      Desmosome

    • B.

      Gap junction

    • C.

      Tight junction

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Desmosome
    Explanation
    Desmosomes are cell adhesion structures that provide strong mechanical connections between cells. They are especially important in tissues that undergo a lot of stretch or mechanical stress, such as the skin or heart. Desmosomes anchor intermediate filaments within cells, allowing them to withstand tension and maintain tissue integrity. Therefore, in a tissue undergoing a lot of stretch, desmosomes would be the most important type of junction between cells to ensure the tissue remains intact and cohesive.

    When it is 25 degrees F outside, which of the following would you expect to happen?

    • A.

      Vasodilation of blood vessels in the skin

    • B.

      Increased secretion from sudoriferous glands

    • C.

      Vasoconstriction of blood vessels

    • D.

      None of these, the body is in homeostasis

    Correct Answer
    C. Vasoconstriction of blood vessels
    Explanation
    When it is 25 degrees F outside, the body would expect vasoconstriction of blood vessels to occur. Vasoconstriction is the narrowing of blood vessels, which helps to reduce blood flow to the skin and conserve heat. This is a physiological response that helps to maintain the body's core temperature in cold conditions. Vasodilation of blood vessels in the skin and increased secretion from sudoriferous glands are more likely to occur in warmer temperatures as the body tries to cool down. Therefore, vasoconstriction of blood vessels is the expected response in this situation.

    • A.

      Papillary layer of the dermis

    • B.

      Reticular layer of the dermis

    • C.

      Epidermis

    • D.

      Arrector pili tissue

    Correct Answer
    B. Reticular layer of the dermis
    Explanation
    Based on the description provided, the presence of collagen fibers running in various directions indicates that the tissue is part of the dermis. The dermis is composed of two layers: the papillary layer and the reticular layer. The papillary layer is closer to the epidermis and contains loosely arranged collagen fibers, while the reticular layer is deeper and consists of dense irregular connective tissue with collagen fibers running in different directions. Therefore, the presence of collagen fibers in multiple orientations suggests that the tissue is located in the reticular layer of the dermis.

    You are looking at a bone cell under the microscope. You are told that the cell is derived from a blood cell. It must be a(n)

    • A.

      Osteocyte

    • B.

      Osteoclast

    • C.

      Osteoprogenitor cell

    • D.

      Osteoblast

    Correct Answer
    B. Osteoclast
    Explanation
    An osteoclast is a type of bone cell that is responsible for breaking down and resorbing bone tissue. In this scenario, if the cell is derived from a blood cell, it suggests that it has the ability to break down bone tissue, making it an osteoclast. Osteocytes are mature bone cells that are involved in maintaining bone tissue, but they do not have the ability to break it down. Osteoprogenitor cells are stem cells that can differentiate into osteoblasts, which are responsible for bone formation. Therefore, the most appropriate answer based on the given information is osteoclast.

    Where in a long bone does endochondral ossification begin?

    • A.

      In the middle of the epiphysis

    • B.

      Along the periosteum

    • C.

      In the middle of the diaphysis

    • D.

      Along the endosteum

    Correct Answer
    C. In the middle of the diaphysis
    Explanation
    Endochondral ossification is the process by which long bones develop and grow. It begins in the middle of the diaphysis, which is the shaft or main portion of the long bone. This is where the primary ossification center forms, and the bone tissue gradually replaces the cartilage model. The process then continues towards the ends of the bone, in the epiphyses. Therefore, the correct answer is "in the middle of the diaphysis."

    Johnny broke his "cheek bone". A fracture of which of the following would be most likely?

    • A.

      Zygomatic bone

    • B.

      Vomer

    • C.

      Mandible

    • D.

      Lacrimal bone

    Correct Answer
    A. Zygomatic bone
    Explanation
    A fracture of the zygomatic bone would be most likely in this case because the zygomatic bone, also known as the cheekbone, is the bone that forms the prominence of the cheek. Since Johnny broke his "cheek bone," it suggests that the fracture occurred in the zygomatic bone. The other options, such as the vomer, mandible, and lacrimal bone, are not directly related to the cheek area.

    The proximal end of the tibia forms a joint with the

    • A.

      Talus

    • B.

      Calcaneus

    • C.

      Femur

    • D.

      Pelvis

    Correct Answer
    C. Femur
    Explanation
    The proximal end of the tibia forms a joint with the femur. The tibia is one of the two bones in the lower leg, and its proximal end refers to the upper part of the bone. The joint formed between the tibia and the femur is known as the knee joint. This joint allows for movement and stability of the leg, and is crucial for activities such as walking, running, and jumping. The talus and calcaneus are bones in the foot, while the pelvis is a bone in the hip region, and they do not form a joint with the proximal end of the tibia.

    Which of these bones is found in the foot?

    • A.

      Hamate

    • B.

      Vomer

    • C.

      Trapezoid

    • D.

      Cuboid

    Correct Answer
    D. Cuboid
    Explanation
    The cuboid bone is found in the foot. It is one of the seven tarsal bones, which are located in the midfoot region. The cuboid bone is situated on the lateral side of the foot, between the calcaneus (heel bone) and the fourth and fifth metatarsal bones. It helps to provide stability and support to the foot, allowing for proper movement and weight-bearing.

    • A.

      Scapula

    • B.

      Sternum

    • C.

      Humerus

    • D.

      1st rib

    Correct Answer
    A. Scapula
    Explanation
    The lateral end of the clavicle forms a joint with the scapula. This joint is known as the acromioclavicular joint and is located at the top of the shoulder. The clavicle connects to the scapula at the acromion process, allowing for movement and stability in the shoulder joint. The sternum, humerus, and 1st rib do not form a joint with the lateral end of the clavicle.

    At its inferior end, the sacrum forms a joint with the

    • A.

      Pelvis

    • B.

      Femur

    • C.

      L5

    • D.

      Coccyx

    Correct Answer
    D. Coccyx
    Explanation
    The sacrum, a triangular bone at the base of the spine, forms a joint with the coccyx, also known as the tailbone. The sacrum and coccyx are part of the vertebral column and are located at the inferior end of the spine. This joint allows for slight movement and flexibility in the lower back and pelvis region. The sacrum does not form a joint with the pelvis, femur, or L5 (the fifth lumbar vertebra).
