    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    There are only four vulnerable or immunocompromised groups in the population.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because there are more than four vulnerable or immunocompromised groups in the population. Vulnerable or immunocompromised groups can include individuals with chronic illnesses, elderly individuals, pregnant women, and individuals with weakened immune systems due to medications or treatments. This means that there are more than just four groups that are at higher risk of developing severe complications from infections or diseases.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is an example of immunocompromised individuals in the population?

    • A.

      Athletes & Professional Fitness Trainers

    • B.

      Food Producers

    • C.

      Cooks and Chefs

    • D.

      Young Children & Allergen Sufferers 

    Correct Answer
    D. Young Children & Allergen Sufferers 
    Explanation
    Young children and allergen sufferers are examples of immunocompromised individuals in the population. This is because their immune systems are not fully developed or are weakened, making them more susceptible to infections and allergic reactions.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What makes food unsafe?

    • A.

      Cooked foods served warm and not hot but has not reached TDZ

    • B.

      FATTOM

    • C.

      Presence of food safety hazards

    • D.

      Cold foods served cold in 4*C

    Correct Answer
    C. Presence of food safety hazards
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Presence of food safety hazards." This means that the main reason why food becomes unsafe is due to the presence of hazards that can contaminate it and cause illness or harm to consumers. These hazards can include biological factors such as bacteria, viruses, or parasites, as well as chemical or physical factors like toxins, allergens, or foreign objects. Ensuring proper food handling, storage, and preparation techniques can help prevent these hazards and maintain food safety.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is FATTOM

    • A.

      Food Acidity Toxicity Temperature Oxygen Moisture

    • B.

      Food Acidity Time Temperature Oxygen Moisture

    • C.

      Food Activity Toxicity Temperature Oxygen Moisture

    • D.

      Food Acidity Temperature Time Organic Moisture

    Correct Answer
    B. Food Acidity Time Temperature Oxygen Moisture
    Explanation
    FATTOM is an acronym used to remember the conditions necessary for bacterial growth in food. The correct answer, "Food Acidity Time Temperature Oxygen Moisture," represents the factors that contribute to the growth of bacteria in food. Acidity, time, temperature, oxygen, and moisture are all important considerations when it comes to food safety and preventing bacterial contamination.

    Bacteria is ubiquitous in nature which grows ever where.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bacteria are indeed ubiquitous in nature, meaning they can be found everywhere. They can be found in soil, water, air, and even on and inside the human body. Bacteria are capable of surviving and thriving in a wide range of environments, including extreme conditions such as hot springs and deep-sea hydrothermal vents. Therefore, it is true that bacteria grow everywhere, making the given answer correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Pathogenic microorganisms in food may not show any signs of spoilage but are hazardous to eat. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Pathogenic microorganisms are harmful bacteria, viruses, or other microorganisms that can cause illness or disease when consumed. These microorganisms may not cause visible signs of spoilage in food, such as odor or discoloration, but they can still be present and pose a health risk if ingested. Therefore, it is important to handle and store food properly to prevent the growth and spread of pathogenic microorganisms.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Spoilage microorganisms can make you sick.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Spoilage microorganisms are different from pathogenic microorganisms. While spoilage microorganisms can cause food to spoil and become unappetizing, they do not typically cause illness or make a person sick. Pathogenic microorganisms, on the other hand, are the ones that can cause foodborne illnesses and make people sick. Therefore, the statement that spoilage microorganisms can make you sick is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Living organisms that is ubiquitous in nature.

    • A.

      Bacteria

    • B.

      Hazzard

    • C.

      Organic

    • D.

      None of the above 

    Correct Answer
    A. Bacteria
    Explanation
    Bacteria are living organisms that are found everywhere in nature. They can be found in soil, water, air, and even in the human body. Bacteria play a crucial role in various ecological processes and are essential for the balance of ecosystems. They can be beneficial, such as in aiding digestion or decomposing organic matter, but they can also be harmful and cause diseases. Due to their ability to adapt and multiply rapidly, bacteria have a significant impact on the environment and human health.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    It is okay to continually abuse food with high temperatures to avoid TDZ.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Continually abusing food with high temperatures is not okay to avoid the Temperature Danger Zone (TDZ). The TDZ refers to the temperature range between 41°F (5°C) and 135°F (57°C) where bacteria can grow rapidly in food. High temperatures can kill bacteria, but it is not a sustainable or safe practice to continuously subject food to high temperatures as it can lead to overcooking, loss of quality, and potential health hazards. It is important to follow proper food handling and storage guidelines to ensure food safety.
