    Correct Answer
    D. Cervix, neck
    Explanation
    The term "cervic/o" refers to the cervix, which is the neck of the uterus. This is the correct answer because the other options, bladder, vagina, and ovary, do not accurately represent the meaning of "cervic/o". The cervix is an important part of the female reproductive system, connecting the uterus to the vagina. It plays a crucial role in childbirth and also helps to prevent infections by producing mucus that blocks the entry of bacteria into the uterus.

    The word "coit/o" is derived from the Latin word "coitus" which means "a coming together". This word is often used in medical terminology to refer to the act of sexual intercourse. Therefore, the correct answer "a coming together" accurately describes the meaning of "coit/o".

    Correct Answer
    D. Cul-de-sac
    Explanation
    A cul-de-sac is a dead-end street or a closed-off area with only one entrance and exit. In this context, "culd/o" could be a medical term referring to the cul-de-sac, which is a small pouch-like structure in the female reproductive system. The cul-de-sac is located between the uterus and the rectum, and it is lined with fibrous tissue and muscle. Therefore, the correct answer is cul-de-sac.

    Explanation
    The term "cyst/o" refers to the bladder. It is a combining form used in medical terminology to indicate a relation to or involvement of the bladder. The other options listed, such as breast and female, do not relate to the term "cyst/o" and are therefore incorrect.

    D. Fibrous tissue
    Explanation
    The term "fibr/o" refers to fibrous tissue. It is a combining form used to indicate the presence of fibrous tissue in medical terminology. The other options mentioned in the question, such as "turning," "intercourse," and "rectum," are unrelated to the term "fibr/o." Therefore, the correct answer is fibrous tissue.

    C. Female
    Explanation
    The term "gynec/o" refers to the female reproductive system, specifically the organs and structures related to the female reproductive system. This includes the ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes, and vagina. Therefore, the correct answer is "female" as it relates to the gynec/o term.

      Ovum, egg

    Correct Answer
    C. Womb, uterus
    Explanation
    The term "hyster/o" refers to the womb or uterus, which is the correct answer. The fallopian tubes are not included in the given options, and the vagina is not synonymous with the womb or uterus. "Metr/i" and "metr/o" also relate to the uterus, further supporting the correct answer.

    • D.

      Womb

    Correct Answer
    C. Breast
    Explanation
    The terms "mamm/o" and "mast/o" both refer to the breast. The other options, "rectum" and "ovum," refer to the rectum and egg, respectively. "Womb" is not directly related to the term "mamm/o" or "mast/o." Therefore, the correct answer is "breast."

    Correct Answer
    D. Month,menstruation,menses
    Explanation
    The term "men/o" refers to the month, menstruation, or menses. This term is commonly used in medical contexts to describe the monthly cycle of a woman's reproductive system, which includes the shedding of the uterine lining and the release of an egg from the ovary. The term "men/o" is also associated with the fallopian tube, which is the structure through which the egg travels from the ovary to the uterus.

    • C.

      Ovary

    • D.

      Uterus

    Correct Answer
    B. Ovum, egg
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ovum, egg" because both terms refer to the same thing - the female reproductive cell. The ovum is the mature egg cell that is released from the ovary and travels to the uterus, where it can be fertilized by sperm. Therefore, "ovum, egg" accurately describes the process of the female reproductive system.

    Explanation
    The term "oophor/o" refers to the ovary. In medical terminology, "oophor/o" is used to describe anything related to the ovary. The other options mentioned in the question, such as rectum, muscle, and vagina, are not related to the term "oophor/o" and do not have any connection to the correct answer, which is ovary.

    • D.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The word "pareun/o" refers to lying beside and sexual intercourse. This means that it is associated with the act of being beside someone and engaging in sexual activity. The other options provided, such as "vagina" and "womb, uterus," do not have the same meaning as "pareun/o." Therefore, the correct answer for this question is "lying beside, sexual intercourse."

    Correct Answer
    D. Rectum
    Explanation
    The term "rect/o" refers to the rectum, which is the final section of the large intestine that connects to the anus. The other options mentioned, such as vagina, breast, and ovary, are not related to the term "rect/o" and do not have any connection to the rectum. Therefore, the correct answer is rectum.

    Correct Answer
    D. Fallopian tube
    Explanation
    The term "salping/o" refers to the fallopian tube. The fallopian tubes are a pair of narrow tubes that connect the ovaries to the uterus. They play a crucial role in the reproductive system by allowing the passage of eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. Therefore, "fallopian tube" is the correct answer in this case.

    Correct Answer
    B. Uterus
    Explanation
    The term "uter/o" refers to the uterus, which is a female reproductive organ. It is responsible for housing and nourishing a developing fetus during pregnancy. The other options mentioned, such as "vagina" and "turning," are not directly related to the term "uter/o." Therefore, the correct answer is "uterus."

    Explanation
    The term "vagin/o" refers to the vagina, which is a part of the female reproductive system. It is a muscular canal that connects the uterus to the external opening of the genitalia. The other options mentioned, such as "a coming together," "womb," and "ovary," are not correct explanations for "vagin/o."

    • B.

    • C.

      Rectum

    • D.

      Sexual intercourse

    Correct Answer
    D. Sexual intercourse
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "sexual intercourse" because the other terms listed (venere/o, gynec/o, rectum, and egg) do not directly relate to the concept of sexual intercourse. Venere/o refers to Venus, the Roman goddess of love, and is often used in medical terminology to indicate a sexually transmitted disease. Gynec/o relates to the female reproductive system, rectum refers to the lower part of the digestive system, and egg refers to the female reproductive cell. Therefore, "sexual intercourse" is the only option that directly relates to the given terms.

    D. Turning
    Explanation
    The term "vers/o" is a combining form that refers to turning or changing. In the context of the given options, "muscle," "female," and "breast" do not directly relate to the concept of turning. Therefore, the correct answer is "turning."
