Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Provides a place for the nourishment and development of the fetus during pregnancy 

    • A.

      Vulva

    • B.

      Vagina

    • C.

      Ovaries

    • D.

      Uterus

    Correct Answer
    D. Uterus
    Explanation
    The uterus is the correct answer because it is the organ in the female reproductive system that provides a place for the nourishment and development of the fetus during pregnancy. It is where the fertilized egg implants and grows into a baby. The uterus has a thick lining called the endometrium, which is rich in blood vessels and nutrients, providing an ideal environment for the fetus to develop.

  • 2. 

    Serves as ducts to convey the ovum from the ovary to the uterus and to convey spermatozoa from the uterus toward each ovary

    • A.

      Vulva

    • B.

      Ovaries

    • C.

      Fallopian tubes

    • D.

      Uterus

    Correct Answer
    C. Fallopian tubes
    Explanation
    The fallopian tubes serve as ducts to convey the ovum from the ovary to the uterus and to convey spermatozoa from the uterus toward each ovary. These tubes are responsible for the transportation of the egg released from the ovary towards the uterus, where fertilization can occur if sperm is present. They also help in the movement of sperm towards the egg for fertilization.

    Produces ova and hormones

    • A.

      Uterus

      Ovaries

    • D.

      Clitoris

    Correct Answer
    C. Ovaries
    Explanation
    The ovaries are responsible for producing ova, which are the eggs necessary for reproduction. Additionally, the ovaries also produce hormones such as estrogen and progesterone, which play a crucial role in regulating the menstrual cycle and supporting pregnancy. Therefore, the ovaries are the correct answer as they fulfill both functions of producing ova and hormones.

  • 4. 

    Female organ of copulation (sexual intercourse), serves as a passageway for the discharge of menstruation and a passageway for the birth of a fetus  

    • A.

      Breasts

    • B.

      Vagina

    • C.

      Ovaries

    • D.

      Uterus

    Correct Answer
    B. Vagina
    Explanation
    The vagina is the correct answer because it is the female organ of copulation, meaning it is involved in sexual intercourse. It also serves as a passageway for the discharge of menstruation and for the birth of a fetus. The ovaries produce eggs and the uterus is the organ where the fetus develops, but neither of them serve as a passageway for menstruation or sexual intercourse. The breasts are not involved in sexual intercourse or the discharge of menstruation.

    External female genitalia

    • A.

      Vulva

    • B.

      Vagina

    • C.

      Ovaries

    • D.

      Uterus

    Correct Answer
    A. Vulva
    Explanation
    The vulva refers to the external female genitalia, including the labia, clitoris, vaginal opening, and urethral opening. It is the visible part of the female reproductive system and plays a crucial role in sexual pleasure and reproduction. The term "vulva" is often used interchangeably with "vagina," but they are not the same. The vagina is the muscular canal that connects the vulva to the uterus. The ovaries, on the other hand, are the reproductive organs that produce eggs and hormones, while the uterus is the organ where a fertilized egg implants and develops into a fetus.

    The vestibule serves as the entrance to the urethra, the vagina, and the two excretory ducts of Bartholin's glands. It is the area located between the labia minora, which protects these openings and provides a pathway for urine and menstrual blood to exit the body. The vestibule also contains the openings of the Skene's glands, which secrete fluid during sexual arousal.

    Explanation
    The clitoris is the correct answer because it is a highly sensitive organ that contains erectile tissue, similar to the penis in males. During sexual arousal, the clitoris becomes engorged with blood and can produce pleasurable sensations when stimulated. It is an important part of the female reproductive system and plays a key role in sexual pleasure.

    Following childbirth, mammary glands produce milk

    • A.

      Vestibule

    • B.

      Clitoris

    • C.

      Breast

    • D.

      Vagina

    Correct Answer
    C. Breast
    Explanation
    After childbirth, the mammary glands in a woman's breasts produce milk. This is a natural process that occurs to nourish and feed the newborn baby. The breasts undergo hormonal changes during pregnancy which prepare them for milk production. Once the baby is born, the hormone prolactin stimulates the mammary glands to produce milk. The milk is then released through the nipple for the baby to consume. The breast is the correct answer because it is the specific anatomical structure where milk production occurs.
