  • 9.

    • A.

      Milk Chocolate

    • B.

      Dark Chocolate

    • C.

      White Chocolate

    Correct Answer
    C. White Chocolate
    Explanation
    White chocolate is considered the unhealthiest type of chocolate because it contains the highest amount of sugar and the least amount of cocoa solids compared to milk and dark chocolate. It lacks the health benefits associated with cocoa, such as antioxidants and flavonoids. Additionally, white chocolate often contains more additives and less nutritional value than its counterparts. Therefore, consuming white chocolate in excess can lead to weight gain, increased risk of diabetes, and other health issues.

      High in antioxydants

    • C.

      Increased blood flow in body

    • D.

      Muscle growth

    Correct Answer
    D. Muscle growth
    Explanation
    Dark chocolate does not promote muscle growth. While dark chocolate does have health benefits such as promoting healthy memory, being high in antioxidants, and increasing blood flow in the body, it does not directly contribute to muscle growth. Muscle growth is typically associated with exercise and a balanced diet that includes protein and other nutrients specifically targeted towards muscle development.
