The other four basic tastes are sweet, sour, bitter, and umami. These tastes are believed to be innate and are experienced by humans universally. Saltiness is typically associated with the presence of sodium ions in food, and it plays an essential role in enhancing flavors and balancing the overall taste profile of dishes.

    A male cow is called

    • A.

      A cow

    • B.

      A foal

    • C.

      An ox

    • D.

      A crow

    Correct Answer
    C. An ox
    Explanation
    An ox is the correct answer because it refers to a male cow that has been trained and used for work, such as plowing fields or pulling carts. The term "ox" specifically denotes a castrated adult male bovine, while "cow" is a more general term that can refer to both males and females. "Foal" refers to a young horse, and "crow" is a type of bird, so they are not the correct terms for a male cow.

    The Sun is a star because it is a massive ball of hot, glowing gases that produces its own light and energy through nuclear fusion. It is the closest star to Earth and is the center of our solar system. Ceres, Pluto, and 243 Ida are all celestial bodies, but they are not stars. Ceres is a dwarf planet, Pluto is a dwarf planet as well, and 243 Ida is an asteroid.

    The word "discombobulate" means to confuse. This is evident from the context of the other options provided, which do not accurately capture the meaning of the word. To lose a limb, to ignore, and to cry are all unrelated to the definition of "discombobulate." Therefore, the correct answer is to confuse.
