Question 2

The following diagrams show how a bee communicates the position of a food source to other bees when it returns to the hive.

Bee hive

Waggle dance

Diagram A: The food source is at an angle of 40° to the left of the sun at a distance of more than 100m from the hive.

Diagram B: The waggle dance which the bee performs in the hive.

The six diagrams below show the positions of food sources found on different days by six different bees. In each case the distance of the food source from the hive is greater than 100m.

By the side of each of the diagrams draw the waggle dance which you would expect the bee to perform on its return to the hive.
