    • A.

      Barry Scott

    • B.

      Lipids

    • C.

      Protese

    • D.

      Lurpak

    • E.

      Satins

    Correct Answer
    B. Lipids
    Explanation
    Lipids are the biological name for fatty acids. Lipids are a group of organic compounds that are insoluble in water but soluble in organic solvents. They are an essential component of living cells and are involved in various biological processes. Fatty acids are a type of lipid that are important for energy storage, membrane structure, and hormone synthesis. Therefore, Lipids is the correct answer for the biological name of fatty acids.

    What do lipids do that is useful for the body?

    • A.

      Provide energy

    • B.

      Provide a good subsitute for vitamin C

    • C.

      Make you more attractive to the opposite gender

    • D.

      Help with the connections between nurons

    • E.

      Create problems such as heart diesese

    Correct Answer
    A. Provide energy
    Explanation
    Lipids are an essential macronutrient that provides energy to the body. They are a concentrated source of calories and are stored in adipose tissue as a reserve fuel. When the body needs energy, lipids are broken down and converted into ATP, which is used by cells for various metabolic processes. Lipids also play a role in the absorption and transportation of fat-soluble vitamins and provide insulation and protection for organs. Therefore, lipids are crucial for maintaining proper bodily functions and providing the energy needed for daily activities.

    Odd one out? (which one is the saturated fatty acid)

    • A.

      Linolenic acid

    • B.

      Linoleic acid

    • C.

      Palmitoleic acid

    • D.

      Palmitic acid

    • E.

      Arachidonic acid

    Correct Answer
    D. Palmitic acid
    Explanation
    Palmitic acid is the odd one out because it is a saturated fatty acid, while the other options (linolenic acid, linoleic acid, palmitoleic acid, and arachidonic acid) are unsaturated fatty acids. Saturated fatty acids have no double bonds between carbon atoms, while unsaturated fatty acids have one or more double bonds. Therefore, palmitic acid does not fit the pattern of the other options, making it the correct answer.

    Correct Answer
    C. Cholesterol
    Explanation
    Cholesterol is a type of fatty acid that is found in animal tissues and is an important component of cell membranes. It is also used to produce hormones, vitamin D, and bile acids. Cholesterol plays a crucial role in maintaining the structure and function of cells in the body.

    Which foods are most likely to contain fatty acids?

    • A.

      Fruit

      Dairy, meat (especially red)

    Correct Answer
    E. Dairy, meat (especially red)
    Explanation
    Dairy and meat, especially red meat, are most likely to contain fatty acids. Fatty acids are essential nutrients that are primarily found in animal-based foods. Dairy products such as milk, cheese, and butter, as well as meat products like beef, pork, and lamb, are known to be rich sources of fatty acids. Plant-based foods like fruits and vegetables, on the other hand, do not typically contain significant amounts of fatty acids. Water and metal objects are not food items and therefore do not contain fatty acids.
