Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Accreation means:

    • A. 

      Flood Zone

    • B. 

      Warning

    • C. 

      Land Buildup

    • D. 

      Edible Algae

    Correct Answer
    C. Land Buildup
    Explanation
    Accretion refers to the process of land buildup, typically occurring through the deposition of sediment or other materials. It involves the gradual accumulation of soil, sand, or rocks, leading to the expansion of land areas. This can happen naturally, such as in coastal areas where sediment is carried by water and deposited along the shoreline, or artificially through human interventions like land reclamation projects. In both cases, the result is the gradual growth or buildup of land over time.

    Correct Answer
    C. Gradually Narrow
    Explanation
    The word "attenuate" means to gradually narrow or reduce in size, quantity, or intensity. It does not mean cobweb, cloud, or comb. Therefore, the correct answer is "gradually narrow".

    Heat island effect means:

    • A. 

      Caught For Sport

    • B. 

      Feeds On Animals

    • C. 

      Higher Urban Temperatures

    • D. 

      Banned Insecticide

    Correct Answer
    C. Higher Urban Temperatures
    Explanation
    The term "heat island effect" refers to the phenomenon where urban areas experience higher temperatures compared to the surrounding rural areas. This occurs due to the concentration of buildings, pavement, and other heat-absorbing surfaces in cities, which absorb and re-emit heat, creating a localized increase in temperature. The lack of vegetation and green spaces in urban areas also contributes to this effect by reducing the cooling effect of evapotranspiration. The higher urban temperatures can have various impacts on the environment, human health, and energy consumption.

    Special waste means:

    • A. 

      Electric Capacity

    • B. 

      Household Hazardous Waste

    • C. 

      Public Water Supply

    • D. 

      Electric Supplier

    Correct Answer
    B. Household Hazardous Waste
    Explanation
    Special waste refers to waste materials that are potentially harmful to human health or the environment. Household hazardous waste specifically refers to waste generated in households that contains substances that can be toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. This can include items such as cleaning products, pesticides, batteries, and certain electronics. Proper disposal of household hazardous waste is important to prevent pollution and protect public health.

    Albinism means:

    • A. 

      Phosphate Group

    • B. 

      Energy Coin

    • C. 

      No Pigment

    • D. 

      Roots

    Correct Answer
    C. No Pigment
    Explanation
    Albinism refers to a genetic condition characterized by the absence or lack of pigment in the skin, hair, and eyes. People with albinism often have very pale or white skin, hair, and eye color due to the absence of melanin, the pigment responsible for determining these characteristics. This condition can also result in vision problems, such as reduced visual acuity and sensitivity to light. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is "No Pigment," as it accurately describes the absence of pigment in individuals with albinism.

    Irreversible effect means:

    • A. 

      Reverse

    • B. 

      Easily Repair

    • C. 

      Cannot Repair

    • D. 

      Pollutant Trap

    Correct Answer
    C. Cannot Repair
    Explanation
    Irreversible effect means that the damage or impact caused by something cannot be repaired or undone. In other words, once the effect has occurred, it cannot be reversed or easily fixed. This implies that the consequences are permanent and cannot be undone or repaired.

    Hypolimnion means:

    • A. 

      Bottom Waters

    • B. 

      Surface Waters

    • C. 

      Likes Water

    • D. 

      Water Exchange

    Correct Answer
    A. Bottom Waters
    Explanation
    Hypolimnion refers to the bottom waters of a lake or a reservoir. It is the layer of water that lies beneath the thermocline, which is a zone of rapid temperature change. The hypolimnion is typically colder and denser than the surface waters and experiences little to no mixing with the upper layers. This layer often contains higher concentrations of nutrients and organic matter, and plays a crucial role in the overall ecology and circulation of the water body.

    C. Preservative
    Explanation
    Formaldehyde is a chemical compound commonly used as a preservative. It is used to prevent the growth of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms in various products, such as cosmetics, vaccines, and embalming fluids. It works by inhibiting the activity of enzymes and proteins that are necessary for the survival and reproduction of these microorganisms. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is "Preservative."

    Correct Answer
    C. Water Flow Aid
    Explanation
    Baffle means a device or structure that is used to control or regulate the flow of water. It helps to redirect or slow down the flow of water, preventing excessive turbulence or erosion. In this context, baffle is used as a water flow aid, assisting in managing the movement of water in a controlled manner.

      Chlorine Measurement

    • B. 

      Grinding Down By Friction

    • C. 

      Sound Measurement

    • D. 

      Non-Attainment Area

    Correct Answer
    B. Grinding Down By Friction
    Explanation
    Attrition refers to the process of grinding down or wearing away a material through friction. It involves the gradual reduction of size or quantity of a substance by rubbing or scraping it against a harder surface. This term is commonly used in industries such as manufacturing and mining to describe the wearing down of equipment or materials over time. In this context, attrition is used metaphorically to describe the physical action of grinding down by friction. Therefore, the correct answer is "Grinding Down By Friction".

    • D. 

      Soft Metal

    Correct Answer
    C. Trapped Vapor
    Explanation
    Headspace refers to the space or area above a liquid or substance where vapor or gas is trapped. It is commonly used in the context of containers or bottles, where the headspace is the empty space between the liquid and the top of the container. This trapped vapor can be important in various applications, such as in the food and beverage industry for preserving freshness and preventing spoilage.

    Air-mass thunderstorm means:

    • A. 

      Hot Air

    • B. 

      Channel

    • C. 

      Cold Front

    • D. 

      Discharge

    Correct Answer
    A. Hot Air
    Explanation
    An air-mass thunderstorm refers to a localized storm that forms due to the heating of the air near the Earth's surface. As the sun heats the ground, the air above it becomes hot and rises rapidly. This upward movement of hot air creates an updraft, which can lead to the formation of cumulus clouds and eventually thunderstorms. Therefore, the presence of hot air is the defining characteristic of an air-mass thunderstorm.

    Feedlot means:

    • A. 

      Drilling Arm

    • B. 

      Intensive Feeding Area

    • C. 

      Peat Deposit

    • D. 

      Dense Clay

    Correct Answer
    B. Intensive Feeding Area
    Explanation
    A feedlot is an area where livestock, such as cattle, are kept and fed intensively. It is a confined space where animals are provided with a high-energy diet to promote rapid growth. This term is commonly used in the agricultural industry to refer to a specific area designated for intensive feeding of animals. The other options provided in the question, such as drilling arm, peat deposit, and dense clay, do not have any connection to the concept of a feedlot.
