    The correct answer is "DEGREE OF VISCOSTICY; HOW THICK OR THIN A FLUID IS". This answer accurately defines the term "consistency" as it relates to the viscosity of a fluid. Viscosity refers to the resistance of a fluid to flow, with thicker fluids having higher viscosity and thinner fluids having lower viscosity. Therefore, the degree of viscosity determines how thick or thin a fluid is, which aligns with the concept of consistency.

    The word "abrupt" is defined as something happening suddenly or unexpectedly. Therefore, the correct answer "sudden" aligns with this definition as it means happening quickly and without warning. The other options, "to draw together or become smaller" and "brief to the point," do not accurately capture the meaning of "abrupt" and are therefore incorrect.

    The word "affect" refers to the appearance of observable emotions. It is used to describe how someone's emotions are expressed or displayed outwardly. This can include facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice. It is different from "effect," which refers to the result or consequence of something. In this context, "extreme tiredness, exhaustion" and "excrete or expel urine" do not relate to the meaning of "affect."

It implies the process of taking in food or drink into the body in order to break it down and absorb its nutrients. The other options provided in the question, such as "reddened, swollen, warm, often tender" and "a means to obtain entry, or a means of approach," do not accurately define the word "ingest" in the context given.

In this context, the word is used to describe the action of sticking or holding fast to something.

    Correct Answer
    A. ROUNDED INWARD
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ROUNDED INWARD" because the term "concave" refers to a surface or shape that curves inward, creating a hollow or depression. It is the opposite of convex, which bulges outward. Therefore, "rounded inward" accurately describes the characteristic of a concave shape.

    Correct Answer
    C. DIFFICULT TO AROUS
    Explanation
    The word "lethargic" means lacking energy or enthusiasm, feeling sluggish or slow.

    Correct Answer
    A. THE UNDERLYING REASON

    A. REDDNED OR RUDDY APPEARANCE
    Explanation
    The word "flushed" typically refers to a reddened or ruddy appearance of the skin. This can occur when blood vessels in the skin dilate, causing increased blood flow and resulting in a reddish hue. It is a common physiological response to emotions such as embarrassment, anger, or physical exertion. The other options, "closed or obstructed" and "continuous," do not accurately describe the meaning of "flushed."

    • B.

      PRESS DOWNWARD

    Correct Answer
    B. INPLACE, UNHARMED
    Explanation
    The word "intact" means something that is not damaged or altered in any way. The answer "inplace, unharmed" accurately captures this meaning as both words imply that something remains unchanged or undamaged. "Inplace" suggests that something is in its original position or state, while "unharmed" indicates that it has not been harmed or damaged. Therefore, this answer correctly reflects the meaning of the word "intact".

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    INCIDENCE

    • A.

      OCCURANCE

    • B.

      WORSENING

    • C.

      TOOL OR PEICE OR EQUIPMENT

    Correct Answer
    A. OCCURANCE
    Explanation
    The word "occurrence" is the correct answer because it is the most suitable word to describe an event or incident happening. The other options do not fit the context as well. "Incidence" refers to the rate or frequency of something happening, not the actual event itself. "Worsening" means the situation is getting worse, not necessarily an event happening. "Tool or piece or equipment" is unrelated to the given words and does not make sense in this context. Therefore, "occurrence" is the most appropriate choice.

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    B. THE DISTANCE ACROSS THE CENTER OF AN OBJECT
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "THE DISTANCE ACROSS THE CENTER OF AN OBJECT". This is because the term "diameter" refers to the measurement of a straight line passing through the center of a circle or sphere, connecting two points on its circumference. It is a fundamental concept in geometry and is used to calculate various properties of circular objects, such as circumference and area.

    Correct Answer
    B. TO MAKE A LIQUED LESS CONCENTRATED
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "TO MAKE A LIQUID LESS CONCENTRATED." The word "dilute" means to reduce the concentration, strength, or purity of a substance by adding a liquid to it. In this context, it refers to making a liquid less concentrated by adding more of a solvent or diluent.

    C. TO ENLARGE OR EXPAND
    Explanation
    The word "dilate" means to enlarge or expand.

This is because the term "depth" refers to the distance or measurement from the top or surface of something to the bottom or lowest point.
