    Correct Answer
    A. A Sticky, Colorless Film Of Germs Or Bacteria That Live On Your Teeth
    Explanation
    Plaque refers to a sticky, colorless film of germs or bacteria that live on your teeth. It is formed when bacteria in the mouth interact with the sugars and starches from the food we consume. If not removed through regular brushing and flossing, plaque can harden into tartar, leading to tooth decay and gum disease. Regular dental hygiene practices such as brushing twice a day and visiting the dentist for professional cleanings can help prevent the buildup of plaque.

    Walking at least 15 minutes a day can help boost my mood?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Walking at least 15 minutes a day can help boost mood because physical activity releases endorphins, which are natural mood elevators. Additionally, walking outdoors exposes individuals to fresh air and sunlight, both of which can improve mood and increase vitamin D levels. Regular exercise also reduces stress and anxiety, promotes better sleep, and enhances overall well-being. Therefore, incorporating a short walk into daily routine can have a positive impact on mood and mental health.

      False 

    Correct Answer
    B. False 
    Explanation
    It is important to schedule regular checkups with a doctor even if one feels healthy because many health conditions may not show any symptoms until they have progressed to a more advanced stage. Regular checkups can help detect any potential health issues early on, allowing for timely intervention and treatment. Therefore, feeling healthy should not be a reason to neglect regular checkups with a doctor.
