    The three most common types of hits used in the game of volleyball are set, spike, and bump/forearm pass. A set is when a player uses their fingertips to redirect the ball to a teammate for an attack. A spike is a powerful hit where a player jumps and forcefully hits the ball over the net.

It is a technique used to score points by hitting the ball with great force and speed, usually aiming to make it difficult for the opposing team to defend or return the ball. The term "spike" is commonly used in volleyball to describe this specific type of attack.

    • D.

      Right front

    Correct Answer
    A. Right back
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "right back" because in volleyball, the server is typically positioned in the back row on the right side of the court. This allows them to have a better angle for serving and also provides more defensive coverage in case the opposing team attacks the ball.

  • 7.

    • A.

    • D.

      When the ball hits the net

    Correct Answer
    B. When you win the serve
    Explanation
    In team sports like volleyball, teams rotate when they win the serve. This rotation ensures that each player gets a chance to serve and play in different positions on the court. By rotating, teams can distribute the workload and utilize the skills of each player effectively. It also helps in maintaining a fair and balanced gameplay, as every player gets equal opportunities to contribute to the team's success.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    When receiving a serve, you ideally want the first pass to be which of the following:

    • A.

      Set

    • B.

      Block

    • C.

      Attack

    • D.

      Bump/ forearm pass

    Correct Answer
    D. Bump/ forearm pass
    Explanation
    When receiving a serve in volleyball, the ideal first pass is a bump/forearm pass. This is because the bump pass allows for better control and accuracy in directing the ball to the setter, who can then set up the attack. The bump pass is typically used in serve receive situations as it provides a stable platform to accurately pass the ball to the setter, setting up the team for a successful offensive play. The set, block, and attack options are not suitable for the first pass in this situation.

    • D.

      Setter position

    Correct Answer
    A. Back row
    Explanation
    In volleyball, the players situated in the back zone when the serve is made are called the back row players. This is because they are positioned at the back of the court, closer to the baseline, when the serve is initiated. These players typically specialize in defensive skills and are responsible for receiving serves, digging, and passing the ball to set up offensive plays. The back row players also have restrictions on attacking, as they are not allowed to jump and attack the ball in front of the attack line.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. In most sports, teams rotate clockwise to the serving position, not counterclockwise. This rotation ensures that each team has an equal opportunity to serve and prevents any unfair advantage. By rotating clockwise, teams take turns serving from different positions on the court, promoting fairness and balance in the game.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    In volleyball, this is the contact that sets up the spike:

    • A.

      Dig

    • B.

      Set

    • C.

      Block

    • D.

      Tip

    Correct Answer
    B. Set
    Explanation
    In volleyball, the contact that sets up the spike is called the "set." The set is a pass made with the fingertips to direct the ball to a specific location near the net, allowing another player to spike the ball over the net and towards the opposing team's court. This contact is crucial as it determines the height, speed, and angle of the ball, enabling the spiker to make an effective attack.

    It is proper etiquette to roll the volleyball under the net when returning the ball to the other team after a rally.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Rolling the volleyball under the net when returning the ball to the other team after a rally is considered proper etiquette. This is because rolling the ball ensures that it stays low and doesn't go over the net, which allows the receiving team to easily set up their next play. It also reduces the risk of the ball accidentally hitting someone or causing injury. By rolling the ball, players show respect and sportsmanship towards their opponents.

      1

    • D.

      2

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    In a tied score situation, you need to win by 2 points. This means that if the score is tied, you must score 2 additional points to secure the win. If you only score 1 additional point, the score will still be tied and the game will continue. Therefore, winning by 2 points ensures a clear victory in a tied score scenario.

    A serve that is not returnable AND results in a point is considered:

    • A.

      Ace

    • B.

      Fault

    • C.

      Block

    • D.

      Assist

    Correct Answer
    A. Ace
    Explanation
    An ace is a serve that is not returnable by the opponent and results in a point for the server. It is considered a powerful and skillful serve because it is difficult for the opponent to react and return the ball successfully. Unlike a fault, which is a serve that does not land within the boundaries of the opponent's court, an ace is a perfectly executed serve that directly scores a point without any chance for the opponent to make a play. It is different from a block or an assist, which are actions performed by players during a rally rather than a serve.
