    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Children are more likely to be exposed to lead's harmful effects than adults because they are more vulnerable to its toxic effects. Children's bodies absorb lead more easily, and their developing brains and nervous systems are particularly sensitive to its effects. Additionally, children are more likely to come into contact with lead through sources such as lead-based paint, contaminated soil, or water pipes. This increased exposure puts them at a higher risk for lead poisoning and its associated health problems.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Lead can be found in old pipes because in the past, lead was commonly used in plumbing systems. Over time, the lead from these pipes can leach into the water supply, posing a health risk if consumed. Therefore, it is true that lead can be found in old pipes.

    Lead can be found in_______________

    • A.

      Old paint

    • B.

      Contaminated soil

    • C.

      Drinking water

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All the above
    Explanation
    Lead can be found in old paint, contaminated soil, and drinking water. Lead-based paint was commonly used in older homes and buildings, and when it deteriorates, it can release lead dust or chips. Contaminated soil can occur near industries or areas with heavy traffic, where lead-based products or exhaust fumes have been released. Lead can also enter drinking water through corroded pipes or plumbing fixtures. Therefore, all the options mentioned - old paint, contaminated soil, and drinking water - can contain lead.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Washing your hands is an effective way to decrease the risk of lead poisoning because lead can be present on surfaces, especially those that may have come into contact with lead-based paint or contaminated soil. By washing your hands regularly, you can remove any lead particles that may have been picked up from these sources and prevent them from entering your body through ingestion or inhalation. Therefore, it is true that washing your hands can help decrease the risk of lead poisoning.
