    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which one of the given statements is the most grammatically correct option:

    • A.

      I have saw her for several visits.

    • B.

      I has seen her for several visits.

    • C.

      I have seen her for several visits.

    • D.

      I will seen her for several visits.

    Correct Answer
    C. I have seen her for several visits.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I have seen her for several visits." This option uses the correct verb tense, "have seen," which is the present perfect tense. The verb "saw" in the first option is incorrect as it is the past tense, and "has seen" in the second option is also incorrect as it uses the wrong subject-verb agreement. The last option, "I will seen her for several visits," is also incorrect as it uses the wrong verb tense, "will seen," instead of "will see."

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which is the most grammatically correct option: He continues to have bronchospastic symptoms although he _____________ near the factory for a year and a half.

    • A.

      Is not been

    • B.

      Was not been

    • C.

      Has not been

    • D.

      Have not been

    Correct Answer
    C. Has not been
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "has not been." This is the most grammatically correct option because it uses the present perfect tense to indicate an action that started in the past and is still ongoing. The phrase "has not been" indicates that the person has not been near the factory for a year and a half, which explains why they continue to have bronchospastic symptoms.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Choose the correct option : He is alert (A) and well oriented and has normal pupils (B) there is no ataxia (C) the neck is nontender (D) the lungs are clear (E) and the heart has a regular sinus rhythm without murmurs (F) the pacemaker is palpable in the left pectoral region (G)

    • A.

      Commas at A and E and periods at C,D and G

    • B.

      Periods at B and G

    • C.

      Periods at C,D,F and comma at A

    • D.

      Comma at E and periods at B,C,D,F and G.

    Correct Answer
    D. Comma at E and periods at B,C,D,F and G.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Comma at E and periods at B,C,D,F and G." This is because the sentence structure suggests that each phrase after the commas and periods is a separate statement or observation. A comma is used at E to separate the statement about the lungs being clear from the rest of the sentence. Periods are used at B, C, D, F, and G to indicate the end of each separate statement or observation.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Choose the correct option: The patient complains of pain and swelling ______________ the left knee.

    • A.

      On

    • B.

      In

    • C.

      Of

    • D.

      At

    Correct Answer
    A. On
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "on". This is because when we talk about pain and swelling in a specific body part, we use the preposition "on". For example, we say "on the left knee" to indicate that the pain and swelling are located specifically on the knee.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Choose the incorrect sentence:

    • A.

      The patient states that he has not noticed any significant help.

    • B.

      The patient states that he has not noticed any significance help.

    Correct Answer
    B. The patient states that he has not noticed any significance help.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The patient states that he has not noticed any significance help." This sentence is incorrect because it uses the word "significance" instead of "significant." The correct sentence should be "The patient states that he has not noticed any significant help."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which is the correct option:Some of the patient’s tumor _______(has, have) spread  at ______  (their, its) edges.

    • A.

      Has, their

    • B.

      Has, its

    • C.

      Have, their

    • D.

      Have, its

    Correct Answer
    B. Has, its
    Explanation
    The correct option is "has, its". In this sentence, "Some of the patient's tumor" is a singular subject, so it requires the singular verb "has". Additionally, "its" is the correct possessive pronoun to refer to the tumor's edges.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Choose the incorrect sentence:

    • A.

      The patient states that he has seen at this pain clinic and was given a lumbar epidural injection one week ago.

    • B.

      The patient states that he was seen at this pain clinic and was given a lumbar epidural injection one week ago.

    Correct Answer
    A. The patient states that he has seen at this pain clinic and was given a lumbar epidural injection one week ago.
    Explanation
    The incorrect sentence is "The patient states that he has seen at this pain clinic and was given a lumbar epidural injection one week ago." This sentence is incorrect because the verb "seen" should be replaced with "was seen" to maintain consistency in verb tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which is the correct option:Each of these medications ___________(has, have) been prescribed for________ ( their, its) therapeutic effects.

    • A.

      Has, their

    • B.

      Has, its

    • C.

      Have, their

    • D.

      Have, its

    Correct Answer
    C. Have, their
    Explanation
    The correct option is "have, their". In this sentence, "Each of these medications" is the subject, which is plural. Therefore, the verb "have" should be used instead of "has". Additionally, "their" is used to refer to the plural subject "medications".

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Choose the incorrect sentence:

    • A.

      He has again being informed that an implant stimulator was recommended.

    • B.

      He has again been informed that an implant stimulator was recommended.

    Correct Answer
    A. He has again being informed that an implant stimulator was recommended.
    Explanation
    The sentence "He has again being informed that an implant stimulator was recommended" is incorrect because it uses the incorrect form of the verb "be". The correct form should be "been" instead of "being". The correct sentence should be "He has again been informed that an implant stimulator was recommended."

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Choose the correct option :This elderly female was on Tonocard (A) Cardizem (B) Lasix (C) digoxin (D) and Darvocet (E) she had no oxygen in the home (F) and there was no one to oversee her medications (G) she did quite well on Thursday and Friday (H) but yesterday began getting more short of breath.

    • A.

      Commas at A,B,C,D,F and H

    • B.

