    Can an electricity pass through organs and tissue

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Electricity can pass through organs and tissues because the human body is conductive. The body contains electrolytes, such as salts and minerals, which allow electric current to flow. This conductivity is the reason why electrical signals can travel through the nervous system and why defibrillators can be used to restart the heart. However, it is important to note that the passage of electricity through the body can be dangerous and potentially fatal, depending on the intensity and duration of the current.
