    Use your logic to answer the questions below!

  • 3. 

    Either my shoes or your coat  _____________ always on the floor.

    Correct Answer
    is
    Explanation
    The given sentence is a compound subject sentence, where "my shoes" and "your coat" are connected by the conjunction "or". In this type of sentence, the verb should agree with the subject closest to it, which in this case is "your coat". Therefore, the correct verb form to use is "is".

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Neither the Minister nor his colleagues ____________ given an explanation for this.

    Correct Answer
    have
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "have" because when using the construction "neither...nor," the verb should agree with the noun closest to it. In this case, the noun "colleagues" is plural, so the verb should also be plural. Therefore, "have" is the correct form of the verb to use in this sentence.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Neither of the contestants ____________ able to win a decisive victory.

    Correct Answer
    was
    Explanation
    The sentence is in the past tense and uses the word "neither," indicating that both contestants did not win a decisive victory. The verb "was" agrees with the singular subject "neither," indicating that neither contestant was able to win.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Patient presenting with skin rashes  ______ shown remarkable improvement.

    Correct Answer
    has
    Explanation
    The word "has" is the correct answer because it agrees with the singular subject "patient." In this sentence, the patient is the one who is presenting with skin rashes, so we use the singular form of the verb "to have," which is "has." This verb choice indicates that the patient has experienced significant improvement in their skin condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The patient states that his symptoms have significantly improved since his anti-depressant medications ______ discontinued.

    Correct Answer
    were
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "were". In this sentence, the patient is referring to multiple anti-depressant medications that have been discontinued. The word "were" is the past tense of the verb "to be" and is used to indicate that something existed or happened in the past. Therefore, "were" is the appropriate form of the verb to use in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The tenaculum __________ was bleeding

    • A.

      Cite

    • B.

      Site

      Cyte

    • D.

      Sight

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Site
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "site". In this context, "site" refers to a specific location or place. The sentence suggests that the bleeding was occurring at a particular site. The other options, "cite", "cyte", and "sight", do not fit the sentence and are unrelated to bleeding or a specific location. Therefore, the correct answer is "site".

    Correct Answer
    A. Skin
    Explanation
    The doctor's statement "Warm to touch. No redness or rash noted" indicates that the examination is related to the skin. This is because the doctor is observing the temperature and appearance of the patient's skin, specifically noting the absence of redness or rash. Therefore, this information would be reported in the section of the report that pertains to the skin.

    6. Duration of the current abdominal pain is not mentioned, but it can be inferred as it is described as "constant" and "sharp". Therefore, it can be considered as an additional coding element.

Their role is crucial in diagnosing and monitoring various medical conditions.

    Which of the following statement is true?

    • A.

      When there is no index term for subacute, you code the condition to chronic.

    • B.

      When a condition is described as acute and chronic, the chronic condition is sequenced first.

    • C.

      If a condition is described as acute and chronic and there are separate subentries in the Index, code both acute and chronic conditions.

    • D.

      When a condition is described as acute and chronic, code the acute condition only.

    Correct Answer
    C. If a condition is described as acute and chronic and there are separate subentries in the Index, code both acute and chronic conditions.
    Explanation
    When a condition is described as acute and chronic and there are separate subentries in the Index, it is necessary to code both the acute and chronic conditions. This means that both the acute and chronic aspects of the condition should be documented and coded separately, as they are considered distinct entities. This ensures accurate representation of the patient's condition and supports appropriate medical coding and billing.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Which of the following describes a late effect?

    • A.

      Weakness secondary to donating blood

    • B.

      Fever following an immunization

    • D.

      Dysphagia due to an old cerebrovascular accident

    Correct Answer
    D. Dysphagia due to an old cerebrovascular accident
    Explanation
    A late effect refers to a condition or symptom that occurs after the acute phase of an illness or injury. In this case, dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) is described as a late effect of an old cerebrovascular accident (stroke). This means that the individual experienced a stroke in the past, and now they are experiencing dysphagia as a result of the stroke. The other options do not describe late effects, as they either refer to immediate or short-term effects of a specific event or condition.

    • C.

      Patients admitted with HIV-related illness would normally have two codes assigned

    • D.

      The HIV-related illness is sequenced first, followed by 0

    Correct Answer
    C. Patients admitted with HIV-related illness would normally have two codes assigned
    Explanation
    Patients admitted with HIV-related illness would normally have two codes assigned because HIV-related illnesses often have specific codes assigned to them in addition to the code for HIV itself. This is done to provide more detailed information about the specific illness or condition that the patient is experiencing. By assigning two codes, healthcare providers can accurately document and track the different aspects of the patient's condition, which is important for proper diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of HIV-related illnesses.

      Bursitis

    • C.

      Gouty arthritis

    • D.

      Sciatica

    Correct Answer
    C. Gouty arthritis
    Explanation
    Gouty arthritis is the correct answer because it is characterized by inflammation of the joints caused by excessive accumulation of uric acid. Gout occurs when there is an overproduction or underexcretion of uric acid, leading to the formation of urate crystals in the joints. This causes intense pain, swelling, and redness in the affected joint. Other options like osteoarthritis, bursitis, and sciatica do not specifically involve uric acid accumulation as the primary cause of joint inflammation.
