|Questions 47 to 56 refer to the following passage:
Bumblebees are found throughout the world, primarily in the temperate and northern
regions. The bumblebees are considered to be the most primitive of the social bees. Their
colonies lack much of the structure and highly evolved behavior of the honey bees; however,
like the honey bees, the bumblebees are plant feeders and important pollinators of crops. A
typical colony consists of at least one queen, several males, and numerous workers. Only
young fertilized queens survive the winter to establish new colonies the next spring. The nests
are normally located deep in undisturbed ground, like fence rows, and are supplied with a
mixture of pollen and honey. During late summer, a colony usually contains between 100 and
500 bees. Although bumblebees are two to three times larger than honey bees, they are
neither as aggressive nor as abundant as the honey bees, and therefore not as dangerous.
Why are bumblebees considered the most primitive of the social bees?

During which time of year do bumblebee queens form their nests?
