Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Research

Emily is going to write a report about the phases of the moon. Which source would be the most useful for her? 

Possible Answers:

A chart outlining Earth's rotation around the sun 

A book about the moon phases 

A book about the solar system 

A chart outlining the solar system

Correct answer:

A book about the moon phases 

Explanation:

A source is something that is used to learn information on a topic. In this case, Emily needs something that will help her learn about the phases of the moon so that she can write a report on it. Of our answer choices, the best answer is a book on the moon phases. 

A chart outlining the solar system or a chart outlining the Earth's rotation around the sun won't provided information about the various moon phases. Also, a book on the solar system might mention the phases of the moon, but it will also have a lot more information that is not relevant  to Emily's report. 

Example Question #2 : Research

Charlie is planning to write a report on various climates throughout America. Which source would be the most useful for him? 

Possible Answers:

An article that discusses various areas around the world 

A map of the country 

An article that compares and contrasts various areas and their climates

A map that is color coded based on temperature 

Correct answer:

An article that compares and contrasts various areas and their climates

Explanation:

A source is something that is used to learn information on a topic. In this case, Charlie needs something that will help him learn about the climates of different areas in America.

Of our answer choices, the best answer is an article that compares and contrasts various areas and their climates. Though a color coded map based on temperature might be something to add into a report, it would not provided enough information to write a complete report because a climate covers more than just temperature. A map of the country would not give Charlie the information that he is needing, nor would an article that just discusses different areas around the world. This report is just focused on America, so there would be a lot of irrelevant information in that article, and it would most likely include more details about various areas, instead of focusing just on climate.
