    Which part of the mouth is used to tasting?

      Teeth

    • B.

      Lips

      Tongue

    • D.

      Alveolar ridge

    Correct Answer
    C. Tongue
    Explanation
    The tongue is used for tasting. It contains taste buds that can detect different flavors such as sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. The taste buds send signals to the brain, allowing us to perceive and differentiate between various tastes. The other options, teeth, lips, and alveolar ridge, do not directly contribute to the sense of taste. Teeth are used for biting and chewing food, lips help with speaking and protecting the mouth, and the alveolar ridge is a bony ridge behind the upper front teeth.

    D. 4
    Explanation
    Teeth can be divided into four types: incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. Incisors are the sharp, flat-edged teeth at the front of the mouth used for cutting and biting. Canines are the pointed teeth on each side of the incisors, used for tearing and gripping food. Premolars are the teeth located behind the canines, used for grinding and crushing food. Molars are the largest teeth at the back of the mouth, also used for grinding and chewing food. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.
