What is MIC90 and MIC50?

The MIC50 and MIC90 is a way of recording antibiotic sensitivities more conviniently, especially if your trying to report MICs of a large group or organisms. The MIC 50 would show that 50% of the organisms lie below this MIC, e.g an MIC50 of 32 shows that 50% of your organisms have an MIC of 32 less and the same principal for the MIC90. This just shows that 90% of your organisms lie below that MIC eg. MIC 90 of 128 means 90% of your organisms are at 128 or below so this represents the majority or average.

Which type of line follows the outline of an object?

It depends upon the dimensions that you are working with.In one dimension all level are mundane and all lines are simply referred to as 'the line'.In two dimensions it depends upon which direction you proceed from a reference point. If the point is contained within the boundary of the line then all parts of the line are 'the out-line'. If the point is exterior to the line boundary then all parts of the line are 'the in-line'.In three dimensions there are nine variations to proceed from a point of reference and are (now-a-days) referred to in ordered of their level hierarchy.out out outout out inout in outin out outout in inin out inin in outin in inmundane -- unity with the point of reference.
