Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Research

Andrew is planning to write a report on animals that are extinct. Which source would be the most useful for him? 

Possible Answers:

An articles that talks about Bald Eagles 

An article that discusses various extinct animals 

A chart that outlines the life cycle of a Bald Eagle 

A chart that includes pictures of extinct animals 

Correct answer:

An article that discusses various extinct animals 

Explanation:

A source is something that is used to learn information on a topic. In this case, Andrew needs something that will help him learn about different extinct animals.

Of our answer choices, the best answer is an article that discusses various extinct animals. A chart the includes pictures of extinct animals wouldn't provide enough information to write a report. Also, the report is on more than just one endangered animal; thus, information only on the Bald Eagle would not be as helpful as an article that discusses several endangered animals. 

Example Question #2 : Writing

Kara is going to write a report about beach vacations. Which source would be the most useful for her? 

Possible Answers:

A book about beaches around the world 

A book about sites to see in Paris 

A book about what to pack for a vacation 

A book about popular travel destinations 

Correct answer:

A book about beaches around the world 

Explanation:

A source is something that is used to learn information on a topic. In this case, Kara needs something that will help her learn about beach vacations. Of our answer choices, the best answer is a book about beaches around the world.  

A book that is about popular travel destinations might include some beaches, but there will also be a lot of information that Kara won't need for her report. A book about what sites to see in Paris is not the best choices because Paris is not a place for a beach vacation, and it is only one place and Kara's report will need to talk about multiple beach vacations. Though what to pack for a beach vacation might be included in Kara's report, the main point of the report is about beach vacations in general, so the best answer is a book about beaches around the world.
