  • 2. 

    Which sector will be affected greatly if the beach is in the vicinity of an oil spill?

    • A.

      Education

    • B.

      Tourism

    • C.

      Fashion

    • D.

      SMU Students

    Correct Answer
    B. Tourism
    Explanation
    If a beach is in the vicinity of an oil spill, the tourism sector will be greatly affected. This is because the beach is a popular destination for tourists, and an oil spill can lead to contamination of the water and shoreline, making it unsafe and unattractive for visitors. The presence of oil can harm marine life, damage the ecosystem, and create a negative perception of the beach as a polluted and hazardous environment. As a result, tourists are likely to avoid the area, leading to a decline in tourism activities and revenue for businesses dependent on tourism.

    Humans living closer to refineries are more at risk of developing ________.

    • A.

      Flu

    • B.

      Scars

    • C.

      Cancer

    • D.

      Babies

    Correct Answer
    C. Cancer
    Explanation
    Living closer to refineries can increase the risk of developing cancer due to exposure to harmful pollutants and chemicals released during the refining process. Refineries emit various carcinogens such as benzene, formaldehyde, and sulfur dioxide, which can have long-term health effects on nearby residents. These pollutants can enter the air, water, and soil, leading to potential inhalation, ingestion, or absorption into the body. Prolonged exposure to these toxic substances increases the likelihood of developing various types of cancer, including lung, bladder, and leukemia. Therefore, individuals living in close proximity to refineries are more susceptible to cancer.

    • A.

      10 years coal

    • B.

      2 months gas hydrate
