Organisation Of The Body - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the function of the organelle below?

    • A.

      Support

    • B.

      Control

    • C.

      Movement

    Correct Answer
    B. Control
    Explanation
    The organelle mentioned in the question is responsible for control. This suggests that it plays a role in regulating and coordinating various cellular activities. It could be referring to organelles such as the nucleus, which contains the genetic material and controls the cell's functions, or the endoplasmic reticulum, which is involved in protein synthesis and lipid metabolism. Without further context, it is difficult to determine the specific organelle being referred to.

    Which of the following terms describes the movement of a molecule from a high to a low concentration?

    • A.

      Active transport

    • B.

      Diffusion

    • C.

      Osmosis

    Correct Answer
    B. Diffusion
    Explanation
    Diffusion is the movement of molecules from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration. It occurs due to the random motion of particles and does not require any energy input. This process allows molecules to spread out and reach a state of equilibrium. In contrast, active transport is the movement of molecules against their concentration gradient, requiring energy input. Osmosis is the movement of water molecules across a selectively permeable membrane from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration.

    Tick examples of connective tissue?

    • A.

      Areolar

    • B.

      Cuboidal

    • C.

      Lymphoid

    • D.

      Columnar

    • E.

      Fibrous

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Areolar
    C. Lymphoid
    E. Fibrous
    Explanation
    The examples of connective tissue that can be ticked are areolar, lymphoid, and fibrous. Connective tissue is a type of tissue that provides support and connects different structures in the body. Areolar tissue is a loose connective tissue that is found beneath the skin and between organs. Lymphoid tissue is a type of connective tissue that is involved in the immune response and is found in lymph nodes, tonsils, and spleen. Fibrous tissue is a dense connective tissue that provides strength and support to structures like tendons and ligaments.

    What does the word inguinal mean?

    • A.

      Buttocks

    • B.

      Inner surface of the cheek

    • C.

      Lower limb

    • D.

      Groin

    Correct Answer
    D. Groin
    Explanation
    The word "inguinal" refers to the area of the body known as the groin. The groin is the crease or fold where the lower abdomen meets the inner thigh. It is a common term used in medical and anatomical discussions to describe this specific region of the body.

  • 6. 

    Which directional term best describes this picture

    • A.

      Peripheral

    • B.

      Lateral

    • C.

      Superficial

    • D.

      Anterior

    Correct Answer
    D. Anterior
    Explanation
    The term "anterior" refers to the front or forward direction of an object or organism. In the context of the given picture, if the picture shows a view from the front or the forward-facing side, then the term "anterior" would be the most appropriate directional term to describe it.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following terms refers to the movement of water molecules across a cell membrane?

    • A.

      Osmosis

    • B.

      Active transport

    • C.

      Diffusion

    • D.

      Facilitated diffusion

    Correct Answer
    A. Osmosis
    Explanation
    Osmosis refers to the movement of water molecules across a cell membrane. It is a passive process that occurs when there is a difference in solute concentration between the two sides of the membrane. Water moves from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration in order to equalize the concentration on both sides. This process is crucial for maintaining water balance and regulating the movement of substances in and out of cells.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    In which quadrant does the right lung sit?

    • A.

      RUQ

    • B.

      LUQ

    • C.

      LLQ

    • D.

      RLQ

    Correct Answer
    A. RUQ
    Explanation
    The right lung sits in the right upper quadrant (RUQ) of the body. The lungs are paired organs located in the thoracic cavity, with the right lung being larger and consisting of three lobes. The RUQ is the upper right section of the abdomen, which includes parts of the liver, gallbladder, and intestines.
