    At the blending areas, bulk thin or top thin with thinning shears so the main body area blends ____________ with the long furnishings.

    • A.

      Noticeably

    • B.

      Invisibly

    • C.

      Obviously

    Correct Answer
    B. Invisibly
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "invisibly" because when blending the bulk thin or top thin areas with thinning shears, the goal is to make the transition between the main body area and the long furnishings seamless and unnoticeable. The thinning shears are used to remove excess hair and create a smooth, blended effect, resulting in the hair appearing as if it is all one cohesive length. This technique is commonly used to create a natural and polished look.

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    A. Minimize
    Explanation
    When detailing the feet with the foot off the tabletop, using a small pair of shears helps to minimize the risk of accidentally cutting the pads. By using smaller shears, it allows for more precision and control, reducing the chances of making a mistake and cutting the pads. Therefore, the correct answer is "minimize".

    • B.

      In reverse

    • C.

      At 90 degrees

    Correct Answer
    B. In reverse
    Explanation
    Combing the fur forward over the brows with curved shears "in reverse" means combing the fur backwards, away from the brows, before trimming a frame around the eye area. This technique helps to achieve a precise and clean cut, as the fur is combed in the opposite direction of its natural growth.

      More difficult

    • C.

      Less complex

    Correct Answer
    B. More difficult

    The shorter the trim on the body pattern, the more difficult it is to blend the pattern later into the longer furnishings. This means that if the trim on the body pattern is shorter, it will be harder to seamlessly integrate it with the longer furnishings.

      Occiput

    • B.

      Ear tips

    • C.

      Base of ear

    Correct Answer
    B. Ear tips
    Explanation
    To achieve a balanced and uniform look, the coat on the top of the head should be trimmed using thinning shears, stopping just below the level of the ear tips. Trimming the hair to this point ensures that the coat remains neat and tidy without extending too far down the head.

      Tip of the shears

    • B.

      Clippers

    • C.

      Stripping knife

    Correct Answer
    A. Tip of the shears
    Explanation
    When edging, it is important to keep the tip of the shears towards the tips of the ears for safety. This means that the sharp end of the shears should be pointed away from the face and towards the outer edges of the ears. This positioning helps to prevent accidental cuts or injuries to the person or animal being groomed.

      Handle

      Flag

    • C.

      Thick carrot

    Correct Answer
    C. Thick carrot
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "thick carrot" because shaping the tail to resemble a thick carrot would imply that the tail is long and tapered, similar to the shape of a carrot. This suggests that the tail should have a narrow end and gradually become wider towards the base, resembling the shape of a carrot.

      To clear the ground

    • C.

      So it drags on the ground

    Correct Answer
    B. To clear the ground
    Explanation
    The coat on the undercarriage may be trimmed or neatened to clear the ground. This means that the purpose of trimming or neatening the coat is to ensure that it does not touch or drag on the ground. By keeping the coat clear of the ground, it prevents any potential damage or discomfort to the dog while walking or running.

      Furry pads

      Thin pads

    The correct answer is "thick pads". This is because thick pads provide better support and cushioning for the front feet, which are responsible for bearing most of the animal's weight. Additionally, thick pads help the animal maintain stability and grip on various surfaces. The strong nails, which may be slightly exposed, further contribute to the animal's ability to navigate different terrains effectively.
