    Explanation
    The correct answer is Inferior Nasal Canchae. The inferior nasal conchae are curved bones located in the nasal cavity. They are responsible for increasing the surface area of the nasal cavity, helping to filter, warm, and moisten the air we breathe. The shape of the inferior nasal conchae resembles a scroll, with a curved and spiraled structure.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The zygomatic bone is located on both the right and left sides of the face. It is commonly referred to as the cheekbone and forms the prominence of the cheek. The zygomatic bone connects with the frontal bone, temporal bone, and maxilla bone, contributing to the structure of the facial skeleton. Its bilateral presence allows for symmetry in the face.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The Maxilla has a ?

    Correct Answer
    Right and Left
    Explanation
    The maxilla is a bone that forms the upper jaw and is located in the facial region. It is a paired bone, meaning that it is present on both the right and left sides of the face. The maxilla plays a crucial role in facial structure, providing support to the teeth and forming the base of the nasal cavity. Therefore, the correct answer is "Right and Left" as the maxilla is present on both sides of the face.

      Deep, inferior (small corner)

    Correct Answer
    A. Anterior medial corner
    Explanation
    The Lacrimal bone makes up the anterior medial corner of the orbit of the eye. This means that it is located at the front and middle part of the eye socket. The Lacrimal bone helps to form the structure and shape of the orbit, providing support and protection for the eye.

      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    C. C
    Explanation
    The framework of the nose/nasal cavity is made up of the maxilla, septum, and nasal bones. The maxilla forms the upper part of the nasal cavity, while the septum and nasal bones form the structure of the nasal bridge and the lower part of the nasal cavity. The frontal and ethmoid bones mentioned in option b are not part of the framework of the nose/nasal cavity.
