    La castración tiene como fin:

      Amputar el aparato reproductor

    • B.

      Evitar el crecimiento

    • C.

      Evitar el cambio de voz

    • D.

      Ayudar a crecer

    Correct Answer
    C. Evitar el cambio de voz
    Explanation
    La castración tiene como fin evitar el cambio de voz. La castración es un procedimiento que implica la remoción o amputación del aparato reproductor, y en el caso de los hombres, esto incluye los testículos. Al eliminar los testículos, se reduce la producción de hormonas sexuales masculinas, como la testosterona, lo que puede afectar el desarrollo de las características sexuales secundarias, como el cambio de voz. Por lo tanto, la castración puede prevenir o evitar el cambio de voz que normalmente ocurre durante la pubertad en los hombres.

      Cocaina

    • D.

    A. Opio
    Explanation
    Farinelli era adicto al opio. El opio es una droga narcótica que se obtiene de la planta de la adormidera. Tiene propiedades analgésicas y sedantes, y puede generar una sensación de euforia y relajación. El opio ha sido utilizado históricamente como un analgésico y para tratar la adicción a otras drogas. En el caso de Farinelli, su adicción al opio pudo haber sido resultado de su búsqueda de alivio para el dolor físico o emocional, o simplemente por su deseo de experimentar los efectos de la droga.
