    • B.

      Unsymptomatic

    • C.

      Unsympathetic

    Correct Answer
    A. Asymptomatic 
    Explanation
    Asymptomatic refers to individuals who do not display any symptoms of a particular disease. This means that they may be infected with the disease, but they do not show any signs or experience any symptoms associated with it. "Unsymptomatic" and "unsympathetic" are not correct because they do not accurately describe individuals who do not have symptoms of a disease.

    --------------------------------------- is the first country in which the virus appeared.

    Correct Answer
    China
    Explanation
    China is the correct answer because it is widely recognized as the first country where the virus, presumably referring to the COVID-19 pandemic, appeared. The outbreak was first identified in the city of Wuhan, Hubei province, in December 2019. The virus then spread rapidly within China and later to other parts of the world, leading to a global pandemic. China's prompt response, including implementing strict measures and sharing information with the international community, has been crucial in understanding and combating the virus.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 11, 2020. A pandemic refers to a global outbreak of a disease that affects a large number of people in multiple countries or continents. COVID-19 had already spread to numerous countries by March 2020, leading to widespread illness and death, which met the criteria for a pandemic.

      Affect

    • B.

      Effect

    • C.

      Infect

    Correct Answer
    C. Infect
    Explanation
    COVID-19 can infect humans. This is because COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus that spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets. When an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, the virus can be transmitted to others who come into close contact with them. Once the virus enters the body, it can attach to and invade human cells, leading to infection and the development of COVID-19 symptoms.

      Pandemic

    Correct Answer
    C. Pandemic
    Explanation
    A pandemic is the most widespread among the given options. An epidemic refers to the occurrence of cases of a disease in a community or region that is clearly in excess of normal expectancy. An outbreak refers to the sudden increase in cases of a disease in a specific geographic area or population. On the other hand, a pandemic is an epidemic that has spread over several countries or continents, affecting a large number of people. Therefore, a pandemic is the correct answer as it indicates the highest level of spread and impact.

      Hypnotic

    • C.

      Stenotic

    Correct Answer
    A. Zootonic
    Explanation
    Zootonic is the correct answer because it refers to a disease that can be transmitted from animals to humans. The term "zootonic" is derived from the words "zoo" (meaning animal) and "tonic" (meaning relating to disease). Therefore, zootonic accurately describes a disease that can be passed between animals and humans.
