    Cleaning your toilet once a day is the correct answer because it is important to maintain good hygiene and prevent the buildup of bacteria and germs.

    How often should you wash your hair?

    • A.

      Once a week

    • B.

      Once a day

    • C.

      Twice a month

    • D.

      Once a month

    Correct Answer
    C. Twice a month
    Explanation
    Washing your hair too frequently can strip it of its natural oils, leading to dryness and damage. Washing it once a week allows the oils to nourish the hair and scalp. However, going longer than a week without washing can cause a buildup of dirt, oil, and product, which can lead to scalp issues. Washing your hair twice a month strikes a balance between maintaining cleanliness and preserving the natural oils.

    Correct Answer
    D. "Mother, this is my friend.” “Father, I’d like to introduce you to my friend."
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the most appropriate and polite way to introduce your friend to your parents. By addressing each parent individually and using the phrase "I'd like to introduce you to my friend," it shows respect and acknowledges the importance of the introduction. This approach also allows each parent to have their own personal interaction with the friend, rather than being introduced as a group.

Glassware should be washed first as it is the least likely to be contaminated by food residue. Silverware should be washed next as it can tarnish easily and should be handled gently.

Regularly cleaning the sink after each use helps to remove any potential contaminants and keeps the sink clean and sanitary.

Russian table service involves the food being partially prepared in the kitchen and then finished at the table in front of the guests. Compromise table service is a combination of both English and Russian styles, where some dishes are fully prepared in the kitchen while others are finished at the table.
