    Explanation
    If you see broken or faulty machinery, the best course of action is to report it immediately to the instructor.

Being nice to your friend and not saying anything may not be effective in preventing them from hurting themselves. Playing around with your friend might encourage their behavior and potentially lead to more harm. Therefore, the best course of action would be to tell the teacher, as they are in a position of authority and can intervene to ensure your friend's safety.

    If you dont have the correct tool that you need ( chisel) it is okay to use one that might work well too (screw driver)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because using a screwdriver instead of a chisel may not work well. While it is acceptable to use alternative tools in some situations, it is important to note that different tools are designed for different purposes. A chisel has a sharp edge specifically designed for cutting and shaping materials, whereas a screwdriver is primarily designed for driving screws. Therefore, using a screwdriver as a substitute for a chisel may not yield the desired results and could potentially damage the material or the tool itself.
