Read the passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions. 

In addition to providing energy, fats have several other functions in the body. The fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E, and K, are dissolved in fats, as their name implies. Good sources of these vitamins have the high oil or fat content, and the vitamins are stored in the body’s fatty tissues. In the diet, fats cause food to remain longer in the stomach, thus increasing the feeling of fullness for some time after a meal is eaten. Fats add variety, taste, and texture to foods, which accounts for the popularity of fried foods. Fatty deposits in the body have an insulating and protective value. The curves of the human female body are due mostly to strategically located fat deposits.

Whether a certain amount of fat in the diet is essential to human health is not definitely known. When rats are fed a fat-free diet, their growth eventually ceases, their skin becomes inflamed and scaly, and their reproductive systems are damaged. Two fatty acids, linoleic and arachidonic acids, prevent these abnormalities and hence are called essential fatty acids. They also are required by a number of other animals but their roles in human beings are debatable. Most nutritionists consider linoleic fatty acid an essential nutrient for humans.

What is the passage mainly discussed?

  • The benefits of fats for human bodies
  • Forming process of fats in human bodies
  • Comparison between bad fats and good fats
  • Fats that animals need to develop their bodies

  • promote a feeling of fullness

The phrase “these abnormalities” refers to ________.

  • a condition caused by fried food
  • strategically located fat deposits
  • curves on the human female body
  • cessation of growth, bad skin, and damaged reproductive systems

What can be inferred about the fatty acids in human bodies and animals’ bodies?

  • Human bodies need the same amount of fatty acids as animals’.
  • Animals require more linoleic and arachidonic acids than humans.
  • Essential fatty acids for animals are unlikely to be important for humans.
  • That linoleic fatty acid is certainly necessary for human bodies is proven.
