      a.   True
      b.   False

3. What are obligate participants?
      a.   Children whose parents make them participate

      d.   The department chair

5. The IRB representatives on the panel recommend which of the following as a reasonable way to elicit consent from the participants for using their genetic material in different types of studies?
      a.   There is no way to do this. Genetic material should be used only for the specific study for which it was collected.