      Commas at A,B,C,D,F and period at E and G

    • C.

      Period at E and comma at F

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Commas at A,B,C,D,F and period at E and G
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Commas at A,B,C,D,F and period at E and G" because the given sentence contains a list of medications (A, B, C, and D) which should be separated by commas. Additionally, there is a statement about the lack of oxygen in the home (F) which should also be separated by a comma. Lastly, the sentence mentions "Darvocet (E)" and "oversee her medications (G)" which are two separate ideas and should be separated by a period.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Choose the correct option in the given sentences:

    • A.

      On exam, she has a recent range of motion but a moderately severe hallux valgus to her left toe.

    • B.

      On exam, she has a decent range of motion but a moderately severe hallux valgus to her left toe.

    Correct Answer
    B. On exam, she has a decent range of motion but a moderately severe hallux valgus to her left toe.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "On exam, she has a decent range of motion but a moderately severe hallux valgus to her left toe." This answer accurately describes the situation where the person being examined has a good range of motion but also has a moderately severe hallux valgus in their left toe.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Choose the correct option:There was a moderate amount of yellowish (A) purulent (B) appearingleucorrhea (C)

    • A.

      Comma at A, hyphen at B and period at (C)

    • B.

      Hyphen at A, comma at B and period at (C)

    Correct Answer
    A. Comma at A, hyphen at B and period at (C)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Comma at A, hyphen at B and period at (C)". This is because a comma is used to separate items in a list, and in this case, it is separating the different punctuation marks at A, B, and C. A hyphen is used to join words or parts of words together, and in this case, it is joining the words "yellowish" and "purulent". A period is used to indicate the end of a sentence or a complete thought, and in this case, it is indicating the end of the sentence after "leucorrhea".

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Choose the incorrect sentence:

    • A.

      He is going for pain clinic again for further assessment.

    • B.

      He is going to pain clinic again for further assessment.

    Correct Answer
    A. He is going for pain clinic again for further assessment.
    Explanation
    The correct sentence is "He is going to pain clinic again for further assessment." The incorrect sentence uses the preposition "for" instead of "to" before "pain clinic." The correct preposition to use in this context is "to" because it indicates the destination or purpose of someone's action. Therefore, the sentence should be "He is going to pain clinic again for further assessment."

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Choose the option to punctuate the sentence correctly:She tells me that (A) slit (B) lamp exam shows no pathology in the cornea (C)anterior chamber (D) or lens.

    • A.

      Comma at (A) (C) and (D)

    • B.

      Comma at (B) (C) and (D)

    • C.

      Comma at (C) and (D) and hyphen at (B)

    • D.

      Comma at (C) and (D) and colon at B

    Correct Answer
    C. Comma at (C) and (D) and hyphen at (B)
    Explanation
    The sentence is listing different parts of the eye: the cornea, anterior chamber, and lens. To separate these items, commas should be used. In addition, the word "slit-lamp" is a compound adjective describing the exam, so a hyphen should be used to connect the two words. Therefore, the correct punctuation is a comma at (C) and (D) and a hyphen at (B).

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Choose the correct option from the given sentences:

    • A.

      The patient is having some pain along the medial aspect of his left knee.

    • B.

      The patient is having some pain around the medial aspect of his left knee.

    • C.

      The patient is having some pain inside the medial aspect of his left knee.

    Correct Answer
    A. The patient is having some pain along the medial aspect of his left knee.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The patient is having some pain along the medial aspect of his left knee." This is the correct option because it accurately describes the location of the pain, stating that it is along the medial aspect of the left knee. The other options describe the pain as being around or inside the medial aspect, which may not accurately convey the exact location of the pain.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Choose the correct option from the given sentences:

    • A.

      He does not involve in any heaviest activity, pulling, pushing, or straining.

    • B.

      He does not involve in any heavier activity, pulling, pushing, or straining.

    • C.

      He does not involve in any heavy activity, pulling, pushing, or straining.

    Correct Answer
    C. He does not involve in any heavy activity, pulling, pushing, or straining.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "He does not involve in any heavy activity, pulling, pushing, or straining." This sentence uses the correct adjective form "heavy" to describe the noun "activity." The other options use incorrect forms of the adjective, either "heaviest" or "heavier."

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Choose the option to correctly punctuate the sentence:I started the patient on Dilantin 200 mg per day (A) (approximately 4 mg/kg perday(B) ) (C) and I have told the mother that (D) this would be for 6 months (E) trial period.

    • A.

      Comma at (A) (B) (D) and hyphen at (E)

    • B.

      Comma at (B) (C) (D) and (E)

    • C.

      Comma at (C) and apostrophe at (E)

    • D.

      Comma at (A) (C) and hyphen at (E)

    Correct Answer
    C. Comma at (C) and apostrophe at (E)
    Explanation
    The sentence is correctly punctuated with a comma at (C) and an apostrophe at (E). The comma at (C) is used to separate the introductory phrase "I started the patient on Dilantin 200 mg per day" from the main clause "and I have told the mother that this would be for 6 months trial period." The apostrophe at (E) is used to indicate possession, showing that the 6 months trial period belongs to the mother.

