    Explanation
    The team can hit the volleyball a maximum of three times when it is on their side. In volleyball, each team is allowed a maximum of three hits to return the ball over the net. This is known as the three-hit rule. The first hit is usually a pass or a set, the second hit is typically a set or an attack, and the third hit is usually an attack to try and score a point. If the team exceeds three hits, it results in a violation called a "four hits" and the opposing team is awarded a point.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is right back. In volleyball, the server is positioned in the back row on the right side of the court.

    B. When you win the serve
    Explanation
    When you win the serve, it is common for teams to rotate. This is because the serve is a crucial part of the game and winning it indicates that it is now the other team's turn to serve. By rotating, the team ensures that each player gets a chance to serve and that the positions on the court are evenly distributed among the team members.

    Explanation
    When receiving a serve in volleyball, the ideal first pass is a bump/forearm pass. This is because the bump/forearm pass allows for better control and accuracy in directing the ball to the setter. It is a technique where the player's forearms are used to contact the ball, creating a stable platform for the ball to be passed to the setter. The bump/forearm pass is often preferred over other options like setting, blocking, or attacking as it is more reliable in maintaining the flow of the game and setting up a successful attack.

  • 13. 

    A player can hit the volleyball two consecutive times in a row?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    According to the rules of volleyball, a player is not allowed to hit the ball two consecutive times in a row. Each player must wait for another player to touch the ball before they can make contact with it again. This rule is in place to ensure fair play and prevent one player from dominating the game by continuously hitting the ball. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    The volleyball can touch the net on a serve if it reaches the other side and stays in bounds ?

    • A.

      True

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In volleyball, it is allowed for the ball to touch the net on a serve as long as it reaches the other side and lands within the boundaries of the court. This is considered a legal play and the serve is still in play. Therefore, the statement "The volleyball can touch the net on a serve if it reaches the other side and stays in bounds" is true.
