    The two enimies of the microscope are?

    Correct Answer
    Dust, water, and scartches
    Explanation
    Dust, water, and scratches are enemies of the microscope because they can affect the clarity of the image produced by the microscope. Dust particles can obstruct the path of light, leading to a blurry image. Water can cause damage to the delicate components of the microscope, such as the lenses and electrical parts. Scratches on the lenses can distort the image and reduce the overall quality of the microscope's performance. Therefore, it is essential to keep the microscope clean, dry, and free from any potential sources of damage like dust, water, and scratches.

    Correct Answer
    C. Microfiber cloth
    Explanation
    To clean the lens, it is recommended to use a microfiber cloth. Microfiber cloths are specifically designed to clean delicate surfaces without scratching or leaving lint behind. They have fine fibers that can effectively remove dust, smudges, and fingerprints from the lens without causing any damage. Using a sleve, paper towel, or a rag can potentially scratch the lens or leave residue on it, which can affect the quality of the lens and the resulting images. Puding is not a suitable option for cleaning the lens as it is a food item and can leave sticky residue or cause further damage.
