    • A.

      Collagen

    • B.

      Trabecular Bone

    • E.

      Yellow Bone Marrow

    Correct Answer
    A. Collagen
    Explanation
    During the healing process of a broken bone, collagen, a tough tissue, grows over the fracture site. Collagen is a protein that provides strength and support to various tissues in the body. In the case of bone healing, collagen forms a callus, which is a temporary bridge of new bone tissue that helps stabilize and protect the fracture. Over time, this callus is gradually replaced by new bone tissue, allowing the broken bone to heal and regain its strength.

    B. Shoulder
    Explanation
    The shoulder is an example of a ball and socket joint. This type of joint allows for a wide range of motion in multiple directions. The ball-shaped head of the upper arm bone fits into the cup-shaped socket of the shoulder blade, allowing for movements such as rotation, flexion, extension, abduction, and adduction. The knee and elbow, on the other hand, are hinge joints that allow for back-and-forth movements in one plane only, while the shoulder joint provides a greater range of motion.

    What is the purpose of cartilage?

    • A.

      To prevent bones from wearing out

    • B.

      To provide a smooth, durable material for joints

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the Above
    Explanation
    Cartilage serves multiple purposes in the body. Firstly, it helps prevent bones from wearing out by acting as a cushion between them, reducing friction and absorbing shock. Secondly, it provides a smooth and durable material for joints, allowing for smooth movement and reducing the risk of damage. Lastly, cartilage allows bones to rub against each other without causing damage, facilitating smooth articulation. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the Above" as all the mentioned purposes are fulfilled by cartilage.

      Soda

    • B.

      Coffee

      Milk

    • E.

       Energy Drinks

    Correct Answer
    D. Milk
    Explanation
    Milk is the correct answer because it is a rich source of calcium, which is essential for strong and healthy bones. Calcium helps in building and maintaining bone density, preventing osteoporosis and fractures. Milk also contains other important nutrients like vitamin D, phosphorus, and protein, which further contribute to bone health. Soda, coffee, sports drinks, and energy drinks do not provide the same level of calcium and may even have negative effects on bone health due to their high sugar or caffeine content.
