    If you are suffering from hypothermia you need to decrease your body temperature.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If you are suffering from hypothermia, you actually need to increase your body temperature, not decrease it. Hypothermia is a condition where your body loses heat faster than it can produce it, causing a dangerously low body temperature. To treat hypothermia, it is important to warm the body gradually using methods such as removing wet clothing, covering with blankets, and applying warm packs. Therefore, the statement that you need to decrease your body temperature if you have hypothermia is false.

Prototypes are used to gather feedback, make improvements, and refine the product before it goes into production. Therefore, the given statement is false.
