Mini-Quiz: Hearing Direction and Distance

by Ron Kurtus (revised 22 August 2002)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. How do cats hear behind them?

They can only hear to the front

They turn around

They cock their ears backwards

2. How can you tell a sound is from far away?

It is muffled and not very loud

You can barely hear its echo

It goes in one ear and out the other

3. How do bats detect objects to eat?

By processing reflected sounds

By their strong sense of smell

By hearing moths chirp to each other

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Understanding Senses. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.


Be careful, thoughtful and listen
