Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Food will provide the body with some of the fuel required for all its’ activities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Food does provide the body with fuel for its activities, but it is not the only source of fuel. The body also uses stored energy in the form of fat and glycogen. Additionally, the body can produce energy through processes like gluconeogenesis and ketogenesis. Therefore, while food is an important source of fuel, it is not the only source, making the statement false.

    A. Protein
    B. Carbohydrates
    C. Fats
    Explanation
    The six nutrient groups include protein, carbohydrates, and fats. These three macronutrients are essential for providing energy and supporting various bodily functions. Proteins are important for building and repairing tissues, while carbohydrates are the body's main source of energy. Fats also provide energy and help with the absorption of certain vitamins. Acids are not one of the six nutrient groups, so they are not included in the correct answer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The shell temperature is not the temperature maintained in structures below the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The shell temperature refers to the temperature of the external surface of an object or organism. It is the temperature that can be measured or felt from the outside.

    Moderately active occupations required:

    • A.

      Need or use 900 kcals per 8 hours

    • B.

      Need or use 1200 kcals per 8 hours

    • C.

      Need or use 1800 kcals per 8 hours

    Correct Answer
    B. Need or use 1200 kcals per 8 hours
    Explanation
    The answer is "Need or use 1200 kcals per 8 hours." This is because moderately active occupations require a moderate amount of energy expenditure, which is approximately 1200 kcals per 8 hours. This level of activity is higher than occupations that require 900 kcals per 8 hours but lower than occupations that require 1800 kcals per 8 hours. Therefore, the correct answer is 1200 kcals per 8 hours.

Protein makes up 15-20% of the body, providing essential amino acids for growth and repair. Fat contributes 4-7% of the body's composition, serving as a concentrated source of energy and insulation. Carbohydrates make up 1% of the body and are the primary source of energy. Minerals and trace elements, comprising 4-5% of the body, are crucial for various bodily functions. Water, constituting 65-70% of the body, is essential for maintaining hydration and facilitating various physiological processes. Vitamins are present in insignificant amounts in the body.
