Question: An ant goes 3 cm forward then goes 2 cm backwards and then finally 5 cm forward. What is the final position of the ant if the initial position of the ant is shown on the scale? 

A.6 cm
B.7 cm
C.8 cm
D.9 cm
Answer: Option C
: C

Initial position of the ant = 2 cm Ant goes 3 cm forward = 2 cm + 3 cm =5 cm Ant goes 2 cm backward = 5 cm - 2 cm = 3 cm Finally, the ant goes 5 cm forward = 3 cm + 5 cm = 8 cm

The final position of the ant is 8 cm

Question 2. 1 kilometre = ______ metres
  1.    10
  2.    100

  4.    10000
Answer: Option C

Question 3. Add 20 kilometres and 300 metres.
  1.    320 km
  2.    20.3 km
  3.    23 km
  4.    2.03 km
Answer: Option B
: B

We need to convert 300 m to km. To convert a smaller unit (m)to a bigger unit (km), we need to divide by the conversion factor. We know that 1000 m = 1 km 300 m = 3001000= 0.300 km. Hence, 20 km + 0.300 km = 20.300 km = 20.3 km
Question 4. Find the missing quantity:

  2.    19 g
  3.    19 mg
  4.    1.9 g
Answer: Option C
: C

Since the units are same, the values can be easily subtracted 20 mg - 1 mg = 19 mg
Question 6. Find the length of the pencil shown on the scale.

  1.    5 cm
  2.    5.5 cm
  3.    6 cm
  4.    6.5 cm
Answer: Option A
: A

If we observe the picture, the pencil on the scale is starting at 1 cm. Ideally, it should start from zero. So, subtract 1 cm from 6 cm. i.e Length of the pencil = 6 cm - 1 cm = 5 cm
