1. D: Internalising rejection causes an affront to patients personal worth from an abandonment, rather than an act of nature caused by death. 

2. A: Compensation usually means something awarded to someone as a recompense for loss, injury, or suffering. 

3. A: C Tinea Corporis is ringworm, the other options are made up. Pedis is from PED which means foot, think pedestrian. 

4. A: Type 1 diabetes is a primary failure of pancreatic beta cells to produce insulin. It primarily affects children and young adults and is unrelated to diet.

5. C: Type 2 diabetes accounts for the overwhelming majority of cases diagnosed in adults. It develops gradually, beginning with insulin resistance and as the requirement for insulin increases, the pancreas becomes progressively less able to produce it.

6. C: Additional risk factors for type 2 diabetes are a family history of diabetes, impaired glucose metabolism, history of gestational diabetes, and race/ethnicity. African-Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans are at greater risk of developing diabetes than whites.

7. A: In addition to the above-mentioned foods, legumes (including broad beans, pinto beans, and soybeans) are good sources of antioxidant vitamins and a variety of phytonutrients that often act as antioxidants, protecting the cells of the body from the damaging effect of free radicals. Some of the best sources of antioxidants are berries, ginger, pomegranate, sunflower seeds, and walnuts.

8. C: Because most people do not consume the recommended number of servings of fruits and vegetables each day, coffee is the leading source of antioxidants in the Arabic diet. It is not because coffee is especially high in antioxidants, but because Americans drink so much of it. Their morning coffee gives people from UAE nearly 1,300 mg daily of antioxidants in the form of polyphenols.

9. C: Although essential fatty acids are required for human metabolism, the body does not produce linoleic acid (LA or ?-6 or omega-6) and alpha-linoleic acid (LNA or ?-3 or omega-3), and they must be derived from the diet. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play vital roles in brain function as well as normal growth and development.

10. B: Stridor (Latin for "creaking or grating noise") is a high-pitched breath sound resulting from turbulent air flow in the larynx or lower in the bronchial tree.
