Weather is the daily state of the atmosphere, whereas climate describes the weather change over some time. We got to understand more about the factors affecting the weather and why it is the way it is. Take up this climate and weather quiz for 10th grade and see how much you recall your classes. All the best!

• 1.

### 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 amount of sunlight is not included in weather because weather refers to the atmospheric conditions such as temperature, wind speed, humidity, precipitation, and atmospheric pressure. The amount of sunlight, on the other hand, is a measure of the intensity or duration of sunlight and is more related to climate or daily weather patterns rather than being a direct factor of weather.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Atmospheric pressure is:

• A.

Amount of cloud cover in the atmosphere

• B.

Amount of water vapor 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. The weight of the air creates pressure, which can be measured using various units such as millibars or inches of mercury. It is important to note that atmospheric pressure decreases with increasing altitude, as there is less air above a surface to exert force. Therefore, the correct answer is "the force on a surface by the weight of the air above it."

### 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 patterns and trends of weather conditions in a specific region. It encompasses factors such as temperature, precipitation, wind patterns, and other atmospheric conditions that persist over a substantial period, usually years or decades. Unlike daily weather reports, which provide information about current weather conditions, climate represents the average weather patterns and variations over a longer duration. 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 determines both the plants that are able to grow and the animals that live in an area. Different climates have varying levels of temperature, precipitation, and sunlight, which directly impact the types of plants that can survive and thrive in that environment. For example, desert climates with high temperatures and minimal rainfall are suitable for cacti and other succulents, while tropical rainforests with high temperatures and abundant rainfall support a diverse range of plant species. The presence of certain plants then attracts specific types of animals that rely on them for food, shelter, or other resources. Therefore, climate plays a crucial role in shaping the flora and fauna of an area.

### 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 used to collect data on temperature, humidity, wind speed, and precipitation. Weather balloons are used to gather information about atmospheric conditions at different altitudes. Satellites provide valuable data on cloud cover, temperature patterns, and other weather phenomena from space. By using all of these equipment, meteorologists can gather comprehensive and accurate information about the weather.

### Weather can change drastically from day to day?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Weather can change drastically from day to day due to various factors such as changes in air pressure, temperature, and wind patterns. These changes can be influenced by weather systems such as high and low-pressure systems, fronts, and atmospheric disturbances. Additionally, natural phenomena like the movement of air masses, the interaction of warm and cold air, and the influence of ocean currents can also contribute to rapid weather changes. Therefore, it is true that weather can vary significantly from one day to another.

### One way to describe the 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 question asks for a way to describe the weather, and all three options - cloudy, rainy, and -2 degrees Celsius - can be used to describe different aspects of the weather. Cloudy describes the sky condition, rainy describes the presence of rain, and -2 degrees Celsius describes the temperature. Therefore, all three options are valid ways to describe the weather.

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 recognized as one of the world climate zones. The world climate zones are typically classified based on factors such as temperature, precipitation, and vegetation patterns. The Polar climate zone is characterized by extremely cold temperatures and little precipitation, while the Continental climate zone experiences large seasonal temperature variations. However, the Australian climate does not fit into any of these recognized zones, as it is unique due to factors such as its location, ocean currents, and the influence of the surrounding deserts.

### Factors that affect 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
All of the factors mentioned (distance from the equator, height above sea level, and the amount of water around) have an impact on climate. Distance from the equator determines the amount of sunlight and heat received, while height above sea level affects temperature and air pressure. The amount of water around, such as oceans and lakes, influences humidity levels and precipitation patterns. Therefore, all of these factors contribute to the overall climate of a region.

• 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 not true. While it is generally warmer near the equator, there are various factors that can influence temperature such as elevation, ocean currents, and prevailing winds. Additionally, seasonal variations and local climate patterns can also affect temperature. Therefore, it is not always warmer the closer you are to the equator.
