    Correct Answer
    A. A
    Explanation
    This area is responsible for moving your right arm. The given answer, A, is likely referring to the primary motor cortex located in the left hemisphere of the brain. This region controls voluntary movements of the body, with each hemisphere controlling the opposite side of the body. Therefore, the primary motor cortex in the left hemisphere is responsible for controlling movements of the right arm.

    • F.

      F

    Correct Answer
    E. E
    Explanation
    Option E is the correct answer because it is stated that "THIS AREA RECEIVES SENSORY INPUT FROM SENSORY RECEPTORS FROM TOUCH." This suggests that the area being referred to is responsible for processing touch sensations. The other options (A, B, C, D, and F) are not mentioned in the given information, so they are not the correct answer.

    C. C
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is C because it is the only option that is grammatically correct and makes sense in the context of the statement. The phrase "THIS AREA ALLOWS YOU TO TASTE" suggests that there is a specific area where one can experience or sample different flavors or sensations. Option C, "Tasting", is the only option that accurately represents this idea.

  • 18. 

    THE BROCA'S AREA IS ONLY FOUND ON ONE HEMISPHERE OF THE BRAIN, SO IF DAMAGED WOULD IMPAIR THE ABILITY OF AN INDIVIDUAL TO SPEAK.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the Broca's area, which is responsible for language production and speech, is indeed found on only one hemisphere of the brain, typically the left hemisphere in right-handed individuals. If this area is damaged, it can result in a condition known as Broca's aphasia, where the individual has difficulty speaking and forming coherent sentences.

    GREY MATTER HAS MANY CELLS CONTAINING MYELIN SHEATH WHICH GIVE IT ITS GREY COLOR.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Grey matter does not contain cells with myelin sheath. Myelin sheath is found in white matter, which is responsible for the white color of that region of the brain. Grey matter, on the other hand, gets its grey color from the presence of neuronal cell bodies, dendrites, and synapses.

    WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING AREAS IS PRIMARILY INVOLVED IN INTELLECTUAL REASONING AND SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR?

    • A.

      POSTERIOR ASSOCIATION AREA

    • B.

      ANTERIOR ASSOCIATION AREA

    • C.

      BROCA'S AREA

    • D.

      OCCIPITAL LOBE

    Correct Answer
    B. ANTERIOR ASSOCIATION AREA
    Explanation
    The anterior association area is primarily involved in intellectual reasoning and socially acceptable behavior. This area of the brain is responsible for higher cognitive functions such as problem-solving, decision-making, and social behavior. It helps in integrating information from various sensory modalities and coordinating complex behaviors. The posterior association area is more involved in perception and recognition of sensory stimuli, while Broca's area is responsible for language production. The occipital lobe is primarily involved in processing visual information.
