    Melanin produce...

    • A.

      Microcyte

    • B.

      Hemocyte

    • C.

      Oocyte

    • D.

      Melanocyte

    Correct Answer
    D. Melanocyte
    Explanation
    Melanocytes are the cells responsible for producing melanin, the pigment that gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes. These cells are found in the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin, and are responsible for protecting the skin from the harmful effects of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Melanocytes produce and distribute melanin to nearby skin cells, which helps to absorb UV radiation and prevent damage to the DNA in skin cells. This explanation is supported by the fact that the other options, microcyte, hemocyte, and oocyte, do not have any role in melanin production.

      Binder

    • B.

      Mitosis

    • C.

      Water

    • D.

      Moisturizer

    Correct Answer

    Which of the following is NOT a sign of inflammation?

    • A.

      A cold spot on the skin

    • B.

      Redness

    • C.

      Swelling

    • D.

      Pain

    Correct Answer
    A. A cold spot on the skin
    Explanation
    A cold spot on the skin is not a sign of inflammation because inflammation is characterized by redness, swelling, and pain. Inflammation is a response of the immune system to injury or infection, and it is typically accompanied by increased blood flow to the affected area, resulting in redness and warmth. Swelling occurs due to the accumulation of fluid and immune cells in the area. Pain is often present due to the release of chemicals that stimulate nerve endings. However, a cold spot on the skin would suggest reduced blood flow, which is not consistent with inflammation.

    What can OSHA or state board inspectors do if a salon does not have MSDSs available for review during regular business hours?

    • A.

      Immediately shut the salon down.

    • B.

      Issue a fine to the salon.

    • C.

      Immediately revoke the salon manager's license.

    • D.

      Arrest and imprison the salon manager.

    Correct Answer
    B. Issue a fine to the salon.
    Explanation
    If a salon does not have MSDSs (Material Safety Data Sheets) available for review during regular business hours, OSHA or state board inspectors have the authority to issue a fine to the salon. MSDSs provide important information about the potential hazards of chemicals used in the salon, and their absence could pose a risk to the health and safety of employees and customers. By issuing a fine, the inspectors can enforce compliance with regulations and encourage the salon to rectify the situation promptly. However, shutting down the salon immediately or revoking the salon manager's license would be disproportionate measures for this violation. Arrest and imprisonment are not within the authority of OSHA or state board inspectors in this scenario.
