    ACHOO syndrome, also known as photic sneeze reflex, is a phenomenon where some individuals sneeze when exposed to bright light. This reflex is not triggered by transitioning from light to darkness, but rather by the sudden exposure to bright light.

    Correct Answer
    A. The Sun
    Explanation
    Vitamin D can be obtained from the sun because when our skin is exposed to sunlight, it produces vitamin D. This is because sunlight triggers a reaction in our skin that converts a type of cholesterol into vitamin D. Therefore, spending time in the sun is an important way to ensure our bodies receive an adequate amount of vitamin D.

      Makes Vitamin C

    • B.

      Makes Folic Acid

    • C.

      Destroys Vitamin C

    • D.

      Destroys Folic Acid

    Correct Answer
    D. Destroys Folic Acid
    Explanation
    Sunlight destroys folic acid. Folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin that is sensitive to light. When exposed to sunlight, folic acid molecules can break down and become inactive. This is why it is recommended to store folic acid supplements in a cool, dark place to maintain their potency. Additionally, cooking foods rich in folic acid for too long or at high temperatures can also lead to the degradation of this vitamin. Therefore, it is important to handle and store folic acid-containing substances properly to prevent their destruction by sunlight.
