Ch 14 Blood Component Proportions - Quiz

Students need to be able to identify blood components and their proportions.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Formed elements in the blood are made up of 3 things, what are they?

    • A.

      Proteins, water and other solutes

    • B.

      Platelets, WBC's, RBC's

    • C.

      Bunnies, rabbits and ducks

    Correct Answer
    B. Platelets, WBC's, RBC's
    Explanation
    The correct answer is platelets, WBC's, and RBC's. Formed elements in the blood refer to the cellular components of blood, which include platelets, white blood cells (WBC's), and red blood cells (RBC's). These elements play crucial roles in various physiological processes, such as clotting, immune response, and oxygen transport.

    The graph above shows the components of PLASMA.  What is label A?

    • A.

      Water

    • B.

      Proteins

    • C.

      Other solutes

    • D.

      Small ducks

    Correct Answer
    B. Proteins
    Explanation
    Label A on the graph represents proteins. The graph is showing the components of plasma, which is the liquid part of blood. Proteins are an important component of plasma and play various roles, such as transporting molecules, maintaining osmotic balance, and contributing to blood clotting.

    Blood plasma is made up of 3 things, what are they?

    • A.

      Proteins, water and other solutes

    • B.

      Platelets, WBC's, RBC's

    • C.

      Bunnies, rabbits and ducks

    Correct Answer
    A. Proteins, water and other solutes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is proteins, water, and other solutes. Blood plasma is the liquid component of blood and it contains various proteins, such as albumin and globulins, which help maintain osmotic pressure and transport nutrients and hormones. It also consists of water, which acts as a solvent and helps in maintaining the fluid balance in the body. Additionally, blood plasma contains other solutes like electrolytes, hormones, waste products, and gases.

    The graph above shows the components of PLASMA.  What is label B?

    • A.

      Water

    • B.

      Proteins

    • C.

      Other solutes

    • D.

      Small ducks

    Correct Answer
    A. Water
    Explanation
    Label B in the graph represents water. This can be inferred from the fact that water is one of the main components of plasma, along with proteins and other solutes. The graph is likely illustrating the composition of plasma, with label B specifically indicating the presence of water.

    The graph above shows the components of PLASMA.  What is label C?

    • A.

      Water

    • B.

      Proteins

    • C.

      Other solutes

    • D.

      Small ducks

    Correct Answer
    C. Other solutes
    Explanation
    Label C on the graph represents other solutes in plasma. This refers to all the other substances present in plasma apart from water and proteins. These solutes include electrolytes, hormones, waste products, nutrients, gases, and various other molecules that are dissolved in plasma.

  • 6. 

    The graph above illustrates FORMED ELEMENTS in blood.  What is A?

    • A.

      WBCs

    • B.

      RBCs

    • C.

      Platelets

    • D.

      Bunnies!

    Correct Answer
    B. RBCs
    Explanation
    The correct answer is RBCs. The graph shows the formed elements in blood, and A represents red blood cells (RBCs). RBCs are responsible for carrying oxygen to the body's tissues and removing carbon dioxide. They are the most abundant cells in the blood and have a characteristic biconcave shape.

      Platelets

    • D.

      Bunnies!

    Correct Answer
    A. WBCs
    Explanation
    The correct answer is WBCs. The graph above represents the formed elements in blood, and C refers to white blood cells (WBCs). WBCs are an essential part of the immune system and are responsible for defending the body against infections and foreign substances. They play a crucial role in the body's defense mechanism by identifying and destroying pathogens, producing antibodies, and regulating the immune response.

      55%

    • D.

      95%

    Correct Answer
    C. 55%
    Explanation
    Plasma is the liquid component of blood that carries nutrients, hormones, and waste products. It makes up about 55% of the total volume of blood. This means that if you were to draw a tube of blood from a patient, approximately 55% of that blood would be plasma.
