    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    To stay current, you must renew ________ status each year.  To take time off, renew ______ status.

    • A.

      Inactive / active

    • B.

      Active / inactive

    • C.

      Passive / active

    • D.

      Active / passive

    Correct Answer
    B. Active / inactive
    Explanation
    To stay current, you must renew your active status each year. This implies that in order to remain up-to-date and engaged, one needs to renew their active status. On the other hand, to take time off, it is necessary to renew your inactive status. This suggests that when someone wants to take a break or be less involved, they should renew their inactive status.

  • 4. 

    ______ has been described as the result of pressures or demands which outweigh a person's capacity to respond to them.

    • A.

      Diving

    • B.

      Anxiety

    • C.

      Stress

    • D.

      Bouyancy

    Correct Answer
    C. Stress
    Explanation
    Stress is described as the result of pressures or demands that exceed a person's ability to cope with them. It is a state of mental or emotional strain caused by challenging situations or events. When individuals are faced with more responsibilities, expectations, or difficulties than they can handle, they may experience stress. This can manifest in various physical, emotional, and cognitive symptoms, impacting their overall well-being. Stress management techniques and coping strategies are often employed to help individuals effectively respond to and reduce stress levels.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    ______________________________________  are quiet and nervous, and often depend too much on oothers.  They are not interested in challenging themselves and can get into trouble if the dive moves bbeyond their comfort level.

    Correct Answer
    anxious-dependent
    anxious-dependents
    Explanation
    The given answer is "anxious-dependent" and "anxious-dependents". This answer accurately describes individuals who are quiet, nervous, and rely heavily on others. These individuals are not interested in pushing themselves and can face difficulties if the situation becomes too challenging for them. The use of the hyphen in "anxious-dependent" and "anxious-dependents" suggests that these two words are connected and should be considered together as a single term.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    ________________  are confident and seem capable, but can be risk-takers, who get themselves into trouble by pushing their skill or comfort zone.

    Correct Answer
    competitive-perfectionist
    competitive-perfectionists
    Explanation
    Competitive-perfectionists are individuals who display confidence and capability in their actions. However, they tend to be risk-takers who often find themselves in trouble by pushing their skills or comfort zones. The use of the plural form "competitive-perfectionists" suggests that this behavior is not limited to just one person but can be observed in multiple individuals who possess similar traits.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    List some signs of stress.

  • 8. 

    When should divers fill out a waiver / assumption of risk form?

    • A.

      Before getting in the water

    • B.

      Before the boat leaves the dock

    • C.

      On the way to the dive site

    • D.

      After the dive

    Correct Answer
    B. Before the boat leaves the dock
    Explanation
    Divers should fill out a waiver / assumption of risk form before the boat leaves the dock. This is because the form is a legal document that releases the dive operator from liability in case of any accidents or injuries during the dive. By filling out the form before the boat leaves the dock, the dive operator ensures that all divers acknowledge and accept the risks involved in diving and agree to release the operator from any liability. Filling out the form after the dive or on the way to the dive site would not be appropriate as it would not provide sufficient time for the divers to read and understand the terms and conditions stated in the form.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If questioned by family and friends at an accident scene, let them know what you think may have hhappened to the victim.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. In an accident scene, it is not appropriate to speculate or provide opinions on what may have happened to the victim. It is crucial to prioritize the victim's safety and well-being by immediately contacting emergency services and allowing trained professionals to assess and provide necessary medical assistance. Speculating about the cause or extent of the victim's injuries can potentially hinder the appropriate response and delay necessary medical attention.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Failure to rescue or to do all that you can do during a rescue could be legally actionable.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Failure to rescue or to do all that you can do during a rescue can be legally actionable because it implies negligence or a breach of duty. When someone is in a position to help or save another person and fails to do so, they may be held legally responsible for any harm or injury that occurs as a result. This is particularly relevant in situations where a duty of care exists, such as in the case of healthcare professionals or lifeguards. Failing to fulfill this duty can lead to legal consequences.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    It is essential to find a missing diver as quickly as possible.  To make this possible, the most important first step is to establish a reliable ______.

    • A.

      Last-seen point

    • B.

      Risk assessment

    • C.

      Witness

    • D.

      Map

    Correct Answer
    A. Last-seen point
    Explanation
    In order to find a missing diver quickly, it is crucial to establish a reliable last-seen point. This point serves as a starting point for search and rescue operations, providing valuable information about the diver's initial location. By determining the last-seen point accurately, search teams can focus their efforts on a specific area, increasing the chances of locating the missing diver promptly. Without this crucial piece of information, the search area would be much larger and more difficult to cover effectively.

    • C.

      Stop, change direction, take out line

    Correct Answer
    B. OK
    Explanation
    The given conversation suggests that the line tender is giving instructions to the diver. The line tender first tells the diver to come to the surface, to which the diver responds with "OK" indicating that they understand and will comply. The line tender then instructs the diver to stop, change direction, and take out the line. However, the question only asks for the diver's response to the initial instruction, which is "OK".

    Explanation

    • C.

      OK

    Correct Answer
    A. Come to surface
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "come to surface" because the line tender is instructing the diver to ascend to the surface of the water. This instruction is given so that the diver can stop what they are doing, change direction, and remove the line. The response "OK" indicates that the diver understands and acknowledges the instruction.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    D. OK
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "OK". In this context, "OK" is a response to the previous statements made by the diver to the line tender. It indicates that the diver has found the object of their search and everything is fine. It could also be understood as a confirmation or acknowledgement of the situation.

    • D.

      Need more line

    Correct Answer
    D. Need more line
    Explanation
    The diver is communicating with the line tender and informing them that they need more line. This suggests that the diver has found the object they were searching for, but requires additional line to complete their task. The response "OK" indicates that the line tender acknowledges the request and is willing to provide the necessary assistance.

    • D.

      Need more line

    Correct Answer
    C. Have found object of search
    Explanation
    The answer "Have found object of search" is the correct answer because it directly addresses the main objective of the diver's task, which is to locate the object they were searching for. The previous statements in the conversation indicate that the diver is in need of assistance and more line, but it is the statement "Have found object of search" that confirms that the diver has successfully completed their task.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Diver to Line Tender: Four or more tugs

    • A.

      Have found object of search

    • B.

      Need help immediately

    • C.

      Need more line

    • D.

      OK

    Correct Answer
    B. Need help immediately
    Explanation
    The phrase "Need help immediately" indicates that the diver is in a critical situation and requires immediate assistance. This suggests that there is an urgent problem or danger that the diver cannot handle alone and needs help from others. The phrase implies that the situation is serious and requires prompt action to ensure the safety and well-being of the diver.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    The minimum recommended amount of rope to conduct a search pattern.

    • A.

      50 feet

    • B.

      75 feet

    • C.

      100 feet

    • D.

      200 feet

    Correct Answer
    C. 100 feet
    Explanation
    The minimum recommended amount of rope to conduct a search pattern is 100 feet. This length allows for enough flexibility and range of movement to effectively cover the search area. With 100 feet of rope, searchers can create a systematic pattern and cover a significant distance while maintaining communication and safety. Having a longer rope may provide even more coverage, but 100 feet is considered the minimum necessary for an efficient search operation.
