A quiz about Vitamins and Minerals


Questions and Answers
  • 1.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer

    The statement is incorrect. Deficiency of Vitamin B3 (nicotinic acid) does not cause scurvy. Scurvy is caused by a deficiency of Vitamin C. Vitamin B3 deficiency can lead to a condition called pellagra, which is characterized by symptoms such as dermatitis, diarrhea, dementia, and death if left untreated.

    Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Vitamin A is classified as a fat-soluble vitamin because it dissolves in fats and oils, rather than water. This means that it can be stored in the body's fatty tissues and liver for later use. Fat-soluble vitamins, like vitamin A, are absorbed along with dietary fats and are best absorbed when consumed with a source of fat. This allows the body to efficiently utilize and store the vitamin, ensuring that it is available when needed.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. While calcium is important for muscle function, including the heart, a lack of calcium alone does not necessarily result in a weak heart. Other factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and overall health play a significant role in heart strength. Calcium deficiency can lead to various health issues, but it does not directly cause a weak heart.

    Vitamin C can be found in meat.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Vitamin C is primarily found in fruits and vegetables, not in meat. Meat is a good source of other nutrients such as protein and iron, but it does not contain significant amounts of vitamin C. Therefore, the statement that vitamin C can be found in meat is false.

  • 5. 

    If we lack iron,we will produce less haemoglobin.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If we lack iron, our body will produce less haemoglobin. This is because iron is an essential component of haemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body. Without enough iron, our body cannot produce sufficient haemoglobin, leading to a decrease in its production. Therefore, the statement is true.
