### Which statement defines the term flexibility?

• A.

Physical activity with sweat

• B.

The range of movement possible at a joint

• C.

Both A & B

• D.

None

B. The range of movement possible at a joint
Explanation
The term flexibility refers to the range of movement that is possible at a joint. It is a measure of how easily and freely a joint can move through its full range of motion. This includes the ability to stretch and bend without any discomfort or restriction. Physical activity with sweat, on the other hand, is not a definition of flexibility as it does not specifically relate to the range of movement at a joint. Therefore, the correct answer is "The range of movement possible at a joint."

### Which is a correct statement about reaction time?

• A.

Time consumed in a moment

• B.

The time taken to observe

• C.

The time between the presentation of a stimulus and the start of the movement

• D.

None of these

C. The time between the presentation of a stimulus and the start of the movement
Explanation
The correct statement about reaction time is that it refers to the time between the presentation of a stimulus and the start of the movement. This means that reaction time measures the delay between when a person is presented with a stimulus, such as a visual or auditory cue, and when they initiate a response or movement in reaction to that stimulus. It is an important measure in various fields, such as psychology, sports, and driving, as it reflects the speed and efficiency of an individual's cognitive and motor processing.

### Which statement describes a fitness benefit taken from the principle of reversibility?

• A.

• B.

I felt demotivated and left training.

• C.

• D.

None of these

A. Fortunately, I didn’t miss much training due to my injury, but I found that when I did start retraining, I could not do as much physical work.
Explanation
The correct answer describes a fitness benefit taken from the principle of reversibility because it highlights the fact that when the individual stopped training due to injury, they experienced a decrease in their physical abilities. This is in line with the principle of reversibility, which states that if you stop exercising or reduce your training intensity, you will lose the benefits gained from previous training.

Coordination is essential for the precise execution of the jump, including the take-off and landing. Agility is needed to quickly change direction and position during the jump. The phrase "Used to get the height" indicates that these components are utilized in the high jump to achieve greater height.

### Which statement is a possible effect of regular training on the circulatory system?

• A.

Lower blood pressure

• B.

Lower resting heart rate

• C.

Increase in heart rate

• D.

Increase in breathing rate and blood production

B. Lower resting heart rate
Explanation
Regular training can have a positive effect on the circulatory system by strengthening the heart muscle. When the heart is stronger, it can pump blood more efficiently, leading to a lower resting heart rate. A lower resting heart rate indicates that the heart doesn't have to work as hard to supply oxygen and nutrients to the body at rest. This can be beneficial for overall cardiovascular health and can also help to lower blood pressure.
