    What environmentally-harmful substance is found in fluorescent light bulbs?

    • A.

      Carbon Dioxide

    • B.

      Sulfur

    • C.

      Mercury

    • D.

      Methane

    Correct Answer
    C. Mercury
    Explanation
    Mercury is the correct answer because it is a highly toxic substance found in fluorescent light bulbs. When these bulbs break or are improperly disposed of, the mercury can be released into the environment, posing a risk to human health and ecosystems. Mercury pollution can contaminate air, water, and soil, and accumulate in the food chain, leading to serious environmental and health problems. Therefore, it is important to handle and dispose of fluorescent light bulbs properly to minimize the release of mercury into the environment.

  • 4. 

    Approximately how many watts are needed by a standard incandescent light bulb to produce the same amount of light as a 20 watt compact fluorescent light bulb?

    • A.

      40 Watts

    • B.

      45 Watts

    • C.

      65 Watts

    • D.

      75 Watts

    Correct Answer
    D. 75 Watts
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 75 Watts because a standard incandescent light bulb requires more wattage to produce the same amount of light as a compact fluorescent light bulb. Incandescent bulbs are less efficient and convert more energy into heat rather than light, so they require a higher wattage to produce the same level of brightness.
