    C. Keep your wrists in a straight position
    Explanation
    Keeping your wrists in a straight position is important to prevent injuries when working. This helps to maintain proper alignment and reduce strain on the muscles and tendons in the wrists and hands. When the wrists are bent or twisted, it can lead to conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis. By keeping the wrists straight, you are promoting good ergonomics and minimizing the risk of repetitive strain injuries.

Practicing personal hygiene helps prevent the spread of germs and diseases, promotes overall health and well-being, and contributes to a positive self-image. Ergonomics, on the other hand, is the study of designing and arranging objects in the environment to fit the human body's physical and cognitive abilities. Personal grooming refers to the process of maintaining one's appearance through activities such as hair styling, shaving, and applying makeup.

  • 6. 

    A hygiene pack for work should include all of the following EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Clear Nail Polish

    • B.

      Deodorant

    • C.

      Sanitizing Hand Wipes

    • D.

      Toothbrush

    Correct Answer
    A. Clear Nail Polish
    Explanation
    A hygiene pack for work should include items that promote personal cleanliness and hygiene. Clear nail polish is not typically considered an essential item for maintaining personal hygiene at work. While deodorant helps control body odor, sanitizing hand wipes help keep hands clean, and a toothbrush promotes oral hygiene, clear nail polish does not serve a similar purpose. Therefore, clear nail polish is the item that should be excluded from the hygiene pack for work.

      Smoke in a designated smoking area

      Perform self-checks

    • D.

      Use mouthwash or breath mints

    Correct Answer
    A. Smoke in a designated smoking area
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to smoke in a designated smoking area. This is because smoking is harmful to health and is generally not recommended. The other options, such as washing hands, performing self-checks, and using mouthwash or breath mints, are all important for maintaining personal hygiene and overall health.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Being well groomed begins with?

    • A.

      Stylish clothing

    • B.

      Trendy makeup

    • C.

      Looking & smelling fresh

    • D.

      Polite communication

    Correct Answer
    C. Looking & smelling fresh
    Explanation
    Looking and smelling fresh is the starting point for being well groomed because it indicates good personal hygiene. When a person looks and smells fresh, it shows that they take care of themselves and pay attention to their appearance. This can make a positive impression on others and contribute to their overall grooming. Stylish clothing and trendy makeup can enhance one's appearance, but without the foundation of looking and smelling fresh, they may not have the desired effect. Polite communication is also important for overall grooming, but it is not the initial step in the process.

      A poor reputation

    • B.

      Loss of clients

    • C.

      Loss of income

    • D.

      Loss of practical skills

    Correct Answer
    D. Loss of practical skills
    Explanation
    Failing to maintain a professional image can have various potential consequences such as a poor reputation, loss of clients, and loss of income. However, loss of practical skills is not directly related to maintaining a professional image. While a professional image is important for career growth and success, it does not directly impact one's practical skills. Practical skills are developed through training, education, and experience, and can be maintained or improved regardless of one's professional image.

    Explanation
    When choosing what to wear for work, it is important to consider factors such as looking flattering, considering your body type and shape, and looking in the mirror from various angles. However, wearing whatever is most comfortable may not always be the best choice as it may not align with the professional dress code or convey a professional image.
