Planes and Directions of the Human Body Questions and Answers

  • 1. 

    Which plane is indicated in RED?

    • A.

      Sacral Plane

    • B.

      Vertical Plane

    • C.

      Sagittal plane

    • D.

      Sagacious Plane

    • E.

      Bisecting Plane

    Correct Answer
    C. Sagittal plane
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the Sagittal plane. The Sagittal plane divides the body into left and right halves, and is indicated in red in the given question. The other options, such as the Sacral Plane, Vertical Plane, Sagacious Plane, and Bisecting Plane, are not correct as they do not accurately describe the indicated plane.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which plane is indicated in BLUE?

    • A.

      Coronal Plane

    • B.

      Coronary Plane

    • C.

      Bisecting Plane

    • D.

      Transverse Plane

    • E.

      Saggital Plane

    Correct Answer
    A. Coronal Plane
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the Coronal Plane. The Coronal Plane is a vertical plane that divides the body into front (anterior) and back (posterior) sections. It is also known as the frontal plane. The other options mentioned, such as the Coronary Plane, Bisecting Plane, Transverse Plane, and Sagittal Plane, do not accurately describe the plane indicated in blue.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The head is _____ to the shoulders.

    • A.

      Caudal

    • B.

      Superior

    • C.

      Inferior

    • D.

      Proximal

    Correct Answer
    B. Superior
    Explanation
    The word "superior" means higher or above in position or direction. In the context of the question, the head is positioned higher than the shoulders, making it the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which plane is indicated in GREEN?

    • A.

      Midway Plane

    • B.

      Midline Plane

    • C.

      Saggital Plane

    • D.

      Medial Plane

    • E.

      Transverse Plane

    Correct Answer
    E. Transverse Plane
    Explanation
    The transverse plane is indicated in green because it is a horizontal plane that divides the body into upper and lower sections. It is perpendicular to the sagittal and frontal planes. The other options, such as the midway plane, midline plane, sagittal plane, and medial plane, do not accurately describe the plane indicated in green.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The areas on the front and back of the hand are _________ and _______ respectively.

    • A.

      Volar and dorsal

    • B.

      Dorsal and palmar

    • C.

      Proximal and palmar

    • D.

      Distal and proximal

    • E.

      Dorsal and distal

    Correct Answer
    A. Volar and dorsal
    Explanation
    The areas on the front and back of the hand are volar and dorsal respectively.
    Volar refers to the palm side or the anterior surface of the hand.
    Dorsal refers to the backside or the posterior surface of the hand.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The areas of the hand which are closer to the body are referred to as _____, and those further away are referred to as ______, respectively.

    • A.

      Distal and proximal

    • B.

      Dorsal and proximal

    • C.

      Proximal and distal

    • D.

      Palmar and distal

    Correct Answer
    C. Proximal and distal
    Explanation
    In anatomical terms, "proximal" refers to a position closer to the center of the body or point of attachment, while "distal" refers to a position further away from the center of the body or point of attachment. So, the areas of the hand closer to the body are referred to as "proximal," and those further away are referred to as "distal." This terminology is commonly used in anatomy to describe the relative positions of body parts.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The Transverse Plane divide the body into  _______ and  ______ portions.

    • A.

      Top and bottom

    • B.

      Posterior and anterior

    • C.

      Proximal and distal

    • D.

      Superior and inferior

    • E.

      Lateral and medial

    Correct Answer
    D. Superior and inferior
    Explanation
    The transverse plane divides the body into superior and inferior portions. This means that it separates the body into upper (superior) and lower (inferior) sections.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The Sagittal plane divides the body into ____ and ____. The terms used to describe the distance to this dividing plane are ___ and ___.

    • A.

      Back and front, medial and lateral

    • B.

      Front and back, posterior and anterior

    • C.

      Left and right, medial and lateral

    • D.

      Left and right, posterior and anterior

    • E.

      Left and right, upper and lower

    Correct Answer
    C. Left and right, medial and lateral
    Explanation
    The Sagittal plane divides the body into left and right sides. The terms used to describe the distance to this dividing plane are medial (closer to the midline) and lateral (farther from the midline).

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The coronal plane divides the body into _____ and _____ portions.

    • A.

      Left and right

    • B.

      Posterior and anterior

    • C.

      Above and below

    • D.

      Medial and proximal

    • E.

      Dorsal and caudal

    Correct Answer
    B. Posterior and anterior
    Explanation
    The coronal plane is a vertical plane that divides the body into front (anterior) and back (posterior) portions. This means that it separates the body into two halves, with one half facing forward and the other facing backward.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The terms used to describe areas that are, for instance, close to the surface of the skin or further inside the body are _____ and _____.

    • A.

      Superficial and deep

    • B.

      Inner and outer

    • C.

      Anterior and distal

    • D.

      Proximal and posterior

    • E.

      Shallow and deep

    Correct Answer
    A. Superficial and deep
    Explanation
    The terms "superficial" and "deep" are used to describe areas that are either close to the surface of the skin or further inside the body. "Superficial" refers to something that is near or on the surface, while "deep" refers to something that is further inside or away from the surface. These terms are commonly used in anatomy and medical terminology to describe the location or depth of structures within the body.
