Solution

Refrigeration:

  1. We can preserve food by cooling or freezing.
  2. The fundamental reason for having a refrigerator is to keep food cold.
  3. Cold temperatures help foods to stay fresh longer for a longer time.
  4. The basic idea behind refrigeration is to slow down the activity of bacteria and fungi (which all food contains) so that it takes longer for these microbes to spoil the food.
