      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Any injury that is badly inflamed.
    B. Any injury with shooting or throbbing pain.
    C. Any injury that you do not understand or recognise.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to select any injury that is badly inflamed, any injury with shooting or throbbing pain, and any injury that you do not understand or recognize. These guidelines suggest that if an injury is badly inflamed, it may require medical attention as inflammation can indicate an infection or other underlying issue. Injuries with shooting or throbbing pain may also be a sign of a more severe problem that needs to be evaluated by a medical professional. Additionally, if you do not understand or recognize the injury, it is best to seek medical advice to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.

    Many sports injuries are directly caused by poor footwear and clothing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that many sports injuries are caused by poor footwear and clothing. However, this statement is false. While inappropriate footwear and clothing can contribute to sports injuries, they are not the sole or primary cause.

Therefore, it is incorrect to say that many sports injuries are directly caused by poor footwear and clothing.

    The cooling-down phase is believed to reduce the risk of muscular soreness which may occur the day after an exercise session and reduce the risk of fainting or collapse after such a session.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The cooling-down phase after exercise is believed to have several benefits. One of these is reducing the risk of muscular soreness that can occur the day after a workout. This is because cooling down helps to gradually lower the heart rate and body temperature, allowing the muscles to relax and recover more effectively. Additionally, cooling down can also help to prevent fainting or collapse after exercise by allowing the cardiovascular system to gradually return to its normal state. Therefore, the statement that the cooling-down phase reduces the risk of muscular soreness and fainting or collapse after exercise is true.
