    Explanation
    Onycholysis refers to the lifting of the nail plate from the nail bed without shedding. This condition occurs when there is separation between the nail plate and the underlying nail bed, usually caused by trauma, infection, or certain medications. It can result in a white or yellowish discoloration of the nail, and the affected area may become susceptible to secondary infections. Onycholysis can be painful and may require medical attention to prevent further complications.

      Tinea pedis

    Correct Answer
    D. Tinea pedis
    Explanation
    Tinea pedis is the correct answer because it is the medical term for fungal infections of the feet. Plicatured nail refers to a nail that is folded or bent, pyogenic granuloma is a type of skin growth, and pincer nail is a condition where the edges of the nail curve inward. Therefore, tinea pedis is the most appropriate term for fungal infections of the feet.

    • A.

      Ridges

    • B.

      Beau lines

    • C.

      Melanonychia

    Correct Answer
    B. Beau lines
    Explanation
    Beau lines are visible depressions that run along the width of the nail plate. These lines occur when there is a disruption in the growth of the nail due to injury or illness. They can appear as deep grooves or ridges on the nails. Melanonychia, on the other hand, refers to the presence of dark pigmentation or brown/black streaks on the nails, while ridges are raised lines that run vertically or horizontally on the nails. Therefore, the correct answer for visible depressions running along the width of the nail plate is beau lines.

    • D.

      Crest

    Correct Answer
    B. Crown
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "crown". The question is asking for the area between the apex (top) and the back of the parietal ridge. The crown is the top part of the head, so it fits the description given in the question. The other options, nape, bang, and crest, do not accurately describe the area in question.

      All purpose

    • C.

      Tint

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. All purpose
    Explanation
    An all-purpose comb is versatile and can be used for various styling and cutting techniques. It is suitable for both barbers and hairstylists as it can be used for different hair types and textures. Unlike a barber comb, which may have specific features for barbering techniques, an all-purpose comb is designed to be used by professionals in any hairdressing or styling situation. Wide tooth combs are typically used for detangling and distributing conditioner, while tint combs are specifically designed for applying hair color. Therefore, the most appropriate answer is all purpose.

This technique involves cutting different lengths of hair at different angles, creating layers that add movement and texture to the hair. The layers are usually cut in a way that the top layers are shorter than the bottom layers, giving a cascading effect. This type of cut is popular for adding volume and dimension to the hair.

This technique is often used to thin out thick hair or add texture to straight hair. By slicing through the hair, the stylist can create different lengths and angles, giving the hair more movement and reducing the weight.
