1. Did God consider the Great Flood necessary to correct His own mistake?
Correct Answer: C (Yes. When God found out how evil man is, God was sorry He created man, repented, and vowed to slaughter mankind (plus all the animals). “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth...And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them” (Genesis 6:5-7).
2. Was the Great Flood, itself, a mistake by God?
Correct Answer: D (Yes. After violently slaughtering everyone, God suddenly realized that mankind is inherently evil, prompting God to promise never to violently slaughter everyone and everything again.) “And the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done”(Genesis 8:21).
3. Were Noah and his family spared from the Great Flood because Noah was fair and perfect?
Correct Answer: D (B and C) “Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations” (Genesis 6:9); “And [Noah] drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without...And Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his younger son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren” (Genesis 9:21-9:25).
4. How many of each animal specie did God order Noah to take aboard the ark?
Correct Answer: D (B and C.) And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive” (Genesis 6:19-20). “Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female; and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth” (Genesis 7:2-3).
5. How long did it take Noah to load the ark with members of every animal specie in the world?
Answer: A (One day.) “In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort” (Genesis 7:13-14).
6. How big was the ark that housed the hundreds of millions of animals from all over the Earth.
Correct Answer: B (Less than 200 yards long, 33.3 yards wide and 20 yards tall.) “And this is the fashion of which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits” (Genesis 6:15). (A cubit is between 18 and 24 inches.)
7. How many bay windows did God have Noah place within the ark so the countless animals could breathe?
Correct Answer: C (One window of 18 to 24 inches). “A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above” (Genesis 6:16).
8. How long did the Flood last?
Correct answer: C (Both of the above.). “And the flood was forty days upon the earth” (Genesis 7:17). “And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days” (Genesis 7:24).
9. What effect did the Great Flood have on trees?
Correct Answer: C (Trees survived or regenerated themselves within seven days of the water subsiding.) “And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month...And it came to pass at the end of forth days...he sent for a dove from him...But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth...And he stayed yet other seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark; And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth (Genesis 8:5-11).
10. How did God react to Noah’s sacrifice of members of every animal specie after the Great Flood?
Correct Answer: B (God enjoyed the smell of burning flesh.) “And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the Lord smelled a sweet savour” (Genesis 8:20-21).
