    Correct Answer
    C. A math term naming the answer in a division question
    Explanation
    The term "quotient" refers to the answer obtained in a division question. In mathematics, when we divide one number by another, the result is called the quotient. It represents the number of times the divisor can be evenly divided into the dividend. For example, in the division problem 10 ÷ 2 = 5, the quotient is 5. Therefore, the best description for the term "quotient" is a math term naming the answer in a division question.

      Recipe

    • D.

      Receipt

    Correct Answer
    A. Subscription
    Explanation
    The word "subscription" is the correct answer because it fits grammatically in the sentence and makes sense in the context. A subscription refers to a regular payment made to receive a specific service or product, such as a magazine or journal. In this case, the nurse has a subscription to the Journal of Nursing Education, indicating that they regularly receive and read the journal. The other options, prescription, recipe, and receipt, do not fit in the context of the sentence and do not make it grammatically correct.

    Correct Answer
    B. The nurse told the family, "I'm sorry, your father has passed away."
    Explanation
    The statement "The nurse told the family, 'I'm sorry, your father has passed away.'" uses a euphemism. Instead of using direct and potentially harsh language such as "your father has died," the nurse softens the blow by using the more gentle phrase "passed away."

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The nurse spoke to my sister and me about our mother's condition." This sentence is grammatically correct because it uses the pronoun "me" as the object of the verb "spoke." When referring to oneself and another person as objects of a verb, the pronoun "me" is used instead of "I."

This means that the patient is in a state of drowsiness or sluggishness, and it takes extra effort to wake them up or get a response from them. The other options mentioned, such as pacing the halls, yelling at the staff, shaking uncontrollably, or not responding to painful stimuli, do not align with the description of being lethargic.
