    The statement is true because statistically speaking, the number of deaths caused by drowning in bathtubs is much higher than the number of deaths caused by shark attacks.

Additionally, shark attacks are relatively rare events that happen in specific locations, while bathtubs are present in every household and accidents can happen more frequently.

    Owning a pet can help prevent allergies and asthma. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    Owning a pet can help prevent allergies and asthma because exposure to pets at an early age can strengthen the immune system and reduce the risk of developing allergies and asthma. This is known as the "hygiene hypothesis," which suggests that exposure to certain allergens and microbes early in life can train the immune system to better tolerate them. Studies have shown that children growing up with pets have a lower risk of developing allergies and asthma compared to those who do not have pets.
