The honeybee dance language transmits information about distance to food by way of _______ signals.

  1. a. tactile
  2. b. chemical
  3. c. acoustical
  4. d. visual

Summary Introduction

Introduction: Information transmission is done through communication signals. These signals persist if the response benefits the sender and the receiver. If a sender or receiver fails to send signals, then any one of the individuals will be affected.

Explanation

Reason for the correct statement:

Option a. is given as “tactile”.

Using the tactile signals, the honeybee dance language transmits information about the distance to food. Hence, option a. is the correct answer.

Reasons for incorrect statements:

Option b. is given as “chemical”...
