Question: 387

17. Which biome contains maples, squirrels, and black bears?

A. Tundra
B. Tropical rain forest
C. Temperate grasslands
D. Taiga
E. Deciduous forest

Correct Answer: E


E Maples are deciduous trees (they lose their leaves); this is the best tip-off for choice E. You should be able to eliminate choice A (tundra has only small shrubby plants) and choice D (taiga is coniferous forest) easily. Tropical rain forest (choice B) and temperate grasslands (choice C) do not have black bears.
