Description

A quiz reflecting on the content covered in the 'antibiotic resistance' page of the VGEC.

Resource summary

Question 1

Question
Antibiotics are drugs that kills [blank_start]bacteria[blank_end] and are used to treat bacterial [blank_start]infections[blank_end]. They work by inhibiting key biochemical processes in bacteria such as protein [blank_start]synthesis[blank_end].
Answer
  • bacteria
  • infections
  • synthesis

Question 2

Question
We are now threatened by infections with bacteria that are [blank_start]resistant[blank_end] to antibiotics. The biggest problem is the evolution of bacteria that are [blank_start]resistant[blank_end] to [blank_start]multiple classes[blank_end] of antibiotics, as these have very few treatment options.
Answer
  • resistant
  • susceptible
  • resistant
  • susceptible
  • multiple classes
  • one class
  • two classes

Question 3

Question
On the image below, are the bacteria around the antibiotic discs susceptible or resistant?
Answer
  • Resistant
  • Susceptible
  • Resistant
  • Susceptible

Question 4

Question
Antibiotic resistance can occur by mutations to chromosomal DNA or by acquisition of antibiotic resistance genes by [blank_start]horizontal[blank_end] [blank_start]gene[blank_end] [blank_start]transfer[blank_end]. When we use antibiotics to kill populations of bacteria, all of the susceptible cells will be [blank_start]killed[blank_end], allowing the resistant cells to [blank_start]multiply.[blank_end]
Answer
  • horizontal
  • gene
  • transfer
  • killed
  • multiply.

Question 5

Question
Improper and widespread use of antibiotics speeds up the [blank_start]spread[blank_end] of antibiotic resistance. Some examples of improper use include: subscribing antibiotics for infections caused by [blank_start]viruses[blank_end], and use in [blank_start]livestock[blank_end] such as cows to speed up their growth.
Answer
  • spread
  • viruses
  • livestock
