Most of us are not aware of the continuous cycle that water undergoes every single day. Water is very vital to the existence and growth of life on earth. Therefore, it is essential to understand the cycle and the processes involved. Want to test your knowledge on the water cycle? Take up this quick trivia and get to do just that. All the best!

• 1.

### Change of gas into liquid

• A.

Condensation

• B.

Precipitation

• C.

Climate change

• D.

Evaporation

• E.

Freezing

A. Condensation
Explanation
Condensation refers to the process in which a gas transforms into a liquid. This occurs when the gas cools down and loses energy, causing the particles to come closer together and form a liquid. It is a common phenomenon that can be observed in everyday life, such as when water droplets form on a cold glass or when clouds are formed in the atmosphere. Therefore, condensation is the correct answer for the given question.

### What rises in the water cycle?

• A.

Rain

• B.

Snow

• C.

Vapour

• D.

Ice

• E.

Water

C. Vapour
Explanation
In the water cycle, water evaporates from bodies of water such as lakes, rivers, and oceans due to the heat from the sun. This process converts liquid water into water vapor, which then rises into the atmosphere. Once in the atmosphere, the water vapor cools and condenses to form clouds. Eventually, the condensed water droplets in the clouds combine and fall back to the Earth's surface as precipitation, which can be in the form of rain, snow, or ice. Therefore, vapor is the correct answer as it is the form in which water rises in the water cycle.

### What is the stage that follows condensation and freezing?

• A.

Capillary action

• B.

Evaporation

• C.

Condensation

• D.

Runoff

• E.

Precipitation

E. Precipitation
Explanation
Precipitation is the stage that follows condensation and freezing. Condensation occurs when water vapor in the air cools and changes into liquid droplets, while freezing is the process by which a liquid changes into a solid. After condensation and freezing, the next stage is precipitation, which refers to any form of water that falls from the atmosphere to the Earth's surface, such as rain, snow, sleet, or hail. This occurs when the condensed water droplets or ice crystals in the clouds become too heavy to stay suspended in the air and fall to the ground due to gravity.

### Evaporation is also known as

• A.

Condensation

• B.

Vaporization

• C.

Water cycle

• D.

Water

• E.

Vapour

B. Vaporization
Explanation
Evaporation is the process by which a liquid, such as water, changes into a gas or vapor. It occurs when the liquid molecules gain enough energy to overcome the forces holding them together and escape into the air. Therefore, the correct answer is "vaporization," as it accurately describes the transformation of a liquid into a gas.
