Saladin Anatomy And Physiology Quiz - Quiz

The Saladin book on anatomy and physiology is a good read as it is set up to teach one about the Skeleton and bones in simple and understandable language. Have you read this book and believe you understand it well? Take up this quick quiz and find out. Good luck!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following does the skeleton not do?

    • A.

      Support

    • B.

      Protect

    • C.

      Allow movement

    • D.

      Provide storage

    Correct Answer
    D. Provide storage
    Explanation
    The skeleton does not provide storage. The main functions of the skeleton are to support the body, protect internal organs, and allow movement. Storage of minerals and fats is not a primary function of the skeleton.

    Bone is also known as ________ tissue

    • A.

      Osseous

    • B.

      Subcutaneous

    • C.

      Skeletal

    Correct Answer
    A. Osseous
    Explanation
    Bone is also known as osseous tissue because osseous refers specifically to bone tissue. It is the hard, dense, and rigid connective tissue that forms the structural framework of the body and provides support, protection, and mobility. Osseous tissue contains specialized cells called osteocytes, along with collagen fibers and mineral salts, which give bone its strength and resilience. The term osseous accurately describes the nature and composition of bone tissue, making it the correct answer.

  • 3. 

    Which is not a type of bone?

    • A.

      Flat

    • B.

      Long

    • C.

      Wide

    • D.

      Short

    Correct Answer
    C. Wide
    Explanation
    The given options include different types of bones, such as flat, long, and short. However, "wide" is not a recognized type of bone. Bones are generally classified based on their shape and function, and wide is not a commonly used classification for bones.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The expanded heads of bones are known as ___________

    • A.

      Diaphysis

    • B.

      Epiphysis

    • C.

      Lamellar

    Correct Answer
    B. Epiphysis
    Explanation
    The expanded heads of bones are known as epiphysis. The epiphysis is the rounded end of a long bone, which articulates with another bone to form a joint. It is composed of cancellous bone and contains red bone marrow, which is responsible for the production of blood cells. The epiphysis plays a crucial role in the growth and development of bones.

  • 5. 

    _______________ are bone forming cells

    • A.

      Macrophages

    • B.

      Osteoblasts

    • C.

      Phagocytes

    Correct Answer
    B. Osteoblasts
    Explanation
    Osteoblasts are bone forming cells. They are responsible for the synthesis and secretion of the organic matrix of bone, which eventually mineralizes and forms new bone tissue. Osteoblasts play a crucial role in bone development, growth, and repair. They are derived from mesenchymal stem cells and are found on the surface of bone. Through their activity, osteoblasts contribute to the overall strength and structure of the skeletal system.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The formation of bone is called _____________

    • A.

      Fusion

    • B.

      Reproduction

    • C.

      Crystallization

    • D.

      Ossification

    Correct Answer
    D. Ossification
    Explanation
    Ossification is the correct answer because it refers to the process of bone formation. During ossification, cartilage or fibrous tissue is replaced by bone tissue, resulting in the formation of bones. This process is essential for the development, growth, and repair of skeletal structures in the body. Fusion, reproduction, and crystallization are not accurate terms to describe the formation of bone.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Mineral resorption is the process of ____________ bone

    • A.

      Dissolving

    • B.

      Fusing

    • C.

      Forming

    Correct Answer
    A. Dissolving
    Explanation
    Mineral resorption is the process in which minerals, such as calcium, are removed from the bone tissue. This process involves the dissolution of the minerals, meaning they are broken down and absorbed by the body. This is an important process for maintaining the balance of minerals in the body and for remodeling of the bone tissue.

    Calcitriol is a form of vitamin __________

    • A.

      A

    • B.

      B

    • C.

      C

    • D.

      D
