Explanation
The statement "A lifter is not permitted one change of weight on the first attempt of each lift" is false. In weightlifting competitions, lifters are allowed to make one change of weight on their first attempt of each lift. This rule allows lifters to adjust the weight based on their performance during warm-up or if they feel they are not prepared for the initially selected weight.

Rate this question:

• 30.

### Is [ If Lifter gives up on the second or third attempt, his last successful attempt will count for him] true or false?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
If Lifter gives up on the second or third attempt, his last successful attempt will count for him. This statement is true because it implies that if Lifter fails to complete a lift on his second or third attempt, the last successful lift he made will still be considered as his final result. This means that even if he fails to lift the weight on subsequent attempts, he will still receive credit for his last successful lift.
