Hello again! It is that time of year again, we are getting lost of test questions and school projects. I am glad to help, but hope you still are learning and understanding, therefore I give you the reason for my answers!

1. An abnormal growth of regular or normal cells is the definition of hyperplasia. A new growth of irregular cells so the correct answer is: b. Yes, a new growth of abnormal cells is neoplasia, not hyperplasia.

2. There are multifactoral causes of obesity. So I would pick: a. idiopathic abnormality.

3. C. Cells with abnormal metabolism are abnormal but reproduce normally (neoplasia reproduce at an abnormally fast rate. Many cancerous cells do have abnormal metabolism, but all cells with abnormal metabolism are not cancerous.)
