    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Ovulation
    Explanation
    Ovulation is the correct answer because it accurately describes the process in which a woman's egg is released from her ovaries and travels to her fallopian tube. Ovulation typically occurs once every 28 days and is necessary for fertilization to take place. The other options, "Ovumation," "Ovualte Cycle," and "Egg Drop," are not correct terms and do not accurately describe the process of the egg being released from the ovaries.

    A. Zygote
    Explanation
    After a single sperm has penetrated the egg, fertilization occurs, resulting in the formation of a zygote. A zygote is the initial stage of a new organism, formed by the fusion of the sperm and egg. It contains the complete set of genetic information needed to develop into a fully formed individual. Therefore, the correct answer is "Zygote."

      Ectopic Pregnancy

    Correct Answer
    D. Ectopic Pregnancy
    Explanation
    After fertilization, the egg normally travels down the fallopian tubes into the uterus where it implants and grows. However, if the egg implants in the fallopian tube instead of the uterus, it is called an ectopic pregnancy. This can lead to serious complications for the woman and the pregnancy cannot continue in the fallopian tube. Therefore, the correct answer is Ectopic Pregnancy.

    C. Umbilical Cord
    Explanation
    The baby receives nutrients from its mother through the umbilical cord. The umbilical cord connects the baby to the placenta, which is attached to the mother's uterus. The placenta acts as a bridge between the mother and the baby, allowing nutrients and oxygen to pass from the mother's bloodstream to the baby's bloodstream through the umbilical cord. This cord also carries waste products from the baby back to the mother for elimination.

      Eighth Month

    Correct Answer
    A. Fifth Month
    Explanation
    During the first trimester, the baby is still too small and the movements are not strong enough for the mother to feel them. It is usually in the second trimester when the baby grows and becomes more active, allowing the mother to feel the movements. The fifth month falls within the second trimester, making it the correct answer.

    • D.

      Sixth Month

    Correct Answer
    D. Sixth Month
    Explanation
    During the sixth month of pregnancy, a fetus can open its eyes. This is because by this stage of development, the fetus's eyelids have fully formed and are no longer fused shut. The opening of the eyes allows the fetus to begin practicing the blinking reflex and also helps in the development of the visual system.

      Temperature Regulating Brain Cells

    Correct Answer
    B. Fat Cells
    Explanation
    During the ninth month of pregnancy, fat cells form on the fetus which allows it to regulate its body temperature and be born safely. These fat cells act as insulation and help to keep the baby warm after birth. If the baby is born before these fat cells are fully developed, it would have difficulty in regulating its body temperature and would need to spend time in an incubator to maintain a stable temperature.
