Infectious, Non Infectious Diseases, & Disabilities


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Infectious diseases are caused by tiny organisms called __________

    • A.

      Pathogens

    • B.

      Parasites

    • C.

      Bacteria

    Correct Answer
    A. Pathogens
    Explanation
    Infectious diseases are caused by tiny organisms known as pathogens. Pathogens can include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. These organisms invade the body and can cause illness or disease. Bacteria and parasites are types of pathogens, but not all infectious diseases are caused by them. Therefore, the correct answer is pathogens.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    _____________ are organisms that live in or on another organism and drive nourishment from it

    • A.

      Pathogens

    • B.

      Parasites

    Correct Answer
    B. Parasites
    Explanation
    Parasites are organisms that live in or on another organism and obtain nourishment from it. Unlike pathogens, which cause diseases, parasites do not necessarily cause harm to their host. Instead, they rely on the host for survival and reproduction. This relationship can range from being mildly detrimental to the host's health to being fatal in some cases. Parasites have evolved various mechanisms to attach themselves to their host, such as hooks, suckers, or adhesive secretions. They can be found in different forms, including worms, ticks, lice, and fleas.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    After 15 1/2 hours one bacterium can have multiplied into more than 4 _________ bacteria

    • A.

      Thousand

    • B.

      Million

    • C.

      Billion

    • D.

      Trillion

    Correct Answer
    C. Billion
    Explanation
    After 15 1/2 hours, one bacterium can have multiplied into more than 4 billion bacteria. This exponential growth occurs due to the rapid division of bacteria, where each bacterium can divide into two new bacteria within a certain time frame. Therefore, over time, the number of bacteria increases exponentially, resulting in billions of bacteria in just 15 1/2 hours.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    _______ are 1/2 to 1/100 the size of the smallest bacterium

    • A.

      Viruses

    • B.

      Ricketts

    • C.

      Protozoans

    • D.

      Fungi

    Correct Answer
    A. Viruses
    Explanation
    Viruses are significantly smaller in size compared to the smallest bacterium. They can range from being 1/2 to 1/100 the size of a bacterium. This size difference is due to the unique structure and nature of viruses, which are essentially genetic material enclosed in a protein coat. Unlike bacteria, viruses cannot survive or reproduce on their own and require a host cell to carry out their life cycle.
