@Sting,
Some answers on yahoo are not right.
Please check the lwebsite attached in the above with my answer.
The answer should be obese.

•An adult who has a BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight.
•An adult who has a BMI of 30 or higher is considered obese.

I made a big mistake there. its range is from 25-30 so there is not a correct answer in the choice.

25-29.9 belong to overweight while 30 is considered to be obese.
Added 12/21/2012 6:28:05 AM
I agree with yeswey, yahoo.answer is not a reliable source as they can be answered by anyone with no expertise.

yeswey, BMI greater than 25 is considered overweight and above 30 is considered obese.
There is not a big between 29.9 and 30 so in that case it is considered to be overweight, please check the link above.

Sting,
I only saw the number 30 (did not know how could i do that) the first time and thats why i gave an answer of "obese". The dispute is the number 30 here. But for the range from 25-30, most part are less than 30, so if i have to choose one i also would choose "overweight" where i would agree with you.

I would go with Yeswey's source of the CDC over Wikipedia as with Yahoo anyone can input information into it. Sting is correct though.
Added 12/21/2012 11:24:34 AM
What if the person who answered in Yahoo also provided a source for their answer?
Added 12/21/2012 12:53:06 PM
Sting, your answer is correct, but please make sure to find a reliable source other than yahoo or . This information is very accessible when you search for it.


Uxiali, yahoo and as sources are for last resorts only. We should not rely on them all the time.

andrewpallarca, Thanks for the Info. I know wiki and yahoo are not always correct thats why i always check my answer on many sites until i am not sure my answer is correct, I will provide good sources of my answers in future. Thank you

You're welcome. It's okay to use wikipedia as a source as I also use it for reference. I don't see anything wrong with that. Wikipedia is not an acceptable source in schools, but not here in Weegy for as long as they are informative. Thank you,
