    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the up-cut saw should only be used if someone has been trained by a fellow student. However, this is not necessarily true. It is important to receive proper training before using any power tool, including the up-cut saw, but the source of that training can vary. It could be provided by a fellow student, but it could also be provided by a teacher, instructor, or any other qualified individual. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important for only one person to operate the up-cut saw at a time to ensure safety and prevent accidents. Having multiple operators can lead to confusion, lack of coordination, and increase the risk of injuries. By allowing only one person to operate the saw, it ensures that they can focus on the task at hand, follow proper safety procedures, and maintain control over the equipment. This practice helps to minimize the chances of accidents and promotes a safe working environment.

Cleaning up the cut offs helps to maintain a clear working area, reducing the chances of tripping or getting injured by debris. Therefore, it is important to follow this advice and the statement is true.
