Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Congener is what?

    • A.

      Toxic Dose

    • B.

      Brain Tumor

    • C.

      Computer Device

    • D.

      Related Chemical

    Correct Answer
    D. Related Chemical
    Explanation
    Congener refers to a related chemical. In the context of this question, it is implied that the term "congener" is being used in relation to chemicals. Therefore, the correct answer is "Related Chemical." It is important to note that without further context or information, it is difficult to provide a more specific explanation regarding the term "congener."

    What is Weibull model made out of?

    • A.

      Dose-Response Model

    • B.

      Fluid Flow Model

    • C.

      Population Growth Model

    • D.

      Cancer Rate Model

    Correct Answer
    A. Dose-Response Model
    Explanation
    The Weibull model is a statistical model commonly used in reliability engineering to analyze the failure rates of systems. It is particularly useful for modeling the time-to-failure of a component or system. The model is based on the dose-response concept, which relates the effect of a stimulus (dose) on a biological system (response). In this case, the dose refers to the stress or load applied to the system, and the response is the failure time. Therefore, the Weibull model is made out of the dose-response model.

    What can be used to make a Codex Alimentarius?

    • A.

      Poisoned Papers

    • B.

      Frog-Produced Toxin

    • C.

      Food Standards

    • D.

      Disease Catalog

    Correct Answer
    C. Food Standards
    Explanation
    A Codex Alimentarius is a collection of internationally recognized food standards, guidelines, and codes of practice. It is used to ensure the safety, quality, and fairness of food trade. Therefore, the correct answer is "Food Standards" as they are the essential component for making a Codex Alimentarius. Poisoned Papers, Frog-Produced Toxin, and Disease Catalog do not align with the purpose of creating a Codex Alimentarius.

    Which of these is Clastogen?

    • A.

      Paralytic

    • B.

      Chromosome Breaker

    • C.

      Cause Of Cataracts

    • D.

      Emetic

    Correct Answer
    B. Chromosome Breaker
    Explanation
    A clastogen is a substance or agent that causes breaks or rearrangements in chromosomes, leading to genetic mutations. Chromosome breakers specifically refer to substances that cause breaks in chromosomes. Therefore, the correct answer is "Chromosome Breaker" as it accurately describes a clastogen's role in causing chromosome damage.

    Miticide means:

    • A.

      Herbicide

    • B.

      Airborne Pollutant

    • C.

      Mite Killer

    • D.

      Dirty Water

    Correct Answer
    C. Mite Killer
    Explanation
    Miticide refers to a substance or product used to kill or control mites. Mites are tiny arachnids that can infest plants, animals, and humans, causing various problems and diseases. Therefore, a miticide is specifically designed to target and eliminate mites, making "Mite Killer" the correct answer. "Herbicide" is used to kill weeds, "Airborne Pollutant" refers to harmful substances in the air, and "Dirty Water" indicates contaminated or impure water, which are not relevant to the definition of miticide.

    • A.

      Nerve Damage

    • B.

      Toxic Waste

    • C.

      Kidney Failure

    • D.

      Lung Disease

    Correct Answer
    D. Lung Disease
    Explanation
    Bagassosis is a lung disease caused by the inhalation of dust from moldy sugarcane. It primarily affects individuals working in sugarcane mills or those exposed to moldy sugarcane. The symptoms of bagassosis include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. Therefore, lung disease is the correct answer as it accurately represents the condition associated with bagassosis.

    What is the meaning of Chromatid?

    • A.

      Chromosome Part

    • B.

      Medical Device

    • C.

      Chromium Poisoning

    • D.

      Tiny Bacteria

    Correct Answer
    A. Chromosome Part
    Explanation
    A chromatid is a part of a chromosome. During cell division, each chromosome duplicates itself, resulting in two identical sister chromatids that are held together by a structure called the centromere. These sister chromatids contain the same genetic information and are eventually separated during cell division to form two new cells. Therefore, the correct answer is "Chromosome Part".

    • D.

      Liver Irritation

    Correct Answer
    A. Blood Supply Deficiency
    Explanation
    Ischemia refers to a condition characterized by a deficiency in blood supply to a particular organ or tissue. This can lead to inadequate oxygen and nutrient supply, resulting in damage or dysfunction of the affected area. Therefore, the correct answer is "Blood Supply Deficiency."

    Which one is correct for Itai-itai disease?

    • A.

      Cadmium-Induced Illness

    • B.

      Parasitic Response

    • C.

      Lung Failure

    • D.

      Pineapple Poisoning

    Correct Answer
    A. Cadmium-Induced Illness
    Explanation
    Cadmium-Induced Illness is the correct answer for Itai-itai disease. Itai-itai disease is a condition caused by long-term exposure to cadmium, a toxic heavy metal. It primarily affects the bones and kidneys, causing severe pain and deformities in the affected individuals. The name "Itai-itai" comes from the Japanese expression for "ouch-ouch" which reflects the excruciating pain experienced by the patients. The disease is primarily associated with industrial pollution and contaminated water sources.

    • D.

      Arrests Organism Growth

    Correct Answer
    D. Arrests Organism Growth
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Arrests Organism Growth". This answer is correct because "biostatic" refers to something that stops or inhibits the growth or activity of living organisms. It does not necessarily heal or measure organisms, and it is not related to freezing them.

    Ultrafine Particle means:

    • A.

      Safe Particle

    • B.

      Smaller Than 1 Meter

    • C.

      Smaller Than 100 Nm

    • D.

      Smaller Than 1 Nm

    Correct Answer
    C. Smaller Than 100 Nm
    Explanation
    Ultrafine particles refer to particles that have a size smaller than 100 nanometers. These particles are extremely small and can be found in various environments, including indoor and outdoor air. Due to their small size, ultrafine particles have unique properties and behavior compared to larger particles. They can penetrate deep into the respiratory system and have the potential to cause adverse health effects. Therefore, it is important to monitor and regulate the levels of ultrafine particles in order to maintain a safe and healthy environment.

    • C.

      Blue Skin Discoloration

    • D.

      Jaundice

    Correct Answer
    C. Blue Skin Discoloration
    Explanation
    Cyanosis refers to a condition where the skin appears bluish in color. This occurs when there is a lack of oxygen in the blood, leading to poor circulation or respiratory problems. The bluish discoloration is particularly noticeable in areas with less pigmentation, such as the lips, nail beds, and mucous membranes. It is an important clinical sign that indicates a potential lack of oxygen in the body and should be evaluated promptly by a healthcare professional.
