The Chambers Of The Heart - Quiz

The Atria and Ventricles have specific functions within the heart. Two are designed to pump oxygenated blood while the other two pumps deoxygenated blood in and out of the heart. This quiz tests your knowledge on the four chambers of the heart as well as the valves that allow the blood to flow through the chambers. Give it a shot!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The human heart has _________________chambers.

    • A.

      3

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      4

    • D.

      6

    • E.

      2

    Correct Answer
    C. 4
    Explanation
    The human heart has four chambers. It consists of two atria and two ventricles. The atria receive blood from the veins and pump it into the ventricles. The ventricles then pump the blood out of the heart and into the arteries. This four-chambered structure allows for efficient separation of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood, ensuring proper circulation throughout the body.

    The upper chambers of the human heart are called the ___________________.

    • A.

      Valves

    • B.

      Ventricles

    • C.

      Pulmonary

    • D.

      Atrium

    • E.

      Artery

    Correct Answer
    D. Atrium
    Explanation
    The upper chambers of the human heart are called the atrium. The atrium receives blood from various parts of the body and transfers it to the lower chambers, called ventricles. The atrium plays a crucial role in the circulation of blood by ensuring that oxygenated and deoxygenated blood is properly separated and directed to the appropriate areas of the heart.

  • 3. 

    The lower chambers of the heart are called the___________________.

    • A.

      Valves

    • B.

      Ventricles

    • C.

      Pulmonary

    • D.

      Atrium

    • E.

      Artery

    Correct Answer
    B. Ventricles
    Explanation
    The lower chambers of the heart are called ventricles. The heart has four chambers - two atria and two ventricles. The atria receive blood from the body and lungs, while the ventricles pump blood out to the rest of the body. The ventricles have thicker walls than the atria because they need to generate enough force to pump blood throughout the body.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Oxygen rich blood flows from the lungs into what chamber?

    • A.

      Right atrium

    • B.

      Left atrium

    • C.

      Right ventricle

    • D.

      Left ventricle

    • E.

      Aorta

    Correct Answer
    B. Left atrium
    Explanation
    The left atrium is the chamber that receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs. It is responsible for pumping this oxygenated blood into the left ventricle, which then pumps it out to the rest of the body through the aorta. The right atrium, on the other hand, receives deoxygenated blood from the body and pumps it into the right ventricle, which then sends it to the lungs to be oxygenated. Therefore, the left atrium is the correct answer in this case.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Carbon dioxide rich blood enters the heart through what chamber?

    • A.

      Right atrium

    • B.

      Left atrium

    • C.

      Right ventricle

    • D.

      Left ventricle

    • E.

      Aorta

    Correct Answer
    A. Right atrium
    Explanation
    The right atrium receives carbon dioxide rich blood from the body through the superior and inferior vena cava. It is the first chamber that the blood enters after returning from the body. The right atrium then contracts, pushing the blood into the right ventricle, which pumps it to the lungs for oxygenation. Therefore, the correct answer is the right atrium.
