(Answer to Q. 1)  ANS: B
When the expiratory component of harsh breath sounds equals the inspiratory component, they are described as bronchial breath sounds.

(Answer to Q. 2)  ANS: C
Another continuous type of adventitious lung sounds heard in certain situations, primarily over the larynx and trachea during inhalation, is stridor. Stridor is a loud, high-pitched sound, which sometimes can be heard without a stethoscope. Most common in infants and small children, stri-dor is a sign of obstruction in the trachea or larynx. Stridor is most often heard during inspiration.
