Q.1. What are the health and educational implications of adolescent pregnancy?

This paper identifies important unanswered questions, such as the risk of long-term negative physical and mental health effects for teenage mothers and their children. In order to educate health practitioners and evaluate the consequences for primary care, more research into these unresolved problems is needed, according to the authors.

Q.2. Write a short note on pharmacology.

A drug may be described as any artificial, natural, or endogenous (from within the body) molecule that exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism, and pharmacology is a branch of medicine and pharmaceutical sciences concerned with drug or medication action (sometimes the word pharmacon is used as a term to encompass these endogenous and exogenous bioactive species).

Q.3. Write down the process of the:
(i) mid-arm circumference

For the study population, mid-arm circumference and mid-arm/head circumference ratio values were defined. Curves for mid-arm circumference and mid-arm/head circumference ratio in relation to birth weight were obtained.

(ii) measurement of height

On one foot, some tape measurements measure in centimeters, and on the other, they measure in inches. Depending on why an individual wants the measurement, it might be appropriate to convert the tape measure if it only has one form of measurement. A conversion feature is available on many calculators. Tables like the one below often show height in feet (ft), inches (in), and centimeters (cm) (cm).

(iii) body mass index.

Based on tissue mass (muscle, fat, and bone) and height, the BMI is a handy rule of thumb used to narrowly categorize an individual as underweight, medium weight, overweight, or obese. Underweight (less than 18.5 kg/m2), average weight (18.5 to 25 kg/m2), overweight (25 to 30 kg/m2), and obese (more than 30 kg/m2) are the commonly recognized BMI ranges (over 30).

(iv) tongue examination

The human tongue is divided into two sections: an oral section in front and a pharyngeal section in back. A vertical segment of fibrous tissue (the lingual septum) separates the left and right sides of the tongue for the majority of its length, resulting in a groove on the tongue's surface called the median surface.
