Phokojwe, i will give a answer.... :hmz: ....if correct, i will give someone else a chance to ask a question. :wink:

True. :thumbs_up:
"Rats, especially Kangaroo Rats can last longer without water than a Camel. A Camel can last for several weeks without water while a Kangaroo Rat does not drink water at all. This is because these Rats live in arid environments and are able to metabolize water from their food, which consists of primarily seeds".

True or False?
A group of Geese on the ground is a gaggle - a group of Geese in the air is a skein.

True or False:

The earliest sunrise and the latest sunset of the year always coincides with the summer solstice (longest day of the year); conversely, the latest sunrise and the earliest sunset of the year always occurs at the winter solstice (shortest day of the year)?

False - whilst earliest / latest sunrise / sunset and latest / earliest sunrise / sunset occur around the summer and winter solstice the exact date that they occur is a function of the latitude at which you are situated.

For example, in Perth, WA our earliest sunrise was 30/11/2013 and latest sunset is 6/1/2014 whilst Brisbane, QLD was 25/11/2013 and 6/1/2014 respectively. Johannesburg was 27/11 and 5/1/2014 respectively.
