The Correct answer is (C)
(1/5)Recombinant vector vaccines are made through genetic engineering. The gene that creates the protein for a bacteria or virus is isolated and placed inside another cell’s genes.
(2/5)When that cell reproduces, it produces vaccine proteins that mean the immune system will recognize the protein and protect the body against it. Hence, statement 1 is correct.

(1/4)Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs) are devices that use bacteria as the catalysts to oxidize organic and inorganic matter and generate current.
(2/4)Electrons produced by the bacteria from these substrates are transferred to the anode (negative terminal) and flow to the cathode (positive terminal). Hence, statements 1 and 2 are correct.

Let’s talk about science and research for a second. Research journals are given a rating used to measure their importance based on citations. This is called an “Impact Factor”. An Impact Factor of >10 puts a journal near the top 1% of all cited journals. 1/x
So a high Impact Factor journal is widely considered reputable by the general scientific/research/medical community. So when a high Impact Factor journal comes out with a statement, it should be taken seriously. 2/x
Consider this article “Trump lied about science” from @ScienceMagazine (IF 41.85)… 3/x

This adventure launches by having the PCs stand around doing nothing while the GM describes an NPC doing awesome stuff.

It then proceeds to "if they don't do what you tell them to do, the NPCs automatically find them and kill them".

It's not an auspicious beginning.
NPC: "I will help you after this cut scene."

But then you're supposed to make the PCs wait an arbitrary and unspecified amount of time for the cut scene to happen in a location where there's basically nothing for them to do except say, "We wait."

What is happening?!
The PCs level up after the first SCENE of the adventure.

You create your characters and then maybe 20 minutes later you pause the narrative so that they can level them up.

Just create 2nd level characters!
