  • 9. 

    People with weak eyes have higher chances of having a heart attack. True or false?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    There is no direct correlation between weak eyes and the likelihood of having a heart attack. Weak eyesight is usually caused by refractive errors or eye conditions, while heart attacks are primarily caused by factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, obesity, and family history. While some health conditions can affect both the eyes and the heart, weak eyesight alone does not increase the chances of having a heart attack. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    • C.

      People who play sports.

    • D.

      People with high level IQ

    Correct Answer
    A. People who live alone.
    Explanation
    Living alone can contribute to a higher risk of having a heart attack due to various factors. People who live alone may experience higher levels of stress, lack of social support, and unhealthy lifestyle habits such as poor diet and lack of exercise. Additionally, living alone may lead to feelings of loneliness and depression, which are known risk factors for heart disease. Therefore, individuals who live alone are more likely to have a heart attack compared to those who live with a partner or have a strong social support system.
