Question 25

Go through the statements below and answer the question that follows:

P. Fast food intake for more than three times a week is associated with greater odds of atopic disorders such as asthma, eczema or rhinitis. Thus, it should be definitely and strictly controlled in children as it does no good.
Q. Regular junk food intake can lead to physical and psychological issues among children.
R. Lack of Vitamins such as A and C, and minerals such as magnesium and calcium, encourage the development of deficiency diseases and osteoporosis, as well as dental caries due to higher intake.
S. Junk food, which are rich in energy with lots of fat and sugar, are relatively low in other important nutrients such as protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
T. Emotional and self-esteem problems, along with chronic illnesses in later life due to obesity, are the issues associated with the junk food.

Which of the following combinations is the MOST logically ordered?


Q is an opening statement that puts forward the idea that regular consumption of junk food can cause problems. S lists out the nutritional facts about junk food and hence validates Q, while R is a supporting statement for S. T explains the various health hazards caused by junk food and P takes it a step forwards and lists out the long term effects of regular fast food consumption.

Hence the correct order is QSRTP.
