    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to put foods in the fridge or freezer within two hours to prevent bacterial growth and food spoilage. When left at room temperature for too long, perishable foods can enter the "danger zone" where bacteria multiply rapidly. By refrigerating or freezing food promptly, the growth of harmful bacteria is slowed down, helping to maintain food safety and quality.

    Smelling food is not always a reliable indicator of whether it is safe to eat. Some harmful bacteria do not produce a noticeable odor, and certain foods may still be safe to consume even if they have a slight smell. It is important to consider other factors such as the appearance, texture, and expiration date of the food to determine its safety.
