    Ignition is not a way to extinguish fire because it refers to the process of starting or igniting a fire, not putting it out. The other options, starvation, smothering, and cooling, are all methods used to extinguish fire. Starvation involves removing the fuel source, smothering involves cutting off the fire's oxygen supply, and cooling involves reducing the temperature of the fire to the point where it cannot sustain itself.

    B. Harmful fumes may be inhaled.
    Explanation
    Carbon dioxide extinguishers should not be used in confined spaces because they can displace oxygen, leading to a lack of breathable air. This can result in asphyxiation and potential harm to individuals in the confined space. Inhaling the carbon dioxide fumes can also cause respiratory issues and other health problems.

    • D.

      Run out of the building without warning others of the fire.

    Correct Answer
    A. Raise Fire Emergency Alarm & inform Emergency Control Centre.
    Explanation
    When you discover a fire, the correct course of action is to raise the fire emergency alarm and inform the emergency control center. This is the most important step to ensure the safety of everyone in the building or shop. The fire alarm will alert others to the danger and allow for a quick evacuation. Informing the emergency control center will ensure that professional help is on the way to handle the fire. Using a fire extinguisher without proper knowledge or training can be dangerous and staying in the building without a plan to extinguish the fire puts oneself at risk. Running out of the building without warning others is irresponsible and can endanger the lives of others.

Treating every alarm seriously ensures that individuals are prepared and can evacuate safely in case of an actual fire. It also helps to prevent complacency and ensures that people do not ignore alarms, which could have serious consequences if there is a real emergency. Therefore, the statement is true.
