It forms at the level of the fifth lumbar vertebra (L5) and enters the thoracic cavity at the level of the eighth thoracic vertebra (T8). This positioning allows it to receive blood from the lower extremities and abdominal organs and transport it back to the heart for oxygenation.

      Vomer

    • B.

      Hyoid

    • C.

      Zygomatic Arch

    • D.

      Sphenoid

    Correct Answer
    A. Vomer
    Explanation
    The bone involved in the nasal septum is the vomer. The vomer is a thin, flat bone that forms the lower part of the nasal septum, separating the left and right nasal cavities. It is located in the midline of the skull and helps to support the nasal passages and maintain their shape. The hyoid bone is not involved in the nasal septum, as it is a U-shaped bone located in the neck. The zygomatic arch is a bony arch that forms the prominence of the cheek, and the sphenoid bone is a complex bone located at the base of the skull.

    Relatively fixed point of muscular attachment?

    • A.

      Insertion

    • B.

      Origin

    • C.

      Belly

    • D.

      Aponeurosis

    Correct Answer
    B. Origin
    Explanation
    The term "origin" refers to the relatively fixed point of muscular attachment. It is the point where the muscle attaches to a bone or a connective tissue structure that does not move during muscle contraction. The origin is typically located closer to the midline or proximal end of the body compared to the insertion point. In contrast, the insertion is the point where the muscle attaches to a bone or a connective tissue structure that moves during muscle contraction. The belly refers to the fleshy part of the muscle, while the aponeurosis is a flat, sheet-like tendon.

    The right vertebral artery is the first "superior" artery off the right subclavian artery after the bifurcation of the brachiocephalic trunk. The vertebral artery runs through the transverse foramina of the cervical vertebrae and supplies blood to the brain and spinal cord. It is an important artery for the posterior circulation of the brain.

    Which vessel feeds the Right Facial Artery?

    • A.

      The Right Internal Carotid Artery

    • B.

      The Right External Carotid Artery

    • C.

      The Brachiocephalic Trunk / Inominate Artery

    • D.

      The Right Mandibular Artery

    Correct Answer
    B. The Right External Carotid Artery
    Explanation
    The right external carotid artery feeds the right facial artery. The external carotid artery is a major blood vessel that supplies blood to the face and neck. It branches off from the common carotid artery and gives rise to several branches, including the facial artery. The facial artery then supplies blood to the structures of the face, including the muscles, skin, and other tissues. Therefore, the correct answer is the right external carotid artery.
