    The epidermis is the thickest and innermost layer of the skin.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. The epidermis is actually the thinnest and outermost layer of the skin, not the thickest and innermost layer. The epidermis is responsible for protecting the body from external factors and regulating water loss. It is composed of several layers of cells, including the outermost layer called the stratum corneum. The thickest layer of the skin is the dermis, which lies beneath the epidermis and contains various structures such as blood vessels, hair follicles, and sweat glands.

    The two classifications of bacteria are non - pathogenic and pathogenic.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because bacteria can be classified into two main categories: non-pathogenic and pathogenic. Non-pathogenic bacteria are harmless and do not cause diseases in humans or animals. They can even have beneficial effects, such as aiding in digestion or producing vitamins. On the other hand, pathogenic bacteria are capable of causing diseases and infections. They can invade the body and harm the host by releasing toxins or damaging tissues. Therefore, the statement accurately represents the two classifications of bacteria.

    Viruses can not replicate without the help of a host cell

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Viruses are infectious agents that cannot replicate or reproduce on their own. They lack the necessary cellular machinery and metabolic processes required for replication. Instead, they rely on host cells to provide the necessary resources and machinery for their replication. Once inside a host cell, viruses hijack the cellular machinery to produce more copies of themselves. This process eventually leads to the destruction of the host cell and the release of new virus particles, which can go on to infect other cells. Therefore, the statement that viruses cannot replicate without the help of a host cell is true.
