### Weather DOES NOT include which factor:

• A.

Temperature

• B.

Wind speed

• C.

Amount of sunlight

• D.

All are factors of weather

C. Amount of sunlight
Explanation
The correct answer is "amount of sunlight." This is because weather refers to the atmospheric conditions such as temperature, wind speed, precipitation, and humidity. While sunlight is an important factor in determining weather patterns, it is not considered as one of the factors that directly fall under the definition of weather.

### Atmospheric pressure is:

• A.

Amount of cloud cover in the atmospHere

• B.

Amount of water vapour in the atmospHere

• C.

The force on a surface by the weight of the air above it

• D.

None of the above

C. The force on a surface by the weight of the air above it
Explanation
Atmospheric pressure refers to the force exerted by the weight of the air above a surface. This force is caused by the gravitational pull on the air molecules in the atmosphere. It is responsible for various weather phenomena and affects the movement of air masses. Atmospheric pressure is measured using instruments such as barometers and is an important factor in understanding weather patterns and predicting changes in the atmosphere.

### Climate is:

• A.

Pattern of weather over a long period of time

• B.

The weather report for the day

• C.

The changing of weather throughout the day

• D.

None of the above

A. Pattern of weather over a long period of time
Explanation
Climate refers to the long-term pattern of weather conditions in a specific region or area. It encompasses factors such as temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind patterns, and atmospheric conditions that persist over a prolonged period, typically spanning decades or centuries. Unlike weather, which can vary from day to day, climate provides a broader perspective on the average and predictable conditions experienced in a particular location. Therefore, the correct answer is "pattern of weather over a long period of time."

### Climate determines

• A.

The plants that are able to grow

• B.

The animals that live in the area

• C.

All of the above

• D.

None of the above

C. All of the above
Explanation
Climate plays a crucial role in determining the types of plants that can thrive in a particular area. Different plants have specific temperature, precipitation, and sunlight requirements, which are influenced by the climate. Similarly, the climate also affects the availability of food and water sources, temperature, and shelter, which determine the types of animals that can survive in a particular region. Therefore, climate influences both the plant and animal life in an area, making "all of the above" the correct answer.

### What types of equipment would a meteorologist use to measure weather?

• A.

Weather stations

• B.

Weather balloons

• C.

Satellites

• D.

All of the above

D. All of the above
Explanation
A meteorologist would use weather stations, weather balloons, and satellites to measure weather. Weather stations are ground-based instruments that collect data on temperature, humidity, wind speed, and precipitation. Weather balloons carry instruments called radiosondes that measure temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure as they ascend through the atmosphere. Satellites provide valuable information about cloud cover, temperature patterns, and atmospheric conditions from space. By using all of these equipment, meteorologists can gather comprehensive data to analyze and forecast weather accurately.

### Weather can change drastically day to day?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Weather is influenced by various factors such as temperature, humidity, air pressure, and wind patterns. These factors are constantly changing, leading to variations in weather conditions from day to day. Therefore, it is true that weather can change drastically from one day to another.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### One way to describe weather is:

• A.

Cloudy

• B.

Rainy

• C.

-2 degrees Celsius

• D.

All of the above

D. All of the above
Explanation
The correct answer is "all of the above" because the statement includes multiple descriptions of weather conditions. It mentions that it is cloudy, rainy, and -2 degrees Celsius, indicating a combination of these weather elements. Therefore, selecting "all of the above" encompasses all the given descriptions accurately.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Which of the following is NOT a World Climate zone?

• A.

Polar

• B.

Continental

• C.

Australian

• D.

All of the above

C. Australian
Explanation
The Australian climate zone is not considered a world climate zone because it is a continent rather than a distinct climate region. The other options, Polar and Continental, refer to well-known climate zones that exist in different parts of the world. The Australian climate can be further classified into various sub-climates such as tropical, desert, and temperate, but it is not recognized as a separate world climate zone.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Factors that effect climate include:

• A.

Distance from the equator

• B.

Height above sea level

• C.

The amount of water around

• D.

All are factors

D. All are factors
Explanation
The correct answer is "all are factors" because all of the mentioned factors - distance from the equator, height above sea level, and the amount of water around - have an impact on the climate. The distance from the equator determines the amount of sunlight received, which affects temperature. Height above sea level influences air pressure and temperature. The amount of water around, such as oceans or lakes, affects humidity and precipitation patterns. Therefore, all of these factors play a role in shaping the climate.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### The closer you are to the equator it is ALWAYS warmer

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement "The closer you are to the equator it is ALWAYS warmer" is false. While it is generally true that the areas near the equator tend to have warmer climates, there are several factors that can influence temperature. Elevation, ocean currents, and prevailing winds can all affect temperature patterns, leading to variations in temperature even within regions close to the equator. Additionally, seasonal changes and weather patterns can also cause fluctuations in temperature. Therefore, it is not always warmer the closer you are to the equator.
