To all the current English students out there who are almost doing their exams, practice of the language is what makes all the difference. Take this quiz and gauge your proficiency.

• 1.

### To become different

• A.

Variable

• B.

Rule

• C.

Change

• D.

Dependent variable

C. Change
Explanation
The word "change" is the correct answer because it is the only word in the given options that directly relates to the phrase "to become different." Change implies a transformation or alteration in something, which aligns with the idea of becoming different. The other options, such as variable, rule, and dependent variable, do not necessarily imply a transformation or becoming different.

### A representation of data

• A.

Table

• B.

Pattern

• C.

Axis

• D.

Vertical

A. Table
Explanation
A table is a representation of data that organizes information into rows and columns. It is a structured format that allows for easy comparison and analysis of data. Tables are commonly used in various fields such as statistics, research, and business to present and summarize large amounts of data in a clear and organized manner.

### A summary of predictable data that tells how to find the next value

• A.

X - axis

• B.

Y - axis

• C.

Change

• D.

Rule

D. Rule
Explanation
The term "rule" refers to a set of guidelines or instructions that can be used to determine the next value in a sequence or pattern. In this context, the summary is describing a predictable data set that provides information on how to find the next value. The x-axis and y-axis are likely related to the data points being analyzed, and the "change" may refer to the pattern or trend observed between consecutive values. Overall, the answer "rule" suggests that there is a consistent pattern or formula that can be applied to find the next value in the sequence.

### The horizontal line on a coordinate graph

• A.

X - axis

• B.

Y - axis

• C.

• D.

Diagonal

A. X - axis
Explanation
The horizontal line on a coordinate graph is referred to as the x-axis. It is a line that runs horizontally across the graph, intersecting the y-axis at the origin (0,0). The x-axis is used to represent the values of the independent variable in a graph, while the y-axis represents the dependent variable. By plotting points on the x-axis and y-axis, we can visually represent and analyze data in a coordinate graph.

### A quantity that changes or varies

• A.

Axis

• B.

• C.

Variable

• D.

Table

C. Variable
Explanation
A variable is a quantity that changes or varies. It is a symbol or letter that represents an unknown value in an equation or expression. Variables are used to solve equations and represent unknown quantities in mathematical problems. They can take on different values, and their values can change depending on the context. In this case, the correct answer is "variable" because it accurately describes a quantity that changes or varies.

### The vertical axis on a coordinate graph

• A.

X - axis

• B.

Y - axis

• C.

• D.

Variable

B. Y - axis
Explanation
The vertical axis on a coordinate graph is known as the y-axis. It is perpendicular to the x-axis and is used to represent the values of the dependent variable in a graph. The y-axis is typically labeled with numerical values and is used to plot points or draw lines to represent data. It helps in understanding the relationship between the dependent and independent variables and allows for the interpretation of the graph.

### A graph that shows the relationship between two variables

• A.

Coordinate graph

• B.

Dependent variable

• C.

Rule

• D.

X - axis

A. Coordinate graph
Explanation
A coordinate graph is a type of graph that displays the relationship between two variables. It consists of a horizontal x-axis and a vertical y-axis, with each point on the graph representing a specific combination of values for the variables. The x-axis typically represents the independent variable, while the y-axis represents the dependent variable. By plotting points on the graph, patterns and trends can be identified, allowing for a better understanding of the relationship between the variables.

### A change that occurs in a predictable way Example:   5, 10, 15, 20, .........

• A.

Table

• B.

Graph

• C.

Variable

• D.

Pattern

D. Pattern
Explanation
The given sequence of numbers follows a specific pattern where each number is obtained by adding 5 to the previous number. This pattern is predictable and consistent, making "pattern" the correct answer.

• 9.

### A variable that depends on the other variable.  For example:  The number of customers on a bike tour depends on the cost of the tour.

• A.

Formula

• B.

Rule

• C.

Dependent variable

• D.

Axis

C. Dependent variable
Explanation
The dependent variable is a variable that is influenced or determined by another variable. In this example, the number of customers on a bike tour is dependent on the cost of the tour. This means that as the cost of the tour increases or decreases, it will directly affect the number of customers participating in the tour. The dependent variable is the outcome or result that is being studied or measured in relation to the independent variable, which is the cost of the tour in this case.

### A rule that represents a mathematical relationship.  Examples:   P = 5h                    Raniqua's Age = Amy's age + 3                  3n + 1

• A.

Function

• B.

Formula

• C.

Variable

• D.

Table

B. Formula
Explanation
A formula is a rule that represents a mathematical relationship. It is used to calculate or express a specific quantity or variable based on the values of other variables. In the given examples, "P = 5h" represents the formula for calculating a quantity "P" based on the value of "h". Similarly, "Raniqua's Age = Amy's age + 3" and "3n + 1" are also formulas that express mathematical relationships between variables. Therefore, the correct answer is "formula".

• 11.

### Every graph should always have which of the following:

• A.

A title

• B.

A label or title for x-axis

• C.

A label or title for y-axis

• D.

All of the above

D. All of the above
Explanation
All of the above options should be included in every graph. A title helps to provide a clear and concise description of the graph's purpose. The label or title for the x-axis provides information about the variable being represented on the horizontal axis, while the label or title for the y-axis provides information about the variable being represented on the vertical axis. Including all of these elements ensures that the graph is properly labeled and understandable to the audience.

• 12.

### The name of the unit we are studying is

• A.

Variables and Negatives

• B.

Accentuate the Variable

• C.

Vampires and Patterns

• D.

Variables and Patterns

D. Variables and Patterns
Explanation
The correct answer is "Variables and Patterns" because it is the only option that accurately represents the topic being studied. The other options, "Variables and Negatives," "Accentuate the Variable," and "Vampires and Patterns," are not relevant to the subject matter.
