    It is ok to use any chopping board in the kitchen for cutting vegetables on

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not okay to use any chopping board in the kitchen for cutting vegetables. Different chopping boards are made from different materials, such as wood, plastic, or glass, and each material has its own properties. Using the wrong chopping board for cutting vegetables can lead to cross-contamination and the transfer of harmful bacteria. For example, wooden chopping boards can absorb liquids and retain bacteria, while plastic chopping boards are easier to clean and sanitize. Therefore, it is important to choose the appropriate chopping board for specific food preparation tasks.

    Electical cords should be kept away from stove-tops, sinks and other equipment

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Electrical cords should be kept away from stove-tops, sinks, and other equipment to prevent potential hazards. Placing cords near heat sources like stove-tops can cause them to melt or catch fire. Similarly, having cords near sinks or other water sources increases the risk of electrocution if they come into contact with water. Additionally, cords near other equipment can get tangled or pulled, leading to damage or accidents. Therefore, it is important to keep electrical cords away from these areas to ensure safety.
