    The three basic parts of a plant are:

    • A.

      flower, stem, and pollen

    • B.

      Pistil, stamen, roots

    • C.

      Radius, ulna, tibia

    • D.

      leaves, stem, roots

    Correct Answer
    D. leaves, stem, roots
    Explanation
    The three basic parts of a plant are leaves, stem, and roots. Leaves are responsible for photosynthesis, where plants convert sunlight into energy. The stem provides support for the plant and transports water, nutrients, and sugars between the roots and leaves. Roots anchor the plant in the ground and absorb water and nutrients from the soil. These three parts are essential for the survival and growth of a plant.

    • A.

      Move from one place to another by walking

    • B.

      Sleep when they’re tired.

    • C.

      Get rid of body waste.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    C. Get rid of body waste.
    Explanation
    All living things need to get rid of body waste in order to maintain their health and survival. This process is essential for removing toxins and waste products from the body, ensuring that the internal environment remains balanced and functional. Failure to eliminate waste can lead to the buildup of harmful substances, which can be detrimental to an organism's overall well-being. Therefore, getting rid of body waste is a crucial way for all living things to meet their basic needs and stay alive.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

     Green plants can do something that animals cannot.  Write the letter of the correct choice in the blank.

    • A.

      Grow a foot in one day

    • B.

      create their own food from sunlight

    • C.

      Lose body parts and stay alive

    • D.

      Hibernate

    Correct Answer
    B. create their own food from sunlight
    Explanation
    Green plants have the unique ability to perform photosynthesis, a process where they convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into glucose (sugar) and oxygen. This ability allows them to create their own food from sunlight, which is not possible for animals. Animals, on the other hand, rely on consuming other organisms for their nutritional needs. Therefore, the correct answer is "create their own food from sunlight".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The basic unit of structure and function of all living things is called a(n)

    • A.

      Building block.

    • B.

      Cell

    • C.

      Nucleus

    • D.

      Atom

    Correct Answer
    B. Cell
    Explanation
    A cell is the basic unit of structure and function of all living things. It is the smallest unit of life that can perform all the necessary functions of an organism, such as metabolism, reproduction, and response to stimuli. Cells are the building blocks of life, as they can combine to form tissues, organs, and ultimately entire organisms. The other options, such as nucleus and atom, are not the correct answers as they do not encompass the entirety of a living organism's structure and function.

    Rate this question:

    To magnify means to

    • A.

      make something appear clearer.

    • B.

      make something appear larger.

    • C.

      make something appear smaller.

    • D.

      Make something appear blurry.

    Correct Answer
    B. make something appear larger.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "make something appear larger." When you magnify something, you are increasing its size or scale, making it appear bigger than it actually is. This can be done using tools such as magnifying glasses, microscopes, or zoom functions on digital devices. Magnification is commonly used in various fields, such as science, photography, and technology, to enhance visibility and details of objects or images.

      Make something appear clearer.

    • B.

      make something appear larger.

    • C.

      make something appear smaller.

    • D.

      Make something appear blurry.

    Correct Answer
    A. Make something appear clearer.
    Explanation
    To focus means to make something appear clearer. When we focus on something, we bring it into sharp and clear focus, allowing us to see it more clearly. This can be done by adjusting the lens of a camera or the focus of our eyes. By focusing, we enhance the clarity and detail of the object or subject we are looking at, making it easier to perceive and understand.

    A piece of clear material that bends or refracts light rays passing through it is a

    • A.

      Laser.

    • B.

      Microscope.

    • C.

      Lens.

    • D.

      Cell.

    Correct Answer
    C. Lens.
    Explanation
    A lens is a piece of clear material that can bend or refract light rays as they pass through it. It is used in various optical devices such as cameras, telescopes, and eyeglasses to focus or diverge light. Unlike a laser, which amplifies and emits a narrow beam of light, a lens is primarily used for manipulating the path of light. A microscope is an optical instrument that uses lenses to magnify small objects, while a cell is a basic unit of life and not related to the bending or refracting of light.

    • C.

      Convex celled.

    • D.

      compound celled.

    Correct Answer
    B. Multi-cellular.
    Explanation
    A living thing made of more than one cell is called multi-cellular because "multi" means many or more than one, and "cellular" refers to cells. Therefore, the term "multi-cellular" accurately describes an organism that is composed of multiple cells.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A brown mouse and a white mouse mate.  What might their children look like? 

    • A.

      All four are brown.

    • B.

      Three are brown and one is white.

    • C.

      Both A and B are possible.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    C. Both A and B are possible.
    Explanation
    When a brown mouse and a white mouse mate, their children can inherit different combinations of genes from their parents. If the brown mouse is homozygous dominant (BB) and the white mouse is homozygous recessive (bb), then all of their offspring will be brown heterozygous (Bb). This would result in all four children being brown. However, if the brown mouse is heterozygous (Bb) and the white mouse is homozygous recessive (bb), then there is a 50% chance that each offspring will inherit the recessive white gene from the white mouse. This would result in three brown offspring and one white offspring. Therefore, both scenarios are possible.
