    Correct Answer
    A. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
    Explanation
    AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. It is a medical condition caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) that weakens the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections and diseases. The term "acquired" refers to the fact that the condition is not hereditary but acquired through exposure to the virus. "Immune Deficiency" indicates the weakened immune system, which is unable to effectively fight off infections. "Syndrome" refers to a group of symptoms and signs that collectively characterize the disease.

    Correct Answer
    cannot
    can not
    can't
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cannot," "can not," and "can't" because all three options correctly indicate that AIDS cannot be transmitted by sharing a drink. AIDS is primarily transmitted through sexual contact, sharing needles, or from mother to child during childbirth or breastfeeding. Sharing a drink does not pose a risk of transmitting the virus.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    You only have aids if you contract the symptoms.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement implies that you only have aids if you experience the symptoms. However, this is incorrect. AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is a medical condition caused by the HIV virus. It is possible to have HIV without showing any symptoms of AIDS. HIV can be present in the body for many years before progressing to AIDS. Therefore, the correct answer is False, as having symptoms is not the only criteria for having AIDS.

  • 5. 

    The most common age group for transmission is aged...

    • A.

      10 and under

    • B.

      11 to 16

    • C.

      17 to 29

    • D.

      30 to 40

    • E.

      40 and over

    Correct Answer
    C. 17 to 29
    Explanation
    The most common age group for transmission is 17 to 29. This age group is more likely to engage in social activities, such as attending parties or going to bars, where there is a higher risk of exposure to the virus. Additionally, individuals in this age group may be less likely to follow strict preventive measures, such as wearing masks or practicing social distancing, contributing to the higher transmission rates.

      Use a condom during sex

    • D.

      Mothers with HIV should use replacement feeding with their infant

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all the mentioned actions are effective in preventing the transmission of HIV and AIDS. Getting tested regularly helps in early detection and timely treatment. Using a condom during sex reduces the risk of HIV transmission. Avoiding the use of previously used needles reduces the chances of infection. Mothers with HIV using replacement feeding instead of breastfeeding can prevent transmission to their infants. Therefore, all the mentioned actions play a crucial role in preventing the spread of AIDS.

This mode of transmission occurs through sexual contact, such as vaginal, anal, or oral sex, with an infected individual. It is a significant concern due to the potential for widespread transmission and the risk of developing serious health complications. Safe sexual practices, such as using condoms and regular testing, are essential in preventing the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
