    B. Musculoskeletal System
    Explanation
    The musculoskeletal system is responsible for the strength and structure of bones. As we age, our bones naturally become more brittle due to a decrease in bone density and strength. This can be caused by factors such as hormonal changes, lack of physical activity, poor nutrition, and certain medical conditions. The musculoskeletal system plays a crucial role in maintaining bone health, and any disruption or imbalance in this system can lead to increased brittleness of bones.

    Taste buds loose sensitivity causing decreased in appetite. What is this? _________________________.

    Correct Answer
    Gastrointestinal System
    Explanation
    Taste buds losing sensitivity and causing a decrease in appetite is a symptom related to the gastrointestinal system. The gastrointestinal system includes the organs involved in the digestion process, such as the stomach and intestines. When taste buds become less sensitive, it can affect the enjoyment of food, leading to a decreased desire to eat. This can have an impact on the overall functioning of the gastrointestinal system and the body's ability to properly digest and absorb nutrients.

    What are the five sensory changes?

    Correct Answer
    Sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch
    Explanation
    The five sensory changes refer to the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. These senses allow us to perceive and interact with the world around us. Each sense plays a unique role in our daily lives. Sight enables us to see and perceive colors, shapes, and objects. Hearing allows us to detect and interpret sounds. Smell helps us distinguish different scents and odors. Taste allows us to experience different flavors and textures. Touch enables us to feel physical sensations such as pressure, temperature, and pain. These sensory changes are essential for our overall perception and understanding of our surroundings.

    What colors is it easier for the older person to see?

    Correct Answer
    red and orange
    Explanation
    As people age, their eyes undergo changes that affect their ability to perceive colors. The cones in the eyes, which are responsible for color vision, become less sensitive, especially to colors in the blue and green spectrum. On the other hand, red and orange colors are easier for older individuals to see because they have longer wavelengths and are more easily detected by the remaining functioning cones in the eyes. Therefore, red and orange colors stand out more and are more visible to older people compared to other colors.
