      Meterologist

    • C.

      Mathematician

    • D.

      School student

    Correct Answer
    B. Meterologist
    Explanation
    A meteorologist is a person who studies and predicts the weather. They use scientific methods and tools to analyze atmospheric conditions and make forecasts about future weather patterns. They collect data from various sources such as satellites, weather stations, and radar systems to understand weather patterns and make predictions. Meteorologists play a crucial role in providing accurate weather information to the public, which helps in planning activities and ensuring safety in various sectors such as agriculture, aviation, and disaster management.

  • 2. 

    When the same water is used over and over again in our environment, it is called the __________ _________.

    Correct Answer
    water cycle
    water cycles
    Explanation
    The term "water cycle" refers to the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the Earth's surface. It involves processes such as evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and runoff. This cycle allows water to be reused and redistributed throughout the environment, ensuring the availability of water for various purposes. The use of the plural form "water cycles" in the answer options is incorrect, as the term "water cycle" is already a collective noun encompassing all the processes involved.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Why is the such an important part of the water cycle?

    • A.

      It causes evaporation of water

    • B.

      It provides energy to drive the water cycle

    • C.

      It will change the air temperature

    • D.

      All of above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of above
    Explanation
    The sun is such an important part of the water cycle because it causes evaporation of water, provides energy to drive the water cycle, and also changes the air temperature. The sun's heat causes water to evaporate from bodies of water, which then forms clouds and eventually leads to precipitation. The energy from the sun drives the entire water cycle process, ensuring the continuous movement of water on Earth. Additionally, the sun's rays directly affect the temperature of the air, which in turn influences the water cycle.

  • 4. 

       What is the name of this science equipment?

    • A.

      Anemometer

    • B.

      Thermometer

    • C.

      Temperature

    • D.

      Fahrenhiet

    Correct Answer
    B. Thermometer
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "thermometer" because it is a science equipment used to measure temperature. It is commonly used in various fields such as weather forecasting, medicine, and scientific research. A thermometer typically consists of a glass tube filled with a liquid (usually mercury or alcohol) that expands or contracts based on the temperature. By observing the level of the liquid, the temperature can be determined.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

       With this cold bottle of water, what is the science explanation for the water droplets on the outside of the bottle?

    • A.

      Condensation

    • B.

      Evaporation

    • C.

      Transpiration

    • D.

      Leaking bottle

    Correct Answer
    A. Condensation
    Explanation
    When a cold bottle of water is taken out of a refrigerator or exposed to a colder environment, the temperature difference causes the air around the bottle to cool down. As a result, the water vapor present in the air loses its energy and condenses into liquid water droplets on the surface of the bottle. This process is known as condensation, which explains the presence of water droplets on the outside of the bottle.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

     Most of the world's water is located in the ocean and is not drinking water.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement correctly states that most of the world's water is located in the ocean. However, it also mentions that this water is not drinking water, implying that it is not suitable for consumption. Therefore, the answer "True" is correct as it aligns with the information provided in the statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Snow is not a form of precipitation in our water cycle because it is frozen.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Snow is indeed a form of precipitation in the water cycle. Precipitation refers to any form of water that falls from the atmosphere to the Earth's surface. Snow is formed when water vapor in the atmosphere condenses directly into ice crystals, which then fall to the ground as snowflakes. Therefore, snow is a type of precipitation that occurs when the temperature is cold enough for the water vapor to freeze into ice crystals before reaching the ground.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is the name of this science weather equipment?

    • A.

      Rain gauge

    • B.

      Anemometer

    • C.

      Thermometer

    • D.

      Wind vane

    Correct Answer
    B. Anemometer
    Explanation
    An anemometer is a scientific weather equipment used to measure the speed and direction of wind. It typically consists of three or four cups mounted on a rotating shaft. As the wind blows, the cups rotate, and the speed of rotation is directly proportional to the wind speed. By measuring the rotation speed, the anemometer can provide accurate wind speed readings. Therefore, the anemometer is the correct answer for the given question.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    This place is where most of our fresh drinking water is naturally located. It is called:

    • A.

      Rain water

    • B.

      Reservoir

    • C.

      Ground water

    • D.

      Evaporation

    Correct Answer
    C. Ground water
    Explanation
    Ground water refers to the water that is naturally located beneath the Earth's surface in porous spaces and cracks in rocks and soil. It is an important source of fresh drinking water as it is replenished through the process of precipitation and seepage. Ground water is accessed through wells and is less susceptible to contamination compared to surface water sources. Therefore, it is a vital resource for human consumption and various other purposes.

    How has a meterologist's equipment changed over the last decade? Give examples to explain.

  • 11. 

    Which of these is shown in the diagram?

    • A.

      Precipitation

    • B.

      Evaporation

    • C.

      Transpiration

    • D.

      Condensation

    • E.

      Multiplication

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Precipitation
    B. Evaporation
    D. Condensation
    Explanation
    The diagram likely represents the water cycle, showing the various stages of precipitation, evaporation, and condensation. Precipitation refers to the process of water falling from the atmosphere to the Earth's surface in the form of rain, snow, sleet, or hail. Evaporation is the process by which water changes from a liquid to a gas, typically from the Earth's surface into the atmosphere. Condensation is the process of water vapor in the atmosphere cooling and changing back into liquid form, forming clouds or dew.
