1-B:

"Leaky integrator" refers to the VOR,which tends to always correct the gaze towards the centre in the event of a vestibular lesion,and thus explains Alexander's 3 laws.

2-C:

It has been proved beyond doubt that the final results of septoplasty are often unsatisfactory and not as expected from the surgical correction.

3-B:

Tonsillectomy does not offer any protection against rheumatic heart disease as the latter is an immune-complex reaction resulting from streptococcal sore throat,which is not common any more.Even in the preantibiotic era,removal of the tonsils was not advocated as a means to protect against RHD.
