      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    This statement is false because a hotel can fit into multiple categories.

The front office is typically responsible for handling customer inquiries, managing appointments, and providing general assistance, so it is important for it to be adequately staffed based on the needs of the organization.

    E. The standard of accommodation and service which is offered and, in the case of a hotel, the category of customer which it wishes to attract.
    F. The space which is needed to service and maintain the building.
    Explanation
    When planning new buildings or renovating old ones, several factors need to be considered. These include the use density, which refers to the number of people likely to be in a specific area at any given time. This helps determine the appropriate size and layout of different areas in the building. The main traffic lanes and circulation area are also important considerations, as they ensure easy access to all rooms. Additionally, the space requirements within each room must be taken into account to allow for comfortable use of furniture and equipment. The standard of accommodation and service offered, as well as the target customer category, are important for hotels. Finally, the space needed to service and maintain the building is also a crucial factor to consider.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The dimensions of a building grow ultimately from the dimensions of the space available.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the dimensions of a building are solely determined by the dimensions of the available space. However, this is not necessarily true. While the available space may influence the dimensions of a building, other factors such as architectural design, functional requirements, and building regulations also play a significant role in determining the dimensions of a building. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      The eye is most comfortable in uneven lighting.

    • B.

      The eye works at its best when the work is more brightly lit than the surrounding area.

    Correct Answer(s)

    C. The eye is stimulated by contrasts of tone and sparkle.
    Explanation
    The eye works at its best when the work is more brightly lit than the surrounding area because the eye is naturally drawn to bright sources of light. This allows for better visibility and clarity of the work being observed. Additionally, the eye is stimulated by contrasts of tone and sparkle, which means that it is attracted to variations in brightness and texture. This helps to capture the attention of the viewer and enhances the visual experience.

    Prolonged exposure to noise levels excessive to the environment creates:  (Select three)

    • A.

      A degree of mental fatigue.

    • B.

      An effect on the quality and tempo of work.

    • C.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A degree of mental fatigue.
    B. An effect on the quality and tempo of work.
    C. Loss of worktime through sickness, for example, headaches.
    Explanation
    Prolonged exposure to excessive noise levels in the environment can lead to several negative effects. Firstly, it can cause a degree of mental fatigue, as the constant noise can be mentally draining and make it difficult to concentrate and focus. Secondly, it can have an effect on the quality and tempo of work, as the noise can be distracting and disrupt productivity. Lastly, it can result in loss of worktime through sickness, such as headaches, as the noise can cause stress and physical discomfort. Temporary loss of hearing is not mentioned in the explanation.

    The primary colours are red, blue and yellow. The secondary colours are green, orange and violet. The tertiary colours are a mixture of primary and secondary colours, for example, RV—red violet.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the primary colors are indeed red, blue, and yellow. These colors cannot be created by mixing other colors together. On the other hand, the secondary colors, green, orange, and violet, are created by mixing two primary colors together. Lastly, tertiary colors are a combination of primary and secondary colors, such as red-violet. Therefore, the statement that the primary colors are red, blue, and yellow, and the secondary and tertiary colors are a mixture of these, is true.

    Artificial light contains blue, and it is the criterion by which people judge colour.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Artificial light does not contain blue as a criterion for judging color. The statement is incorrect because the criterion for judging color is not solely based on the presence of blue light in artificial light. Color perception is a complex process that involves the interaction of different wavelengths of light and the response of our eyes and brain. While blue light can affect color perception, it is not the only factor that determines how we perceive colors.

    Furnishings are a vital part of the interior of the building and cannot be considered in isolation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Furnishings, such as furniture, curtains, and decorations, play an important role in enhancing the aesthetics and functionality of the interior of a building. They are not meant to be considered separately from the overall design and layout of the space. Instead, furnishings should be carefully chosen and integrated into the overall interior design to create a cohesive and harmonious environment. Therefore, it is true that furnishings cannot be considered in isolation and should be seen as an integral part of the building's interior.
