Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is the difference between complex and simple carbohydrates?

    • A.

      Quickness in the digestion

    • B.

      Chemical structure and absorption

    • C.

      A & B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. A & B
    Explanation
    Complex carbohydrates have a more complex chemical structure compared to simple carbohydrates. They are made up of longer chains of sugar molecules, which take longer to break down during digestion. Simple carbohydrates, on the other hand, have a simpler chemical structure and are made up of shorter chains or single sugar molecules. This difference in chemical structure leads to a difference in the speed of digestion. Complex carbohydrates are digested more slowly, providing a steady release of energy, while simple carbohydrates are digested quickly, leading to a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. Additionally, complex carbohydrates are absorbed more slowly in the body compared to simple carbohydrates.

    Which of the following can an enzyme act on?

    • A.

      Protein

    • B.

      Carbohydrates

    • C.

      Lipids

    • D.

      Substrates

    Correct Answer
    D. Substrates
    Explanation
    Enzymes are biological catalysts that facilitate chemical reactions in living organisms. They act on specific molecules called substrates, and through their catalytic activity, they can convert substrates into different products. While proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids are all types of molecules that can serve as substrates for enzymes, the correct answer is "substrates" because enzymes can act on a wide range of substrates, not just limited to proteins, carbohydrates, or lipids.

  • 3. 

    Dietary supplement can be taken in which of the following forms?

    • A.

      Tablet

    • B.

      Liquid

    • C.

      Capsule

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Dietary supplements can be taken in various forms, including tablets, liquids, and capsules. These different forms provide options for individuals who may have preferences or difficulties swallowing certain types of supplements. Tablets are solid forms that are typically swallowed whole, while liquids can be consumed directly or mixed with other substances. Capsules are a popular choice as they contain powdered or liquid ingredients enclosed in a gelatin or vegetarian shell. Therefore, the correct answer is that dietary supplements can be taken in all of these forms.

    What is being referred to when an athlete is said to have "hit the wall"?

    • A.

      Emotional stress

    • B.

      Fatigue

    • C.

      Dehydration

    • D.

      High oxalate

    Correct Answer
    B. Fatigue
    Explanation
    When an athlete is said to have "hit the wall," it means that they have reached a point of extreme fatigue during physical activity. This term is commonly used in endurance sports such as long-distance running or cycling, where athletes may experience a sudden loss of energy and struggle to continue. It is a state where the body's glycogen stores are depleted, leading to a decrease in performance and a feeling of exhaustion.

  • 5. 

    Thickening of the aortic valve can result into which of the following?

    • A.

      Heart murmur

    • B.

      Fatigue

    • C.

      Loss of glucose

    • D.

      Bleeding

    Correct Answer
    A. Heart murmur
    Explanation
    Thickening of the aortic valve can result in a heart murmur. A heart murmur is an abnormal sound heard during a heartbeat, which is caused by turbulent blood flow. When the aortic valve thickens, it can disrupt the normal flow of blood through the heart, leading to turbulent blood flow and the production of a heart murmur. This can be a sign of aortic valve stenosis, a condition where the valve becomes narrowed and obstructs blood flow from the heart.

  • 6. 

    Which of the following can be caused by the formation of plaque-like substance on the walls of the cardiovascular system?

    • A.

      Blocking of the natural flow of blood

    • B.

      Heart attack

    • C.

      Stroke

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The formation of plaque-like substance on the walls of the cardiovascular system can cause blocking of the natural flow of blood, leading to reduced blood supply to various organs and tissues. This can result in a heart attack or stroke, depending on the affected area. Therefore, all of the options mentioned (blocking of blood flow, heart attack, and stroke) can be caused by the formation of plaque-like substance on the walls of the cardiovascular system.

  • 7. 

    Decreased HDL cholesterol is a symptom for all the following except?

    • A.

      Metabolic syndrome

    • B.

      High cholesterol

    • C.

      Hyperlipidemia

    • D.

      Heart murmur

    Correct Answer
    D. Heart murmur
    Explanation
    Decreased HDL cholesterol is not a symptom of a heart murmur. Heart murmurs are abnormal sounds heard during a heartbeat and are typically caused by problems with the heart's valves or chambers. Decreased HDL cholesterol, on the other hand, is associated with metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol, and hyperlipidemia.

  • 8. 

    In humans, where is glycogen mainly stored?

    • A.

      Liver

    • B.

      Skeletal muscle

    • C.

      Kidney

    • D.

      A & B

    Correct Answer
    D. A & B
    Explanation
    Glycogen is mainly stored in the liver and skeletal muscles in humans. The liver stores glycogen as a reserve to maintain blood glucose levels, releasing it when needed. Skeletal muscles store glycogen to provide a local energy source during exercise. Therefore, the correct answer is A & B, as both the liver and skeletal muscles play a significant role in glycogen storage.

  • 9. 

    Muscle contraction, Nerve impulse propagation and Chemical synthesis all derive their energy from which of the following?

    • A.

      Adenosine triphosphate

    • B.

      Glycogen

    • C.

      Glucose

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Adenosine triphosphate
    Explanation
    Muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation, and chemical synthesis all require energy to occur. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the molecule responsible for providing energy in cells. It is commonly referred to as the "energy currency" of the cell. ATP is produced through processes such as cellular respiration, where glucose is broken down to generate ATP. Therefore, ATP is the correct answer as it is the molecule that provides the energy needed for these processes.

  • 10. 

    What is the result if the intake of calories is less than the amount of calories burned?

    • A.

      Blood clot

    • B.

      Loss of weight

    • C.

      Fat loss

    • D.

      Ruptured spleen

    Correct Answer
    C. Fat loss
    Explanation
    If the intake of calories is less than the amount of calories burned, it creates a calorie deficit. This means that the body is not getting enough energy from food to meet its needs. In order to compensate for the deficit, the body starts to use stored fat as a source of energy. This leads to fat loss, which is the correct answer.
