Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The roadrunner runs around the desert, looking for food.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the roadrunner runs around the desert in search of food. Since roadrunners are known to be fast and agile birds that primarily feed on insects, lizards, and small animals, it is reasonable to assume that they would indeed run around the desert to find their prey. Therefore, the answer "True" is correct.

    Roadrunners live only in Mexico and the U.S.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Roadrunners are a type of bird that is found exclusively in Mexico and the United States. They have a distinct appearance and are known for their ability to run at high speeds on the ground. Due to their specific habitat requirements, roadrunners are not found in any other countries or regions. Therefore, the statement "Roadrunners live only in Mexico and the U.S." is true.

    THe female gives the male gift in the spring.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The female gives the male gift in the spring" is incorrect. In many species, it is actually the male who gives gifts to the female during courtship or mating rituals. This behavior is often observed in birds, where the male presents the female with food or other objects as a display of his suitability as a mate. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that the bird has the ability to develop a reliance on humans. This implies that the bird is capable of forming a bond or attachment to people, potentially for survival or other needs. This behavior is commonly observed in certain species of birds that have been domesticated or exposed to human interaction over time.

  • 5. 

    A roadrunner is afraid of people and stays away from them.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because roadrunners are not afraid of people and do not necessarily stay away from them. Roadrunners are known to be curious and will often approach humans if they feel comfortable. They are generally not afraid and may even come close to investigate or search for food.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A big difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures is typical in the desert.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because deserts typically experience extreme temperature fluctuations between day and night. During the day, the desert receives direct sunlight and the temperature can rise to very high levels. However, at night, the lack of cloud cover and moisture causes the desert to lose heat rapidly, resulting in significantly cooler temperatures. This stark contrast in temperatures is a characteristic feature of desert climates.

    A roadrunner uses a lot of energy keeping warm in winter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because roadrunners are adapted to warm climates and do not need to use a lot of energy to keep warm in winter. They have specialized feathers and behaviors that help them regulate their body temperature and conserve energy.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The roadrunner is a typical bird.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The roadrunner is a typical bird" is not necessarily true. The term "typical" implies that the roadrunner represents the characteristics or features commonly found in birds. However, roadrunners have unique characteristics that set them apart from other birds, such as their ability to run at high speeds and their preference for a terrestrial lifestyle. Therefore, the statement is false as the roadrunner is not a typical bird.
