      Cortisol 

    Correct Answer
    B. Testosterone 
    Explanation
    Testosterone is the hormone responsible for lust in males. Lust is a strong sexual desire, and testosterone is the primary male sex hormone that plays a crucial role in sexual arousal and libido. It is produced primarily in the testicles and is responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics. Testosterone levels tend to be higher in males, and it stimulates sexual desire and behavior, including feelings of lust. Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone, while relaxin and cortisol are not directly associated with sexual desire or lust.

It is not directly involved in the feelings of attraction or love. Dopamine, adrenaline, and serotonin are all hormones that play a role in attraction and romantic feelings. Dopamine is associated with pleasure and reward, adrenaline is associated with excitement and arousal, and serotonin is involved in mood regulation and feelings of happiness.

    Explanation
    Vasopressin is a hormone that plays a crucial role in promoting long-term attachment and intimate bonding. It is often referred to as the "monogamy hormone" as it is associated with behaviors such as pair bonding, territoriality, and aggression. Vasopressin is particularly important in male mammals, where it influences their ability to form and maintain long-term relationships. This hormone helps to strengthen the bond between partners and promotes fidelity and commitment in relationships.

      Adrenaline

    • B.

      Oxytocin

    • D.

      Calmudulin 

    Correct Answer
    A. Adrenaline
    Explanation
    Adrenaline is not responsible for craving cuddles from loved ones. Adrenaline is a hormone released in response to stress or excitement, and it is associated with the fight-or-flight response. On the other hand, oxytocin is often referred to as the "cuddle hormone" because it plays a crucial role in social bonding, trust, and affection. It is released during physical touch, including cuddling, and promotes feelings of love and attachment. Therefore, oxytocin is the hormone responsible for craving cuddles from loved ones, not adrenaline.

It includes structures such as the amygdala, hippocampus, and hypothalamus, which play a crucial role in the formation of romantic feelings and attachment.
