This word encompasses the idea of a vast and organized system that includes everything that exists. Therefore, "cosm" accurately represents the concept of the world, order, and universe.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    For questions 11-20 fill in the blank with the correct answer.The  medical examiner examined the __________ at the scene of the crime and ruled it a homicide.

    Correct Answer
    corpse, cardiologist, civilian
    Explanation
    The medical examiner examined the corpse at the scene of the crime and ruled it a homicide. A cardiologist is a doctor who specializes in the heart and would not be involved in examining a crime scene. A civilian refers to a person who is not a member of the military or police force, and they would not have the expertise to determine if a death was a homicide. Therefore, the correct answer is "corpse."

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The measurement around the circle has a __________ of 30 cm.

    Correct Answer
    computer, cognition, circumference
    Explanation
    The given answer is "circumference". The question is asking for the measurement around the circle, which is specifically referred to as the circumference. The other two options, "computer" and "cognition", are unrelated and do not make sense in the context of the question.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The ____________ listened to my heart with a sthethoscope.

    Correct Answer
    civilian, cardiologist, democrat
    Explanation
    A cardiologist is a medical professional who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases. They are trained to use a stethoscope to listen to the sounds of the heart, such as the heartbeat and any abnormal sounds that may indicate a potential issue. In this context, it is appropriate to say that a cardiologist listened to my heart with a stethoscope. The terms "civilian" and "democrat" are unrelated to this situation and do not make sense in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    The ancient Myan ___________ had their own calendar system.

    Correct Answer
    corpse, recliner, civilization
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "civilization". The word "ancient" suggests that the subject being referred to is from a long time ago. The words "corpse" and "recliner" do not fit in the context of having their own calendar system. However, "civilization" is a more appropriate choice as ancient civilizations often developed their own systems to keep track of time, such as the Mayans who had a complex calendar system.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The ________ of husband and wife is sacred and special.

    Correct Answer
    cognition, cosmic, continuity
    Explanation
    The word "sacred" suggests that the blank should be filled with a word that conveys a deep and meaningful connection. "Cognition" refers to the mental processes of acquiring knowledge and understanding, which does not fit the context. "Cosmic" refers to the universe and its vastness, which is not relevant to the relationship between a husband and wife. "Continuity" refers to the state of being continuous or uninterrupted, implying a lasting and unbroken bond, making it the most suitable choice for completing the sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    We must use ___________ skills in order to pass the comprehensive exam.

    Correct Answer
    cognitive, cosmic, computer
    Explanation
    In order to pass the comprehensive exam, we need to utilize cognitive skills, which involve critical thinking, problem-solving, and decision-making abilities. These skills are essential for understanding and analyzing complex information. Cosmic and computer skills are not relevant in this context as they do not directly contribute to passing the exam. Cosmic skills refer to knowledge or abilities related to the universe or cosmos, while computer skills involve proficiency in using technology and software.
