Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Describe three methods of keeping your body’s machine finely tuned.

  • 2. 

    Promoting sound sleep can be achieved by

    • A.

      Avoiding naps

    • B.

      Not exercising.

    • C.

      Reading before bedtime.

    • D.

      Taking time to enjoy your food.

    Correct Answer
    A. Avoiding naps
    Explanation
    Avoiding naps promotes sound sleep because taking daytime naps can disrupt the body's natural sleep-wake cycle, making it harder to fall asleep at night. Napping during the day can also reduce the amount of sleep pressure accumulated, leading to less overall sleepiness and difficulty falling asleep at night. By avoiding naps, one can ensure that they are tired enough to fall asleep easily and maintain a consistent sleep schedule.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The true definition of health is

    • A.

      Feeling energetic and ready to go when you wake up.

    • B.

      Having relatively few episodes of illness.

    • C.

      Your own experience with the level of health you create.

    • D.

      Being at least ten pounds underweight.

    Correct Answer
    C. Your own experience with the level of health you create.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Your own experience with the level of health you create." This answer is supported by the previous statements in the question, which mention feeling energetic, having few episodes of illness, and being underweight as possible definitions of health. However, the most comprehensive and accurate definition is based on an individual's personal experience and perception of their own health. It recognizes that health is subjective and can vary from person to person.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    All of the following are characteristics of anorexia nervosa except

    • A.

      Forced starvation.

    • B.

      Extended fasts.

    • C.

      Eating only one food at a time for weeks.

    • D.

      Forced purges.

    Correct Answer
    D. Forced purges.
    Explanation
    Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by self-imposed starvation, extended periods of fasting, and a restricted diet consisting of only one food at a time for weeks. These behaviors are driven by a fear of gaining weight and a distorted body image. Forced purges, however, are not a characteristic of anorexia nervosa. Forced purges are more commonly associated with bulimia nervosa, another type of eating disorder. In bulimia nervosa, individuals engage in episodes of binge eating followed by compensatory behaviors such as forced vomiting or excessive exercise.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Symptoms of stress include

    • A.

      Irritability.

    • B.

      High productivity.

    • C.

      Falling asleep all the time.

    • D.

      A high energy level.

    Correct Answer
    A. Irritability.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is irritability. This is because irritability is commonly associated with stress. When individuals are under stress, they may become easily agitated, impatient, and have a shorter fuse. This can lead to increased irritability and difficulty in managing emotions. While high productivity and a high energy level can sometimes be symptoms of stress, falling asleep all the time is not typically associated with stress.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    STDs are common in the United States and

    • A.

      Without treatment usually last only about six weeks.

    • B.

      Can cause long-term damage without treatment.

    • C.

      Have easily detectable signs and symptoms.

    • D.

      Are easier to diagnose in women.

    Correct Answer
    B. Can cause long-term damage without treatment.
    Explanation
    If left untreated, STDs can cause long-term damage to the body. This is because STDs are infections that can spread and affect various organs and systems in the body. Some STDs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in women, which can cause infertility and chronic pain. Other STDs, like syphilis, can cause serious complications if not treated, such as damage to the heart, brain, and other organs. Therefore, it is important to seek treatment for STDs to prevent long-term damage to one's health.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    AIDS is the last stage of a viral infection caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and

    • A.

      Is not just transmitted through sexual contact.

    • B.

      Is uncommon among heterosexuals.

    • C.

      Is transmitted through coughs, mosquitoes, and toilet seats.

    • D.

      Is easy to detect because of its obvious symptoms.

    Correct Answer
    A. Is not just transmitted through sexual contact.
    Explanation
    AIDS is not just transmitted through sexual contact. It can also be transmitted through other means such as sharing needles or syringes with an infected person, receiving contaminated blood transfusions or organ transplants, or from mother to child during childbirth or breastfeeding. It is important to practice safe behaviors and take necessary precautions to prevent the transmission of HIV and reduce the risk of developing AIDS.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The term "safer sex" is used instead of "safe sex" because

    • A.

      Abstinence alone is only morally acceptable choice.

    • B.

      The choice to have multiple partners always poses the risk of infection.

    • C.

      The term “safe sex” condones the choice to have sex.

    • D.

      Sex is safer than it used to be.