    Rate this question:

    Choose the correctly punctuated sentence:

    • A.

      When the patient turned about 12 she started having nausea, and vomiting which began about four days ago.

    • B.

      When the patient turned about 12 she started having nausea and vomiting, which began about four days ago.

    • C.

      When the patient turned about 12, she started having nausea and vomiting which began about four days ago.

    • D.

      When, the patient turned about 12 she started having nausea and vomiting which began about four days ago.

    Correct Answer
    C. When the patient turned about 12, she started having nausea and vomiting which began about four days ago.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "When the patient turned about 12, she started having nausea and vomiting which began about four days ago." This is the correct answer because it uses a comma to separate the introductory phrase "When the patient turned about 12" from the main clause "she started having nausea and vomiting." Additionally, it correctly uses a comma before the relative pronoun "which" to indicate that the following clause is nonessential information.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Choose the correct option:

    • A.

      I stressed again with him that I find no evidence of AIDS or a pre-AIDS-type illness, and I hope I reassured him situationally to decrease his anxiety.

    • B.

      I stressed again with him that I find no evidence of AIDS or a pre-AIDS-type illness, and I hope I reassured him sufficiently to decrease his anxiety.

    Correct Answer
    B. I stressed again with him that I find no evidence of AIDS or a pre-AIDS-type illness, and I hope I reassured him sufficiently to decrease his anxiety.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I stressed again with him that I find no evidence of AIDS or a pre-AIDS-type illness, and I hope I reassured him sufficiently to decrease his anxiety." This option is correct because it uses the word "sufficiently" which means to a satisfactory degree or extent. It implies that the speaker hopes to have provided enough reassurance to decrease the person's anxiety.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Choose the correct option:

    • A.

      She was started on calcitonin and vitamin D complex in addition to all her calcium supplements.

    • B.

      She was started on calcitonin and vitamin D complex in addition to oral calcium supplements.

    • C.

      She was started on calcitonin and vitamin D complex in addition to total calcium supplements.

    Correct Answer
    A. She was started on calcitonin and vitamin D complex in addition to all her calcium supplements.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She was started on calcitonin and vitamin D complex in addition to all her calcium supplements." This option states that the patient was prescribed calcitonin and vitamin D complex along with her existing calcium supplements. The phrase "in addition to all her calcium supplements" indicates that the patient was already taking calcium supplements before starting the new medication regimen.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Choose the correctly punctuated sentence:

    • A.

      She vomits, in addition if she eats spicy food.

    • B.

      She vomits, in addition, if she eats spicy food.

    • C.

      She vomits in addition, if she eats spicy food.

    • D.

      She vomits in addition if, she eats spicy food.

    Correct Answer
    B. She vomits, in addition, if she eats spicy food.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She vomits, in addition, if she eats spicy food." This sentence is correctly punctuated because it uses commas to separate the phrase "in addition" from the rest of the sentence. The first comma indicates a pause after "in addition," and the second comma is used before the conditional clause "if she eats spicy food." This punctuation helps to clarify the meaning of the sentence and make it easier to read and understand.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Choose the correct option:

    • A.

      This was tried for about three months, and did not help.

    • C.

      This was tried for about, three months and did not help.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. This was tried for about three months and did not help.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "This was tried for about three months and did not help." This sentence is grammatically correct and makes sense. It states that something was tried for a specific duration of time (about three months) and that it did not provide any assistance or benefit. The other options either have unnecessary punctuation or incorrect sentence structure.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Choose the correctly punctuated sentence:

    • A.

      In addition, she has had vomiting, almost every day.

    • B.

      In addition she has had vomiting, almost every day.

    • C.

      In addition she has had vomiting almost, every day.

    • D.

      In addition, she has had vomiting almost every day.

    Correct Answer
    D. In addition, she has had vomiting almost every day.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "In addition, she has had vomiting almost every day." This sentence is correctly punctuated because it uses a comma to separate the introductory phrase "In addition" from the main clause "she has had vomiting almost every day." The other options either lack a comma or have misplaced commas, which makes them incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    Choose the correct option in the given sentences:

    • A.

      It is a dull aching that occasionally seems to give out in him.

    • B.

      It is a dull aching that occasionally seems to give out on him.

    Correct Answer
    B. It is a dull aching that occasionally seems to give out on him.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It is a dull aching that occasionally seems to give out on him." In this sentence, the phrase "give out on him" is the correct idiom to use. "Give out" means to fail or stop working properly. In this context, it suggests that the dull aching occasionally becomes more intense or unbearable for him.

      She states that she vomits “phlegm,” and sometimes vomits yellow bile which tastes bitter.

    • D.

      She states that she vomits “phlegm”, and sometimes vomits yellow bile which tastes bitter.

    Correct Answer
    A. She states that she vomits “phlegm” and sometimes vomits yellow bile which tastes bitter.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She states that she vomits 'phlegm' and sometimes vomits yellow bile which tastes bitter." This sentence is correctly punctuated because the quotation marks around the word "phlegm" are used to indicate direct speech or a quote. The comma after "phlegm" is not needed because there is no need for a pause in this sentence.
