    Correct Answer
    B. 3 - 5
    Explanation
    The typical duration that a person can survive without water is 3 to 5 days. This is because water is essential for the body to function properly and maintain its balance. Without water, dehydration occurs, leading to various health issues and eventually death. While there have been cases of people surviving longer without water, these are rare and not the norm.

    Which one do you like?

    • A.

      Try to land in a soft area

    • B.

      Avoid obstructions

    • C.

      Jump at an angle away from the vehicle

    • D.

      Open the door completely

    Correct Answer
    A. Try to land in a soft area
    Explanation
    When faced with a situation where you have to jump out of a moving vehicle, it is important to try to land in a soft area. This is because landing on a soft surface, such as grass or a pile of leaves, can help absorb the impact and reduce the risk of injuries. Landing on a hard surface, on the other hand, can result in serious injuries or even death. Therefore, it is crucial to aim for a soft area when jumping out of a moving vehicle to increase the chances of a safe landing.

    • A.

      Fire from Ice

    • B.

      Marshmallow and KitKat

    • C.

      Soda Can and Chocolate

    • D.

      Bow and Drill

Soda Can and Chocolate is a technique where a soda can is polished with chocolate and used as a reflector to create a fire. Bow and Drill is a technique where a bow is used to rotate a drill against a piece of wood to create friction and generate a fire. However, Marshmallow and KitKat are food items and cannot be used to start a fire.

    Which type of spray is best for surviving bear attacks?

    • A.

      Repellent pepper spray

    • B.

      Airless spray gun

    • C.

      Natural insect repellent

    • D.

      Bog Myrtle

    Correct Answer
    A. Repellent pepper spray
    Explanation
    Repellent pepper spray is the best type of spray for surviving bear attacks because it is specifically designed to deter and incapacitate bears. Pepper spray contains capsaicin, a natural irritant that causes temporary blindness, difficulty breathing, and intense pain when sprayed in the eyes and nose. This can effectively deter and discourage a bear from attacking, giving the person a chance to escape. Airless spray guns, natural insect repellents, and bog myrtle are not designed or proven to be effective in deterring bears and may not provide the same level of protection.

    ESD stands for Electric-shock drowning. This refers to the phenomenon where a person is electrocuted in water, typically due to faulty electrical systems in swimming pools, marinas, or boats. Electric-shock drowning can occur when electrical currents leak into the water, causing paralysis and ultimately leading to drowning. It is important to be cautious around water sources with electrical equipment to prevent such accidents.

    • B.

      6 cups

    Correct Answer
    A. 8 cups
    Explanation
    The recommended daily water intake is 8 cups. This is based on the general guideline of drinking 8 ounces (equivalent to 1 cup) of water 8 times a day, which adds up to 64 ounces or 2 liters of water. This amount is considered sufficient to maintain proper hydration and support bodily functions. However, it is important to note that individual water needs may vary based on factors such as age, sex, activity level, and climate.

    Altitude sickness, also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), typically starts to affect people at elevations above 8,000 feet. At this altitude, the air becomes thinner and contains less oxygen, which can lead to symptoms such as headache, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue. Therefore, the correct answer is 8,000 feet.