    Correct Answer
    B. The choice to have multiple partners always poses the risk of infection.
    Explanation
    The term "safer sex" is used instead of "safe sex" because the choice to have multiple partners always poses the risk of infection. This implies that there is no completely safe option when it comes to sexual activity involving multiple partners, as the risk of infection is always present. Therefore, it is more accurate to use the term "safer sex" to emphasize the importance of taking precautions and minimizing risks rather than implying that there is a completely safe option.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following combinations is not recommended should you choose to have sex with protection?

    • A.

      A male condom and a diaphragm.

    • B.

      A male condom and a Norplant device.

    • C.

      A male condom and the “pill.”

    • D.

      A male condom and an oil-based lubricant.

    Correct Answer
    D. A male condom and an oil-based lubricant.
    Explanation
    Using an oil-based lubricant with a male condom is not recommended because it can cause the condom to break or tear. Oil-based lubricants, such as petroleum jelly or baby oil, can weaken the latex material of the condom, making it more prone to breakage. It is recommended to use water-based or silicone-based lubricants with condoms, as they are safe to use and do not damage the condom.

      Quit and do nothing about our problems.

    • C.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Admit when we don’t have the resources to handle a problem and get help.
    Explanation
    The Power Process "Surrender" suggests that we should admit when we don't have the resources to handle a problem and get help. This means recognizing our limitations and understanding that it is okay to ask for assistance when needed. It is about acknowledging that we cannot always handle everything on our own and that seeking support is a sign of strength rather than weakness. This Power Process applies to any problem, big or small, and encourages us to reach out for help when necessary.

    • D.

      Students need information about the costs of substance abuse.

    Correct Answer
    D. Students need information about the costs of substance abuse.
    Explanation
    Recognizing the truth about our desires for alcohol, drugs, and cigarettes is important because students need information about the costs of substance abuse. This suggests that understanding the negative consequences associated with substance abuse is crucial for students. By being aware of the costs, they can make informed decisions and potentially avoid addiction or seek help if needed.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    When you ask someone to coach you rather than give advice, you are asking

    • A.

      For that person to make your choices.

    • B.

      For that person to do more listening than speaking.

    • D.

    Explanation
    When you ask someone to coach you rather than give advice, you are indicating that you want them to prioritize listening over speaking. This means that you are seeking their guidance and support in helping you find your own solutions and make your own choices, rather than them simply telling you what to do. By emphasizing listening, you are emphasizing the importance of understanding your thoughts, feelings, and perspectives, which can ultimately lead to a more effective and empowering coaching experience.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Being infected with HIV is a death sentence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Being infected with HIV is not a death sentence anymore. With advancements in medical treatments, people living with HIV can now lead long and healthy lives. Antiretroviral therapy (ART) helps to control the virus and prevent it from progressing to AIDS, the most advanced stage of HIV infection. Additionally, there are various support systems and resources available to help individuals manage their condition and improve their quality of life. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that being infected with HIV is a death sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Reporting a rape is the same thing as pressing charges.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Reporting a rape and pressing charges are not the same thing. Reporting a rape refers to informing the authorities about the incident, while pressing charges involves actively pursuing legal action against the perpetrator. Reporting a rape is a personal choice made by the survivor, whereas pressing charges is a decision that involves legal proceedings. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that reporting a rape is the same as pressing charges.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Sometimes date rape can occur when neither the victim nor the perpetrator realizes a crime has taken place.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Date rape can occur when neither the victim nor the perpetrator realizes a crime has taken place because it can involve situations where consent is not clearly communicated or understood. In some cases, the victim may not recognize that they were sexually assaulted because they may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or they may have been coerced or manipulated into engaging in sexual activity. Similarly, the perpetrator may not perceive their actions as criminal if they believe they had the victim's consent or if they do not fully understand the concept of consent.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The only 100 percent effective method of preventing pregnancy is the birth control pill.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because there is no 100 percent effective method of preventing pregnancy. While the birth control pill is highly effective when used correctly, it is not foolproof and there is still a small chance of pregnancy. Other methods such as condoms, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and sterilization also have varying levels of effectiveness but none can guarantee 100 percent prevention of pregnancy.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Fad diets are not especially useful in curing obesity. Fad diets often promote quick weight loss through restrictive and unsustainable eating patterns, which can lead to nutrient deficiencies and ultimately result in weight regain. The most effective way to address obesity is through a balanced and long-term approach that includes a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and behavior changes.
