    Even though it is legal to use surveillance equipment in the UK, rival companies involved in industrial espionage use it on a large scale.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement claims that rival companies involved in industrial espionage use surveillance equipment on a large scale, which implies that it is legal for them to do so.

    An ordinary short wave radio can pick up some transmissions, depending on the transmitter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An ordinary short wave radio has the capability to receive certain transmissions, but it is dependent on the transmitter. This means that the radio can pick up some transmissions, but not all of them. Therefore, the statement "An ordinary short wave radio can pick up some transmissions, depending on the transmitter" is true.

    A sonic ear is also known as electronic ear or bionic ear.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a sonic ear is not known as an electronic ear or bionic ear. A sonic ear is actually a device that amplifies sound for individuals with hearing impairments, while an electronic ear or bionic ear refers to a more advanced device that directly stimulates the auditory nerve to restore hearing. Therefore, they are not interchangeable terms.

    A wall amplifier can penetrate over ______ of solid concrete, making the average internal wall seem like rice paper.

    • A.

      10 cm

    • B.

      20 cm

    • C.

      30 cm

    Correct Answer
    C. 30 cm
    Explanation
    A wall amplifier is a powerful device that can transmit sound waves through solid concrete. It has the ability to penetrate up to 30 cm of solid concrete, which is a significant thickness. This means that even a thick internal wall made of concrete would appear to be as thin and fragile as rice paper when the sound is amplified.

    Frequency detectors are small hand held devices that are affordable to someone wanting to seek out that type of work.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that frequency detectors are small, affordable handheld devices. This implies that someone who wants to engage in frequency detection work can easily acquire these devices without spending a large amount of money. Therefore, the statement is true.

    As a private investigator, you will not need to attend court as a witness.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    As a private investigator, it is possible that you may need to attend court as a witness. Private investigators often gather evidence and information that may be used in legal proceedings. If their findings are relevant to a case, they may be called upon to testify in court to provide their expertise and support their findings. Therefore, the statement that private investigators will not need to attend court as a witness is false.

    __________ may measure pulse rates, body temperature, blood pressure or pitch and pattern change.

    • A.

      Polygraphs

    • B.

      Ulta -sound

    • C.

      Reflex graphs

    Correct Answer
    A. Polygraphs
    Explanation
    Polygraphs are devices that are commonly used to measure physiological responses such as pulse rates, body temperature, blood pressure, and changes in pitch and pattern. They are often used in lie detection tests, where the individual's physiological responses are monitored and analyzed to determine if they are telling the truth or not. Therefore, polygraphs are the most suitable option for the given question.

      Recording

    Correct Answer
    C. Recording
    Explanation
    Recording devices, often voice activated, can be left in place of a transmitter bug and retrieved later for analysis. This suggests that recording devices are a type of device that can be used as a substitute for a transmitter bug. They are often voice activated, meaning they can start recording when they detect sound. These devices can be left in a certain location and then retrieved at a later time for analysis.
