    Body fat
    Book says "indication of height to weight ratio" which surely suggests it is body composition ?

    What did u out for the push-up question: Tricep, flexion and eccentric?
    I think they tried to trick people into putting bicep as flexion, as flexion of the elbow causes the biceps to contract but in the push-up position on the way down the triceps take the load. But again never can be too sure.

    Also what did u mention for the increasing participation for girls in school??

    How come its body composition? Isn't bmi a measure of obesity which is defined as 20% + body fat therefore bmi calculates body fat maybe I'm wrong.

    For increasing girls I put increase range of activities, make it more fashionable, single sex groups

    Well the reason I didn't choose body fat is because BMI stands for body mass index, emphasis on the "mass" meaning the total mass of the individual. And whilst still can be used to gage body fat, nowadays it's rendered as irrelevant and limited as it doesn't take into account an indivduals muscle mass, only total mass.

    For example I'm 5ft 6 70KG. On a BMI chart would be considered overweight and thus you would assume I have a high body fat. But in reality my body fat is like 14-15% which is standard. This happens because muscle mass is not taken into account. Hope that makes sense lol.

    It calculates body composition, I wasn't thinking straight in that exam and put body fat, although I got the analysis of movement right. It was Flexion, Tricep branchii and Eccentric 👍🏼

    But I thought that was one of the reasons why BMI is a weakness.. because it is invalid as it doesn't account for large muscle mass or a large physique/frame. If you type "what is BMI" in google, most search results will say "BMI is a measure of body fat"
