    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Varicose veins are indeed an abnormal swelling of veins, typically occurring in the legs. This condition is characterized by enlarged, twisted, and bulging veins that are often blue or purple in color. Varicose veins can cause discomfort, pain, and aching in the affected area, and they are commonly caused by weakened valves in the veins that allow blood to flow backward and pool. Treatment options for varicose veins include lifestyle changes, compression stockings, and in severe cases, surgical interventions.

    Correct Answer
    C. Prolonged standing
    Explanation
    Prolonged standing can weaken the valves in the veins, leading to varicose veins. When a person stands for long periods of time, the blood in the veins has to work against gravity to flow back up to the heart. This increased pressure can cause the valves to become weak or damaged, resulting in the pooling of blood and the formation of varicose veins.
