An 'explanation' explains something: it tells us the 'how', 'why' and 'what' of something we want to know about, for example:
- How does a steam engine work?
- What makes us feel sleepy?
If you are curious about life and/or a budding scientist, you will love explanations! Reading about how something works, what makes the world turn or even why some people have brown eyes and some blue, is so interesting. It's one thing to read an explanation, but this quiz will see how good you are at spotting written explanations.
This 11-plus English quiz will test you to see if you can recognize explanatory statements. This is a really easy test, but you might learn a few interesting things.
