Which list lists the units of metric capacity from least to greatest?

• A.

Milliliter, liter

• B.

Millimeter, centimeter, meter, kilometer

• C.

Liter, milliliter

• D.

Milligram, gram, kilogram

A. Milliliter, liter
Explanation
The units of metric capacity are listed from least to greatest in the given answer. The milliliter is the smallest unit of capacity, followed by the liter which is a larger unit. Therefore, the correct order is milliliter, liter.

Rate this question:

• 6.

Which list lists the units of customary capacity from least to greatest?

• A.

Milliliter, liter

• B.

Millimeter, centimeter, meter, kilometer

• C.

Ounce, cup, pint, quart of a gallon, gallon

• D.

Gallon, quart of a gallon, pint, cup, ounce

C. Ounce, cup, pint, quart of a gallon, gallon
Explanation
The correct answer lists the units of customary capacity from least to greatest. The units listed are ounce, cup, pint, quart of a gallon, and gallon. This order is correct because ounce is the smallest unit of capacity, followed by cup, pint, quart of a gallon, and gallon, which is the largest unit of capacity.

Rate this question:

The word volume is sometimes used as a synonym for ________________________.

• A.

Area

• B.

Perimeter

• C.

Capacity

• D.

Mass

C. Capacity

What units are used to measure area?

• A.

Square units

• B.

Large units

• C.

Pretty units

• D.

Cubic units

A. Square units
Explanation
Square units are used to measure area because area is a two-dimensional measurement that represents the amount of space enclosed within a shape. Square units refer to the measurement of the area in terms of the number of squares that can fit within the shape. This is commonly used in various fields such as mathematics, architecture, and engineering to quantify the size of surfaces or regions. Large units, pretty units, and cubic units do not specifically measure area and are not appropriate for this purpose.

What units are used to measure volume?

• A.

Square units

• B.

Large units

• C.

Pretty units

• D.

Cubic units

D. Cubic units
Explanation
Cubic units are used to measure volume. Volume is a three-dimensional measurement that represents the amount of space occupied by an object or substance. Cubic units are used to measure this volume because they involve all three dimensions, typically expressed as length x width x height. This unit of measurement is commonly used in mathematics, physics, engineering, and other fields where volume calculations are necessary.

Rate this question:

• 10.

A school textbook most likely weighs ...

• A.

2 lbs

• B.

20 lbs

• C.

200 lbs

• D.

1 T

A. 2 lbs
Explanation
A school textbook most likely weighs 2 lbs because textbooks are typically designed to be portable and easy to carry. A weight of 2 lbs is a reasonable and manageable weight for students to carry in their backpacks or handbags. It is unlikely for a school textbook to weigh 20 lbs, 200 lbs, or 1 T (ton) as these weights would be excessively heavy and impractical for students to transport.
