    Correct Answer
    A. Liver
    Explanation
    Hepatitis is a disease characterized by inflammation of the liver. It is caused by viral infections, alcohol abuse, or autoimmune diseases. The liver is responsible for detoxifying harmful substances, producing bile for digestion, and storing essential nutrients. When the liver is inflamed, it can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, jaundice, abdominal pain, and liver damage. Therefore, it is clear that hepatitis is associated with the liver.

      Type E

    Correct Answer
    B. Type B
    Explanation
    Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) because it can be transmitted through sexual contact with an infected person. It is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) and can also be transmitted through sharing needles or other drug paraphernalia, or from an infected mother to her baby during childbirth. The other types of hepatitis (A, D, and E) are not typically transmitted through sexual contact.

    • B.

      Type B

    • C.

      Type C

    • D.

      Type D

    Correct Answer
    D. Type D
    Explanation
    Hepatitis D can only be infected as a secondary infection to hepatitis B. This is because hepatitis D virus (HDV) requires the presence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) to replicate and cause infection. HDV can only infect individuals who are already infected with HBV, as it uses the HBV envelope to enter liver cells. Therefore, individuals who are not already infected with HBV cannot be infected with HDV alone.

    Which of the following can be prevented by Immunization?

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Immunization can prevent various diseases caused by different types of pathogens. Type A, Type B, and Type D diseases can all be prevented through immunization. Immunization helps to stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies against specific pathogens, providing protection against future infections. By receiving the appropriate vaccines, individuals can develop immunity and reduce the risk of contracting these diseases. Therefore, all of the above types of diseases can be prevented by immunization.

    Explanation
    Acute Hepatitis occurs for a short period of time. It is an inflammation of the liver that lasts less than six months. It can be caused by various factors such as viral infections, alcohol abuse, or drug toxicity. Acute Hepatitis often presents with symptoms such as fatigue, jaundice, abdominal pain, and nausea. It can resolve on its own or progress to chronic Hepatitis if not properly managed. Chronic Hepatitis, on the other hand, lasts for more than six months, while Fulminant Hepatitis is a severe and rapidly progressing form of acute Hepatitis.

    Chronic Hepatitis refers to a prolonged inflammation of the liver that lasts for more than 6 months. Unlike acute hepatitis, which is a short-term infection, chronic hepatitis can persist for years and can lead to serious liver damage. It is important to diagnose and treat chronic hepatitis early to prevent further complications such as cirrhosis or liver cancer.

    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Excessive alcohol intake can indeed cause hepatitis. Alcohol is a toxin that can damage the liver, leading to inflammation and scarring, which are characteristic of hepatitis. Chronic alcohol abuse can result in alcoholic hepatitis, a condition that can progress to more severe liver diseases such as cirrhosis. Therefore, it is important to limit alcohol consumption to prevent the development of hepatitis and other liver-related disorders.
