1.) Certain amino acids are nutritionally essential and so are vitamins. In what
way(s) do they differ?
A.) The amino acids are chemically similar to each other, the vitamins
are chemically diverse.
B.) The daily requirements fir amino acids is in the order of grams, the
requirement for vitamins is milligrams or less.
C.) Amino acids are organic compounds, vitamins are minerals.
D.) All of A, B, and C are correct.
E.) Only two of A, B, and C are correct.
2.) In what way(s) does a solution for total parenteral nutrition (TPN) differ
from one for nasogastric feeding?
A.) TPN solutions contain amino acids, nasogastric solutions contain
B.) TPN solutions contain no fats, nasogastric solutions contain fats.
C.) TPN solutions contain vitamins, nasogastric solutions contain no
D.) All of A, B, and C are correct
E.) Only two of A, B, and C are correct
3.) A healthy child of seven years is eating a balanced diet that includes adequate
amounts of all essential nutrients. It supplies 12 grams of nitrogen per day.
How much nitrogen is she excreting per day?
A.) 12 grams
B.) More than 12 grams
C.) Less than 12 grams
D.) The amount of nitrogen can not be determined without further
4.) Negative nitrogen balance
A.) Can result when the diet is deficient in protein
B.) Means that the amount of nitrogen in urine and feces is less than
that in the diet
C.) Both A and C
D.) Neither A nor C
5.) A man of 100kg wants to lose weight. He therefor starts on an exercise
program that consumes an additional 90kcal per day, but does not change his
diet. How much weight can he expect to lose in 30 days?

B.) Loss of nutritional value
C.) Loss of biological function (for example, catalysis)
D.) All of A, B, and C
E.) Only two of A, B and C
15.) Which of the following statements about normal hemoglobin (hemoglobin A)
is/are correct?
A.) The hemoglobin molecule consists of four identical subunits
B.) When a hemoglobin molecule binds one molecule of oxygen, its
affinity for binding more oxygen is decreased
C.) The iron of hemoglobin remains in the Fe2+ state in the course of
its normal functioning
D.) All of A, B, and C are correct
E.) Only two of A, B, and C are correct
16.) The binding of oxygen to hemoglobin is described as cooperative. This
means that:
A.) The affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen becomes greater as the pH is
B.) The shape of the oxygen dissociation curve of hemoglobin is
C.) In the presence of 2,3-bisphosphoglycerate, the affinity of
hemoglobin for oxygen is increased
D.) Hemoglobin becomes a weaker acid when it is oxygenated
E.) Hemoglobin is an effective buffer, participating in the control of
the pH of body fluids
