    Is the statement true or false. In the early 1400's, George Washington became the first commander of Chief to the United States of America? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because George Washington did not become the first commander of Chief to the United States of America in the early 1400s. George Washington was actually the first President of the United States, serving from 1789 to 1797. The United States was not even established as a country until 1776, so it would have been impossible for George Washington to hold that position in the early 1400s.

      Arteries

    Correct Answer
    C. Veins
    Explanation
    Veins are responsible for carrying blood back to the heart. Unlike arteries, veins have valves that prevent the backflow of blood and help in the efficient return of blood to the heart. The contraction of muscles surrounding the veins also assists in pushing the blood towards the heart. This process, known as venous return, ensures that deoxygenated blood is returned to the heart to be pumped to the lungs for oxygenation.

    Which of the following is not a primary colour?

    • A.

      Yellow

    • B.

      Green

    • C.

      Red

    • D.

      Blue

    Correct Answer
    B. Green
    Explanation
    Green is not a primary color because it can be created by mixing two primary colors, namely blue and yellow. Primary colors are the basic colors that cannot be created by mixing other colors together. In the RGB color model, red, green, and blue are considered primary colors, while in the subtractive color model (used in printing and painting), the primary colors are cyan, magenta, and yellow. Therefore, green does not meet the criteria of being a primary color.
