Blood & White Blood Cell - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the lifespan of red blood cells (RBC)?

    • A.

      60 hours

    • B.

      10 weeks

    • C.

      120

    • D.

      45

    • E.

      120 days

    Correct Answer
    E. 120 days
    Explanation
    Answer C is incorrect because it was not specific enough

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    What is the major component(s) of plasma proteins?

    • A.

      Globulins

    • B.

      Albumin

    • C.

      Fibrogen

    • D.

      Immunoglobins

    • E.

      Salt, eggs, and a pinch of sugar

    Correct Answer
    B. Albumin
    Explanation
    Albumin is the major component of plasma proteins. It is a protein found in the blood and is responsible for maintaining the osmotic pressure of the blood, transporting hormones, fatty acids, and drugs, and regulating the pH balance of the blood. Globulins, fibrogen, and immunoglobins are also components of plasma proteins, but albumin is the most abundant and plays a crucial role in various physiological processes.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Where are alpha globulins made?  And why is it important?

    • A.

      Liver; Regulator of the immune Systems

    • B.

      Spleen: Initiates allergic reactions

    • C.

      Bone: Responds to Bacterial infections

    • D.

      Liver; Clotting

    • E.

      Liver; Sanity

    Correct Answer
    D. Liver; Clotting
    Explanation
    Alpha globulins are made in the liver. This is important because alpha globulins play a crucial role in the process of blood clotting. They are involved in the coagulation cascade, which helps to stop bleeding by forming blood clots. Without alpha globulins, the body would have difficulty in clotting blood, leading to excessive bleeding and potential life-threatening situations. The liver's production of alpha globulins ensures that the clotting process can occur effectively when needed.

    RBCs are the most abundent cell in the blood and round in shape

    • A.

      False

    • B.

      True

    Correct Answer
    A. False
    Explanation
    RBC are biconcave in shape

  • 5. 

    Of the following which are granular white blood cells (WBC)  - meaning lobed nuclues and cytoplasmic granules are apparent?  (May have more than one correct asnwer

    • A.

      Neutrophils

    • B.

      Basophils

    • C.

      Monocytes

    • D.

      Macrophages

    • E.

      T-cells

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Neutrophils
    B. Basophils
    Explanation
    Neutrophils and Basophils are granular white blood cells (WBC) because they have a lobed nucleus and cytoplasmic granules that are visible. Monocytes, Macrophages, and T-cells do not have lobed nuclei or visible cytoplasmic granules, so they are not granular WBCs.

  • 6. 

    ___________ account for 1-6% of WBC, releases histmines and is a major response in allergic reactions.

    • A.

      Basophil

    • B.

      Monocytes

    • C.

      T-Cell

    • D.

      Platelets

    • E.

      Eosinophil

    Correct Answer
    E. Eosinophil
    Explanation
    Eosinophils account for 1-6% of white blood cells (WBC) and are known to release histamines, which are involved in allergic reactions. This makes eosinophils a major player in the immune response to allergies.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The Blood cell that can attack a specific antigen is a(n)

    • A.

      Monocyte

    • B.

      Lymphocyte

    • C.

      Eosinophil

    • D.

      Neutrophil

    • E.

      Basophil

    Correct Answer
    B. Lymphocyte
    Explanation
    Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that play a crucial role in the immune system. They are responsible for recognizing and attacking specific antigens, such as bacteria, viruses, and other foreign substances. Lymphocytes are able to do this through the presence of specialized receptors on their surface that can bind to specific antigens. Once bound, lymphocytes can initiate an immune response to eliminate the antigen. Therefore, lymphocytes are the blood cells that can attack a specific antigen.

    Our Student Vice President, Aaron, has just donated blood.  Shortly thereafter, his bone marrow is gearing up to replace the loss.  Which of the formed elements will be produced in the greatest amount? (Hint: Asking for end product)

    • A.

      Basophils

    • B.

      Erythrocytes

    • C.

      Lymphocytes

    • D.

      Proerythroblast

    • E.

      Myleoblast

    Correct Answer
    B. Erythrocytes
    Explanation
    Asking for end product so answer D is incorrect

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Order the WBC from most common to least common.

  • 10. 

    What enzyme do platelets produce and what does the enzyme convert and what is the end product.

    • A.

      Thrombin; T -cells; fibrogen

    • B.

      Gamma; Globulins; blood clot

    • C.

      Thromboplastin; prothrombin; blood clot

    • D.

      The answer is C

    • E.

      Serotonin; Heparin; mesenchyme

    Correct Answer
    C. Thromboplastin; prothrombin; blood clot
    Explanation
    Platelets produce the enzyme thromboplastin. Thromboplastin converts prothrombin into thrombin. Thrombin then plays a crucial role in the formation of blood clots. Therefore, the end product of this process is a blood clot.
