Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these muscle tissue is not striated?

    • A.

      Skeletal

    • B.

      Cardiac

    • C.

      Smooth

    Correct Answer
    C. Smooth
    Explanation
    Smooth muscle tissue is not striated. Unlike skeletal and cardiac muscle tissue, which have a striped or striated appearance due to the arrangement of their contractile proteins, smooth muscle tissue lacks this striation. Smooth muscle is found in the walls of hollow organs, such as the intestines and blood vessels, and is responsible for involuntary movements, such as peristalsis and vasoconstriction. Its lack of striations is due to the different arrangement of its contractile proteins, which allows for slower and more sustained contractions compared to skeletal and cardiac muscle.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Smooth mucle and cardiac muscle are involuntary

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Smooth muscle and cardiac muscle are both types of muscle tissue that are involuntarily controlled by the autonomic nervous system. Smooth muscle is found in the walls of organs, blood vessels, and the digestive system, while cardiac muscle is found exclusively in the heart. These muscles contract and relax without conscious control, allowing them to perform their respective functions without the need for conscious effort. Therefore, the statement that smooth muscle and cardiac muscle are involuntary is true.

    Correct Answer
    D. Calcium
    Explanation
    Calcium and phosphorus compounds are stored in your skeleton for later use. Calcium is an essential mineral that plays a crucial role in maintaining strong bones and teeth. It is stored in the bones, along with phosphorus compounds, to provide a reserve for the body's calcium needs. When the body requires calcium for various functions such as muscle contraction, nerve signaling, and blood clotting, it can be released from the bones to fulfill these needs. Therefore, calcium is the correct answer as it is one of the main components stored in the skeleton for later use.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Before birth, your skeleton begins as _____________,  which is gradually replaced by bone  

    • A.

      Spongy bone

    • B.

      Ligaments

    • C.

      Muscles

    • D.

      Cartlige

    Correct Answer
    D. Cartlige
    Explanation
    Before birth, your skeleton begins as cartilage, which is gradually replaced by bone. Cartilage is a flexible connective tissue that provides a framework for the developing bones. As the fetus grows, the cartilage is gradually replaced by bone through a process called ossification. This process involves the deposition of minerals, such as calcium, onto the cartilage, transforming it into hard bone tissue. By the time of birth, most of the cartilage has been replaced by bone, resulting in a fully formed skeleton.
