By starting with the pull, the swimmer is able to generate forward momentum. Breathing is then incorporated to ensure proper oxygen intake. The kick provides additional propulsion, and the glide allows for a moment of rest and streamlined movement before starting the sequence again. This sequence maximizes the swimmer's efficiency and speed in Breaststroke.

    Smokeless tobacco can cause receding gums, which can eventually make your teeth fall out.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Smokeless tobacco contains harmful chemicals that can irritate and damage the gums. This irritation can lead to inflammation and recession of the gums, causing them to pull away from the teeth. As the gums recede, the roots of the teeth become exposed, making them more susceptible to decay and infection. If left untreated, this can eventually lead to tooth loss. Therefore, it is true that smokeless tobacco can cause receding gums and ultimately result in teeth falling out.
