    When seated, the height of the keyboard should be

    • A.

      A foot above your knees — It helps keep the wrists straight.

    • B.

      Wherever your lap happens to be

    • C.

      Approximately at your elbow height

    Correct Answer
    C. Approximately at your elbow height
    Explanation
    The correct answer is approximately at your elbow height. This is because when the keyboard is positioned at elbow height, it allows for a neutral and comfortable position for the wrists, reducing the risk of strain or injury. Keeping the wrists straight is important for maintaining proper alignment and preventing discomfort or repetitive strain injuries. Therefore, positioning the keyboard at elbow height is the most ergonomic and recommended option.

    Which of the following activities involve repetitive motion?

    • A.

      Typing on a keyboard.

      Looking back and forth between the monitor and the source

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the activities mentioned in the options involve repetitive motion. Typing on a keyboard requires repeated pressing of keys, moving and clicking the mouse involves repetitive hand and finger movements, and looking back and forth between the monitor and the source involves repetitive eye movements. Therefore, all of the activities mentioned involve repetitive motion.

  • 4. 

    The chair should be adjusted to at least provide support to what part of the back?

    • A.

      The shoulder blades.

    • B.

      The lumbar region.

    • C.

      The middle of the back.

    Correct Answer
    B. The lumbar region.
    Explanation
    The lumbar region is the correct answer because it refers to the lower part of the back, specifically the area between the ribs and the pelvis. Adjusting the chair to provide support to the lumbar region is important for maintaining proper posture and reducing strain on the lower back. This support helps to align the spine in its natural curve and prevents slouching or hunching forward, which can lead to discomfort and potential back problems.

    It is best to position your computer monitor so that:

    • A.

      You have to lean forward to clearly see the text

    • B.

      You can clearly read the text without leaning forward, twisting your neck, or looking too far upwards

    • C.

      You can see overhead lights reflected on the screen

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. You can clearly read the text without leaning forward, twisting your neck, or looking too far upwards
    Explanation
    The best position for a computer monitor is when you can clearly read the text without straining your neck or eyes. Leaning forward, twisting your neck, or looking too far upwards can cause discomfort and potential health issues. Seeing overhead lights reflected on the screen is not ideal as it can create glare and make the text harder to read. Therefore, the correct answer is that the monitor should be positioned in a way that allows for comfortable and clear reading without any unnecessary strain.
