Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Eggs are created in the:

    • A.

      Cervix

    • B.

      Ovaries

    • C.

      Uterus

    • D.

      Fallopian tubes

    Correct Answer
    B. Ovaries
    Explanation
    Eggs are created in the ovaries. The ovaries are the reproductive organs in females that produce eggs (ova) through a process called ovulation. These eggs are then released into the fallopian tubes, where they can be fertilized by sperm if sexual intercourse occurs. The cervix and uterus are parts of the female reproductive system but are not involved in the creation of eggs.

    Identify the organ shown below:

    • A.

      Ovary

    • B.

      Uterus

    • C.

      Testes

    • D.

      Fallopian tubes

    Correct Answer
    D. Fallopian tubes
    Explanation
    The organ shown in the image is the fallopian tubes. The fallopian tubes are a pair of tubes that connect the ovaries to the uterus in females. They serve as a pathway for the egg to travel from the ovary to the uterus. The fallopian tubes are also the site of fertilization, where the sperm and egg meet.

    Identify the organ shown below:

    • A.

      Uterus

    • B.

      Ovaries

    • C.

      Vagina

    • D.

      Fallopian tubes

    Correct Answer
    A. Uterus
    Explanation
    The organ shown in the image is the uterus. The uterus is a hollow, muscular organ located in the female reproductive system. It is responsible for nurturing and housing a developing fetus during pregnancy. The uterus is where the fertilized egg implants and grows into a baby. It has a thick muscular wall and a cavity that can expand to accommodate the growing fetus. The uterus also plays a role in menstruation, as it sheds its lining during the menstrual cycle if fertilization does not occur.

      Ovary

    • B.

      Vagina

    • C.

      Uterus

    • D.

      Fallopian tubes

    Correct Answer
    B. Vagina
    Explanation
    The organ shown in the image is the vagina. The vagina is a muscular canal that connects the uterus to the external opening of the female reproductive system. It is responsible for receiving the penis during sexual intercourse and serves as the birth canal during childbirth.

     Which of the following is NOT a function of the female reproductive system?

    • A.

      Maintaining the reproductive cycle through hormones

    • B.

      Creating egg cells

    • C.

      Absorbing waste created during the reproductive cycle

    • D.

      Nurturing growing embryos

    Correct Answer
    C. Absorbing waste created during the reproductive cycle
    Explanation
    The female reproductive system performs various functions, including maintaining the reproductive cycle through hormones, creating egg cells, and nurturing growing embryos. However, absorbing waste created during the reproductive cycle is not a function of the female reproductive system.

    The diagram below shows the EXTERNAL female genitals, also known as the:

    • A.

      Uterus

    • B.

      Vulva

    • C.

      Vagina

    • D.

      Ovaries

    Correct Answer
    B. Vulva
    Explanation
    The diagram provided depicts the external female genitalia, which includes the vulva. The vulva refers to the external parts of the female reproductive system, including the labia majora, labia minora, clitoris, and vaginal opening. It is important to note that the uterus, vagina, and ovaries are internal reproductive organs and are not shown in the diagram.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When a woman has a tubal ligation (a procedure known as getting her "tubes tied"), WHY does this prevent pregnancy?

    • A.

      Because sperm cannot reach the egg to fertilize it

    • B.

      Because it destroys egg cells

    • C.

      Because it stops production of eggs

    • D.

      Because it forces menstruation and the release of the uterine lining

    Correct Answer
    A. Because sperm cannot reach the egg to fertilize it
    Explanation
    When a woman has a tubal ligation, it involves blocking or sealing the fallopian tubes. This prevents sperm from reaching the egg, which is necessary for fertilization to occur. By blocking the pathway, the procedure effectively prevents pregnancy by ensuring that the egg cannot be fertilized.

    A woman and her husband are having trouble getting pregnant. The doctors tell them that they are having a problem with ovulation. This means that the problem is happening in:

    • A.

      The woman's ovaries

    • B.

      The man's testes

    • C.

      The man's penis

    • D.

      The woman's uterus

    Correct Answer
    A. The woman's ovaries
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the woman's ovaries. Ovulation is the process in which an egg is released from the ovaries. If there is a problem with ovulation, it means that the woman's ovaries are not releasing eggs regularly or at all, making it difficult for her to get pregnant.

    This woman is in labor! The doctors say she is 4 inches dilated. What part of her reproductive system are they referring to?

    • A.

      Cervix

    • B.

      Labia

    • C.

      Fallopian tubes

    • D.

      Clitoris

    Correct Answer
    A. Cervix
    Explanation
    The doctors are referring to the cervix when they say the woman is 4 inches dilated. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. During labor, the cervix gradually opens up or dilates to allow the baby to pass through the birth canal. The measurement of dilation indicates how much the cervix has opened, with 10 centimeters being fully dilated.
