    Correct Answer
    A. Flat on the floor
    Explanation
    When sitting on the floor, it is recommended to have your feet positioned flat on the floor. This ensures proper support and stability for your body.

    Explanation
    The screen should be positioned at eye level to ensure proper ergonomics and reduce strain on the neck and eyes. Placing the screen too high or too low can lead to discomfort and potential health issues such as neck pain or eye strain. By positioning the screen at eye level, it allows for a more comfortable viewing angle and helps maintain a neutral posture while working or using electronic devices.

    Correct Answer
    A. All objects should be within reach without turning
    Explanation
    To prevent injury, it is important to have all objects within reach without turning. This layout ensures that you don't strain or twist your body while reaching for items on your desk. Having everything easily accessible also helps to maintain good posture and reduces the risk of repetitive strain injuries. It is crucial to arrange your desk in a way that promotes a comfortable and ergonomic working environment.

    How should you maintain cables to keep them safe?

    • A.

      Keep them out of the way of walking paths

    • B.

      Tie them together

    • C.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. All of the above
    Explanation
    To maintain cables and keep them safe, it is important to follow two practices mentioned in the options. Firstly, keeping them out of the way of walking paths ensures that people do not trip over them, reducing the risk of accidents and damage to the cables. Secondly, tying them together helps to organize and secure the cables, preventing them from becoming tangled or getting damaged. By implementing both practices, all potential hazards and risks associated with cables can be minimized, ensuring their safety.

    You need to plug in four electrical items, but the power point only has room for 1. What is the safest way to connect these items?

    • A.

      Connect one double adapter to the empty spot, then add two more double adapters on top of this to give 4 empty spots.

    • B.

      Use a power board

    Correct Answer
    B. Use a power board
    Explanation
    Using a power board is the safest way to connect these items because it allows for multiple outlets to be used simultaneously. A power board typically has multiple sockets, which means that each electrical item can be plugged in separately without overloading a single socket. This reduces the risk of overheating or electrical fires that could occur if multiple double adapters are stacked on top of each other in a single power point.

    What position should your arm be in when using the mouse?

    • A.

      Elbow bent, forearm on the desk

    • B.

      Elbow bent, wrist on the desk

    • C.

      Elbow straight, wrist on the desk

    • D.

      Elbow straight, forearm on the desk

    Correct Answer
    A. Elbow bent, forearm on the desk
    Explanation
    When using the mouse, it is recommended to have the elbow bent and the forearm resting on the desk. This position helps to maintain a neutral wrist alignment and reduces strain on the muscles and tendons in the forearm and wrist. It also allows for better support and stability while using the mouse, leading to improved accuracy and reduced risk of repetitive strain injuries.

    What is the recommendation for a safe noise level in an office environment?

    • A.

      30-50 dB

    • B.

      30-60 dB

    • C.

      50-70 dB

    • D.

      70-90 dB

    Correct Answer
    C. 50-70 dB
    Explanation
    The recommendation for a safe noise level in an office environment is 50-70 dB. This range is considered appropriate as it allows for a comfortable working environment without being too loud or too quiet. Noise levels below 50 dB may be too quiet and can cause difficulty in concentration, while levels above 70 dB can be distracting and harmful to hearing. Therefore, maintaining a noise level within the range of 50-70 dB is recommended for a safe and productive office environment.

  • 8. 

    From which direction should light fall?

    • A.

      Front

    • B.

      Side

    • C.

      Back

    Correct Answer
    B. Side
    Explanation
    Light should fall from the side because it helps to create depth and shadows, which can enhance the visual appeal of the subject. When light falls from the front, it tends to flatten the subject, while light from the back can create silhouettes. However, side lighting can add dimension, texture, and drama to the scene, making it a preferred choice in many photography and cinematography setups.
