It is a period of sexual inactivity between estrus cycles. During this time, the queen's reproductive system is not actively preparing for mating or pregnancy.

    Testosterone acts to __________ production of high density lipoproteins and estradiol acts to __________ bone resorption.

    • A.

      Decrease - decrease

    • B.

      Decrease - increase

    • C.

      Increase - decrease

    • D.

      Increase - increase

    Correct Answer
    A. Decrease - decrease
    Explanation
    Testosterone is known to decrease the production of high density lipoproteins (HDL), which are considered "good" cholesterol. On the other hand, estradiol, a form of estrogen, acts to decrease bone resorption, which is the process of breaking down bone tissue. Therefore, the correct answer is "decrease - decrease" as both hormones have a similar effect of decreasing their respective processes.

    Estradiol will act to __________ spinnbarkeit and progesterone will act to __________ cervical mucous ferning.

    • A.

      Decrease - decrease

    • B.

      Decrease - increase

    • C.

      Increase - decrease

    • D.

      Increase - increase

    Correct Answer
    C. Increase - decrease
    Explanation
    Estradiol is a form of estrogen that is responsible for promoting the growth and development of the endometrium and cervical glands. It increases the production of cervical mucus, making it more stretchable and conducive for sperm transport, which is known as spinnbarkeit. On the other hand, progesterone, which is produced after ovulation, acts to decrease the production of cervical mucus and prevents the formation of ferning patterns in the mucus. Therefore, the correct answer is "increase - decrease" as estradiol increases spinnbarkeit while progesterone decreases cervical mucous ferning.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is primarily responsible for __________.

    • A.

      Conversion of cholesterol to pregnenolone

    • B.

      Testosterone production

    • C.

      Spermatogenesis

    • D.

      Maintaining the corpus luteum

    Correct Answer
    C. Spermatogenesis
    Explanation
    FSH is primarily responsible for spermatogenesis, which is the process of sperm cell development. It stimulates the Sertoli cells in the testes to support the maturation of sperm cells and promotes their growth and division. FSH also plays a role in the production of inhibin, a hormone that helps regulate the levels of FSH in the body. This process is essential for male reproductive function and the production of viable sperm cells.

    Rate this question:

      Epididymis

    • B.

      Rete testis

    • C.

      Seminal vesicles

    • D.

      Vas deferens

    Correct Answer
    A. Epididymis
    Explanation
    The correct answer is epididymis. The epididymis is a coiled tube located behind each testicle where sperm is stored and matures. It acts as a storage and maturation site for sperm, allowing them to gain the ability to swim and fertilize an egg.
