      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    Water is indeed a compound composed of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. The chemical formula for water is H2O, which indicates that each water molecule contains two hydrogen atoms bonded to one oxygen atom.

Different individuals may have different opinions on what they consider to be the finest ball pen. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Men and Women are two opposite sexes.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Men and women are indeed two opposite sexes. In terms of biological and physiological characteristics, men typically have XY chromosomes, produce sperm, and have male reproductive organs, while women typically have XX chromosomes, produce eggs, and have female reproductive organs. Additionally, men and women often have different physical attributes, hormone levels, and reproductive roles. Therefore, it is accurate to say that men and women are two opposite sexes.

    Water seeks its own level.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Water seeks its own level because of the principle of gravity. Gravity causes water to flow downwards and spread out evenly, seeking the lowest possible level. This is why water in a container will always level itself, regardless of the shape or size of the container. This principle is also the basis for various water-related phenomena, such as the formation of rivers and the way water fills up a glass when poured. Therefore, the statement "Water seeks its own level" is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement makes a generalization about people in show business, implying that they have loose morals. However, it is not fair or accurate to make such a broad generalization about an entire group of people based on their profession. Morality is subjective and varies from person to person, regardless of their occupation. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that people in show business have loose morals.

    Lawyers are liars.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Lawyers are liars" is a generalization and stereotype that is not true. While there may be some lawyers who engage in dishonest practices, it is unfair to label all lawyers as liars. Just like any other profession, there are honest and dishonest individuals within the legal field. Making a blanket statement about all lawyers being liars is inaccurate and unjust. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

They often have characteristics that make them undesirable, such as rapid growth, ability to compete for resources, or difficulty to control. However, they are still classified as plants because they share the same characteristics as other plants, such as having roots, stems, leaves, and the ability to photosynthesize.

    Keeping the sick in a warm room is not necessarily the correct approach. The temperature in the room should be comfortable for the sick person, but it may not always need to be warm. Different illnesses may require different environmental conditions, and some individuals may prefer a cooler room temperature. Therefore, it cannot be stated that the sick should always be kept in a warm room.
