This is because volleyball is typically played with six players on each team, with three players positioned in the front row and three players positioned in the back row.

    Explanation
    A "Let Serve" is a legal serve that hits the net and continues into the opponent's court. This means that the serve is considered valid and the point can still be played. It is different from an illegal serve that does not count or a serve that the official allows you to do again. In the case of a "Let Serve," the serve is successful despite hitting the net.

    • B.

      Backrow players are not allowed to attack the ball infront of the 3-meter line.

    • C.

      The play is legal as long as the setter is jump setting.

    • D.

      Only legal if the three front row players are unable to attack the ball.

    Correct Answer
    B. Backrow players are not allowed to attack the ball infront of the 3-meter line.
    Explanation
    Backrow players are not allowed to attack the ball in front of the 3-meter line because it is against the rules of volleyball. The 3-meter line is a boundary that separates the front row and back row players. Backrow players are only allowed to attack the ball from behind this line. Attacking the ball in front of the 3-meter line would result in a violation and the opposing team would be awarded a point. Therefore, the correct call in this situation would be to penalize the backrow player for attacking in front of the 3-meter line.

      Three times

    • D.

      As many as it takes

    Correct Answer
    A. One time
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "One time" because the question is asking for the maximum number of times you can touch a ball in a row. Since it specifies "in a row," it implies that you can only touch the ball once before it is considered a new sequence of touches. Therefore, the maximum number of touches in a row is one.

    What is the correct order for using your three contacts?

    • A.

      Set, Pass, Attack

    • B.

      Pass, Attack, Set

    • C.

      Set, Attack, Pass

    • D.

      Pass, Set, Attack

    Correct Answer
    D. Pass, Set, Attack
    Explanation
    The correct order for using your three contacts is Pass, Set, Attack. This sequence follows the basic principles of a volleyball play. First, the ball is passed to the setter, who then sets the ball up for the attacker. Finally, the attacker attacks the ball towards the opponent's court. This order allows for better control and coordination of the play, maximizing the chances of a successful attack.
