Would you make any edits to the following sentences: Jenna and Chris is going to go to the store. Them need to buy eggs milk bread. If you made changes, explain below.
I would write the sentence as follows: "Jenna and Chris are going to the store. They need to buy eggs, milk, and bread." "Is" needed to be changed to "are" due to the sentence referring to two or more people. "Is going to go" needed to be changed to "are going" to be more direct and concise. In the last sentence, "them" is changed to "they" because it is a pronoun, and commas are added between list items.
A student psychologist saw a client that presented with the following symptoms: obsessions regarding a particular feature of their body, severe delusions regarding personal appearance, and an avoidance of food with fat in it due to fear of gaining weight. The student has diagnosed the client with psychosis due to the severe delusions. Do you agree with this diagnosis? Why or why not?
I do not agree with this diagnosis. While psychotic disorders should be included in a differential diagnosis, there are no other features of psychotic disorders. The client displays symptoms consistent with Body Dysmorphic Disorder, including hyper-fixation on an imagined physical flaw as well as delusions regarding that flaw. While I would need more information, the client may also be exhibiting symptoms of Anorexia/ARFID due to the avoidance of certain foods due to fear of gaining weight.
A mother and father both have brown hair. Is it possible for these two parents with brown hair to have a child with red hair? Explain if/how this might be possible. Make sure to include: • Genotypes of parents • Genotype of offspring • Probability of the offspring having red hair
It is possible for two parents with brown hair to have a child with red hair if BOTH of the parents are heterozygous. If both parents are heterozygous (one dominant trait and one recessive trait), then there is a 25% chance that their child could have red hair. If only one of the parents is heterozygous, and the other is homozygous dominant, this is not possible.
