Quiz #5 on bones!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The four types of bones are long, short, flat, and irregular bones. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the four types of bones are indeed long, short, flat, and irregular bones. Long bones, such as the femur and humerus, are longer than they are wide. Short bones, like the bones in the wrist and ankle, are roughly equal in length and width. Flat bones, such as the skull and ribs, are thin and flattened. Irregular bones, like the vertebrae and facial bones, have complex shapes that do not fit into the other three categories. Therefore, the statement is correct.

    • D.

      33

    Correct Answer
    B. 206
    Explanation
    The human body has 206 bones. This is the correct answer because the average adult human skeleton consists of 206 bones. These bones provide structure, support, and protection to the body, allowing us to move and perform various functions.

    The three types of joints are ball and socket, hinge, and pivot. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the three types of joints mentioned, ball and socket, hinge, and pivot, are indeed three common types of joints found in the human body. Ball and socket joints allow for a wide range of motion in multiple directions, hinge joints allow for movement in one direction like a door hinge, and pivot joints allow for rotational movement. These types of joints are essential for the body to perform various movements and functions.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Framework
    C. Movement
    D. Protection
    E. Storage and production
    Explanation
    The skeletal system serves multiple purposes. Firstly, it provides a framework for the body, supporting and giving shape to the muscles and organs. Secondly, it enables movement by providing attachment points for muscles and acting as levers. Thirdly, it protects vital organs such as the brain, heart, and lungs. Additionally, the skeletal system plays a role in storage and production of minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus, which are essential for various bodily functions.

    How many individual vertebrae are in the spine?

    • A.

      12

    • B.

      25

      33

    • D.

      60

    Correct Answer
    C. 33
    Explanation
    The spine is made up of individual vertebrae, which are small bones stacked on top of each other. The correct answer is 33 because the human spine typically consists of 33 vertebrae. These vertebrae are divided into different regions, including the cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back), lumbar (lower back), sacral (pelvic), and coccygeal (tailbone) regions. Each region has a specific number of vertebrae, with the cervical region having 7, the thoracic region having 12, the lumbar region having 5, the sacral region having 5 fused vertebrae, and the coccygeal region having 4 fused vertebrae.

    What are the 3 parts of a bone?

    • A.

      Solid layer

    • B.

      Hollow centre layer

    • C.

      Soft layer

    • D.

      Outer membrane

    • E.

      Boston-cream centre

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Solid layer
    B. Hollow centre layer
    D. Outer membrane
    Explanation
    The three parts of a bone are the solid layer, hollow center layer, and outer membrane. The solid layer refers to the compact bone tissue that provides strength and support. The hollow center layer is known as the medullary cavity, which contains bone marrow and helps in the production of blood cells. The outer membrane is called the periosteum, which covers the bone and provides a protective layer. The other options, Boston-cream center and soft layer, are not correct as they do not accurately represent the parts of a bone.
