    • A.

      Radiolarians

    • B.

      Volvox

    • C.

      Giardia

    • D.

      Paramecium

    Correct Answer
    B. Volvox
    Explanation
    Volvox is the correct answer because it is the name of the organism depicted in the slide. Volvox is a type of colonial green algae that forms spherical colonies made up of thousands of individual cells. These colonies are visible to the naked eye and have a distinct spherical shape. The other organisms listed, Radiolarians, Giardia, and Paramecium, are different types of single-celled organisms and do not match the description or appearance of the organism in the slide.

    Some Amoeba are the causative agent of ______________?

    Correct Answer(s)
    Dysentery
    dysentery
    Explanation
    Amoeba can be the causative agent of dysentery. Dysentery is a gastrointestinal infection characterized by inflammation of the intestines, leading to severe diarrhea with blood and mucus in the stool. Certain species of amoeba, such as Entamoeba histolytica, can infect the intestines and cause amoebic dysentery. These amoebas are typically transmitted through contaminated food or water and can cause significant illness if left untreated. Therefore, it is important to identify and treat amoebic dysentery promptly to prevent complications and further spread of the infection.

    • D.

      Ameoba

    Correct Answer
    B. Trypanosoma
    Explanation
    Trypanosoma is the correct answer for the causative agent of sleeping sickness. Sleeping sickness, also known as African trypanosomiasis, is caused by the parasite Trypanosoma brucei. It is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected tsetse flies. The parasite affects the central nervous system, leading to symptoms such as fever, fatigue, headaches, and sleep disturbances, which can progress to more severe neurological symptoms if left untreated. Giardia, Difflugia, and Amoeba are not associated with sleeping sickness.
