    Approved refillable tanks should never be filled to more than __ of their total capacity.

    • A.

      97%

    • B.

      95%

    • C.

      80%

    • D.

      70%

    Correct Answer
    C. 80%
    Explanation
    Approved refillable tanks should never be filled to more than 80% of their total capacity because leaving some empty space allows for the expansion of the gas inside the tank due to temperature changes. Overfilling the tank can lead to dangerous situations such as leaks or explosions. By keeping the tank at 80% capacity, there is enough room for the gas to expand without causing any harm.

    • D.

      Moon

    Correct Answer
    A. Ultraviolet
    Explanation
    The ozone layer absorbs and scatters ultraviolet light from the sun, which prevents harmful amounts from reaching the earth. Ultraviolet light is a type of electromagnetic radiation that has a shorter wavelength and higher energy than visible light. It can cause damage to living organisms, including humans, such as sunburns, skin cancer, and damage to the eyes. The ozone layer acts as a protective shield, absorbing and scattering the majority of the ultraviolet light, thus reducing its harmful effects on the earth's surface.

      The same as oxygen

    • D.

      Never found

    Correct Answer
    A. A harmful pollutant
    Explanation
    Ozone at ground level is a harmful pollutant because it is formed through the reaction of sunlight with pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds. This type of ozone, known as tropospheric or ground-level ozone, can cause respiratory issues, aggravate asthma, and contribute to the formation of smog. It is different from the ozone layer in the stratosphere, which is a protective shield that absorbs harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
