      Sternal

    • D.

      Scapular

    Correct Answer
    D. Scapular
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "scapular" because the term "shoulder blade" refers to the scapula bone, which is a large triangular bone located on the upper back. The other options, "axillary," "pollex," and "sternal," do not specifically relate to the shoulder blade bone. "Axillary" refers to the armpit area, "pollex" refers to the thumb, and "sternal" refers to the sternum bone in the chest.

      Tarsal

    • D.

      Thoric

    Correct Answer
    C. Tarsal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is tarsal because it is the only term that is related to the ankle region. Acromial refers to the shoulder region, antecubital refers to the front of the elbow, and thoric is not a recognized anatomical term. Therefore, tarsal is the most appropriate term for the ankle region.

    Correct Answer
    B. Antecubital
    Explanation
    The correct answer is antecubital. The antecubital region refers to the area in front of the elbow joint. It is a triangular depression that contains important structures such as veins, arteries, and nerves. This region is commonly used for venipuncture, where blood is drawn for medical tests or donations.

    • D.

      Patellar

    Correct Answer
    C. Inguinal
    Explanation
    The term "inguinal" refers to the area near the groin. It is commonly used to describe the region where the thigh meets the lower abdomen. The other terms listed - popliteal, proximal, and patellar - do not specifically relate to the groin area. Therefore, "inguinal" is the correct answer in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 7.

    • D.

      Mental

    Correct Answer
    A. Cephalic
    Explanation
    The term "cephalic" refers to anything related to the head. In this context, "cephalic" is the correct answer because it is the only term that is directly related to the head. "Occipital" refers specifically to the back of the head, "buccal" refers to the cheek area, and "mental" refers to the chin area. Therefore, "cephalic" is the most appropriate term to describe something related to the head.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Armpit

      Tarsal

    • B.

      Axillary

    • C.

      Acromical

    • D.

      Thoracic

    Correct Answer
    B. Axillary
    Explanation
    The term "axillary" refers to the armpit area. It is derived from the Latin word "axilla," which means armpit. The other options, tarsal, acromical, and thoracic, do not specifically relate to the armpit. Tarsal refers to the bones in the foot, acromical relates to the acromion process of the scapula, and thoracic refers to the chest area. Therefore, "axillary" is the correct answer as it is the term that specifically describes the armpit.

      Buccal

    Correct Answer
    A. Sacral
    Explanation
    The term "sacral" refers to the area of the body that is related to the sacrum, which is the triangular bone at the base of the spine. This area is located between the hips and is an important part of the pelvic region. The other options, sural, hallux, and buccal, do not relate to the area between the hips and are not correct answers in this context.

      Digital

    • D.

      Plantar

    Correct Answer
    D. Plantar
    Explanation
    The term "plantar" refers to the sole of the foot. It is the correct answer because it specifically relates to the given question about the sole of the foot. "Sural" refers to the calf, "tarsal" refers to the ankle, and "digital" refers to the fingers or toes. However, only "plantar" directly relates to the sole of the foot.

    • D.

      Calcaneal

    Correct Answer
    A. Politeal
    Explanation
    The term "politeal" is likely a typographical error, as the correct term is "popliteal." The popliteal region is located at the back of the knee. Therefore, "politeal" is the correct answer.

      Femoral

    Correct Answer
    D. Femoral
    Explanation
    The term "femoral" refers to the femur bone, which is the longest and strongest bone in the human body. It is located in the thigh region and connects the hip joint to the knee joint. The other options mentioned in the question, such as thoracic, tarsal, and sternal, are not related to the thigh or femur bone. Therefore, "femoral" is the correct answer in this context.

      Coxal

    Correct Answer
    A. Acromical
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "acromical". The term "acromical" is likely a misspelling or typographical error, as the correct term is "acromial". The acromial region refers to the point of the shoulder, specifically the bony prominence at the top of the shoulder blade (scapula). This region is important in shoulder movements and is commonly referenced in anatomy and medical literature.

    • C.

      Frontal

    • D.

      Lumbar

    Correct Answer
    D. Lumbar
    Explanation
    The term "lower back" refers to the region of the back that is located below the ribs and above the hips. The lumbar region specifically refers to the lower part of the spine, consisting of the five vertebrae labeled L1 to L5. These vertebrae are larger and stronger compared to other vertebrae in the spine, as they bear most of the body's weight and provide support for the upper body. Therefore, "lumbar" is the correct answer as it accurately describes the region of the back mentioned in the question.

    • D.

      Perineal

    Correct Answer
    A. Orbital
    Explanation
    The eye area refers to the region around the eyes. The term "orbital" specifically relates to the orbit, which is the bony socket that houses the eye. Therefore, the term "orbital" is the most appropriate choice as it directly pertains to the eye area. The other options - oral, mental, and perineal - do not specifically relate to the eye area and are therefore not correct.

    • D.

      Mental

    Correct Answer
    B. Nasal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "nasal" because it is the only term related to the nose. Tarsal refers to the bones in the foot, buccal refers to the cheek, and mental refers to the chin. Therefore, nasal is the only option that is relevant to the given word "Nose".

    • D.

      Digital

    Correct Answer
    A. Manus
