Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

                         In biology a cell is ...

    • A.

      A square.

    • B.

      The basic unit of all living things.

    • C.

      The centre of an atom.

    Correct Answer
    B. The basic unit of all living things.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the basic unit of all living things." This answer is correct because in biology, a cell is indeed considered to be the fundamental unit of life. Cells are the building blocks of all living organisms and are responsible for carrying out the essential functions necessary for life. They contain genetic material, perform metabolic processes, and are capable of self-replication. Therefore, understanding the structure and function of cells is crucial in understanding the complexity of living organisms.

  • 2. 

    An organ is made up of ...

    • A.

      tissues , e.g. a heart has smooth muscle tissue and cardiac muscle tissue.

    • B.

      Cells. The cells are just floating around in a disorganised way.

    • C.

      Muscle tissue.

    Correct Answer
    A. tissues , e.g. a heart has smooth muscle tissue and cardiac muscle tissue.
    Explanation
    Organs are composed of different types of tissues that work together to perform specific functions. For example, the heart is made up of smooth muscle tissue and cardiac muscle tissue. These tissues have specialized cells that are organized in a specific way to allow the heart to contract and pump blood effectively. Therefore, the correct answer is that organs are made up of tissues.

  • 3. 

    Blood cells, nerve cells and brain cells are all examples of...

    • A.

      Cells and organs

    • B.

      Cells

    • C.

      Organ systems

    Correct Answer
    B. Cells
    Explanation
    Blood cells, nerve cells, and brain cells are all examples of cells. Cells are the basic structural and functional units of living organisms. They are responsible for carrying out all the necessary processes for the organism's survival. Blood cells are involved in transporting oxygen and nutrients, nerve cells transmit electrical signals throughout the body, and brain cells are responsible for processing information and controlling bodily functions. Therefore, all these examples fall under the category of cells.

    Which of the following is NOT an organ system?

    • A.

      Circulatory system

    • B.

      Zodiac system

    • C.

      Digestive system

    Correct Answer
    B. Zodiac system
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Zodiac system. The Zodiac system is not an organ system but rather a celestial coordinate system used in astrology. Organ systems, on the other hand, are groups of organs that work together to perform specific functions in the body, such as the circulatory system responsible for transporting blood and the digestive system responsible for breaking down and absorbing nutrients.

  • 5. 

    The brain is an example of an ___________ [choose from cell, organ, organ system]

    Correct Answer
    organ
    Explanation
    The brain is an example of an organ because it is a complex structure made up of different types of tissues that work together to perform specific functions. It is a vital part of the central nervous system and is responsible for controlling and coordinating various bodily activities, such as sensory perception, motor control, and cognitive processes. As an organ, the brain plays a crucial role in maintaining homeostasis and overall body functioning.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

                    Which organ system contains the HEART?

    • A.

      The digestive system

    • B.

      The circular system

    • C.

      The musculoskeletal system

    • D.

      The circulatory system

    Correct Answer
    D. The circulatory system
    Explanation
    The circulatory system contains the heart. The circulatory system is responsible for transporting blood, nutrients, and oxygen throughout the body. The heart is a vital organ within this system as it pumps blood to all parts of the body, ensuring that oxygen and nutrients reach the cells and waste products are removed.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which organ system contains the ulna? [HINT, the ulna is a bone found in your arm]

    • A.

      Circulatory system

    • B.

      Musculoskeletal system

    • C.

      DIgestive system

    • D.

      Reproductive system

    Correct Answer
    B. Musculoskeletal system
    Explanation
    The ulna is a bone found in the arm, specifically in the forearm. It is one of the two bones in the forearm, the other being the radius. The musculoskeletal system is responsible for providing support, protection, and movement to the body. It consists of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues. Since the ulna is a bone, it is a part of the musculoskeletal system.

    Which answer BEST describes an 'organ system'

    • A.

      A group of organs that look similar to each other

    • B.

      A group of organs that have blood running through them

    • C.

      A group of organs that work together to perform a specific function

    • D.

      All the organs that make up one living organism

    Correct Answer
    C. A group of organs that work together to perform a specific function
    Explanation
    An organ system is a group of organs that work together to perform a specific function. This means that the organs within the system have a coordinated effort to carry out a particular task or purpose in the body. It is not simply a group of organs that look similar to each other or have blood running through them. Additionally, an organ system does not necessarily include all the organs that make up one living organism, as there can be multiple organ systems within a single organism.

    Which of these sentences would refer to the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM?

    • A.

      "During the break down of our food, various waste products are made (including gases) which must be excreted from the body."

    • B.

      "When we run fast our cells require more energy to meet our body's increased demands; therefore our heart must beat faster to get more oxygen to our cells to break down food into energy."

    • C.

      "Inside the uterus, sperm are attached by the woman's immune system."

    Correct Answer
    A. "During the break down of our food, various waste products are made (including gases) which must be excreted from the body."
    Explanation
    The sentence "During the break down of our food, various waste products are made (including gases) which must be excreted from the body" refers to the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM because it mentions the process of breaking down food and the production of waste products that need to be excreted. The digestive system is responsible for the breakdown of food into nutrients and the elimination of waste products through processes such as digestion, absorption, and excretion.
