c. When someone is unresponsive, has a pulse and is breathing

2. What is the correct rate of compressions for adult CPR?
a. 60 - 100compressions per minutes
b. 80-100 compressions
c. 100-120 compressions per minute
d. At least 120 compressions per minute

3. What is the correct ratio of compressions to ventilations for 1 rescuer Adult CPR?
a. 15 compressions to 2 breaths
b. 5 compressions to 1 breath
c. 30 compressions to 2 breaths
d. 20 compressions to 2 breaths
