False > it says in the video that the major source are desserts and sweetened drinks, after that comes salted food and candy




Actually....jj
that line sparked in my mind the moment I was doing it .....
but I was more into the meaning it gave which is sweets (much sugar) whether candy , desserts, or soft drinks form the major source of calories in kids snacks

what do u think?

mohbaboo
12-2-2012, 04:32 PM
The video was specific and we can't take the general idea (sugar) which could be answered without even listening to the video
and that's why it's a listening to find specific answers quiz
I would be acceptable if the question was general, not a multiple choice qustion
