Dirt is to CLEANING as DISEASE is to CURING because dirt is something that needs to be cleaned, just like a disease is something that needs to be cured.

C. Neither True or False (No rational argument)

The final statement cannot be determined as true or false based solely on the given information.

The words "decrease" and "reduce" are closest in meaning because they both refer to the act of making something smaller or less in quantity or size. Both words imply a decrease or a lowering of something. In contrast, the other word pairs do not have similar meanings.

Therefore, the correct answer is "decrease and reduce."

After the third bounce, it will reach a height of (2/5) * 50 = 20 centimeters. Finally, after the fourth bounce, it will reach a height of (2/5) * 20 = 8 centimeters.

If we subtract 5 years from the son's current age, we get the son's age five years back, which is 33 years. Therefore, the correct answer is 33.

### Statement: A large number of people in ward X of the city are diagnosed to be suffering from a fatal malaria type.What Courses of action should be taken:.The city municipal authority should take immediate steps to carry out extensive fumigation in ward X. The people in the area should be advised to take steps to avoid mosquito bites

• A.

• B.

Only 2 follows

• C.

Neither I nor II follows

• D.

Both I and II follow

D. Both I and II follow
Explanation
The statement suggests that a large number of people in ward X are suffering from a fatal malaria type. Course of action I states that the city municipal authority should take immediate steps to carry out extensive fumigation in ward X. This action is necessary to eliminate the mosquitoes that are transmitting the malaria and prevent further spread of the disease. Course of action II suggests that the people in the area should be advised to take steps to avoid mosquito bites. This is important because even with fumigation, it is crucial for individuals to protect themselves from mosquito bites to prevent contracting malaria. Therefore, both courses of action are necessary and should be implemented.
