Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The site where the sperm and egg first meet.

    Explanation
    The fallopian tube is the site where the sperm and egg first meet. It is a part of the female reproductive system and plays a crucial role in fertilization. The fallopian tube is responsible for capturing the released egg from the ovary and providing a suitable environment for fertilization to occur. Once the sperm enters the fallopian tube, it can meet and penetrate the egg, leading to fertilization. Therefore, the fallopian tube(s) is the correct answer for the site where the sperm and egg first meet.

    3-5" long passageway into the female reproductive system.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "vaginal canal, vagina." The vaginal canal is a 3-5" long passageway that leads into the female reproductive system. It connects the uterus to the external opening of the vagina. The vagina, on the other hand, is the muscular tube that serves as the birth canal during childbirth and also allows for the insertion of the penis during sexual intercourse. Both terms refer to the same anatomical structure and are used interchangeably.

  • 4. 

    Place where fertilized egg implants and grows during pregnancy.

    Explanation
    The uterus is the place where a fertilized egg implants and grows during pregnancy. It is a hollow, muscular organ located in the female pelvis. The inner lining of the uterus, called the endometrium, thickens and prepares for the implantation of a fertilized egg. If fertilization occurs, the embryo implants itself into the endometrium and begins to develop into a fetus. The uterus provides a nourishing environment for the growing fetus and expands to accommodate its growth throughout pregnancy.

    The scientific name for a fertilized egg.

    Explanation
    A fertilized egg is referred to as a zygote in scientific terminology. After fertilization, when the sperm and egg combine, they form a zygote which marks the beginning of a new organism's development. The zygote contains the complete set of genetic information from both parents and undergoes cell division to eventually form an embryo. This term is commonly used in the field of biology to describe the earliest stage of development in sexually reproducing organisms.

    Small but expandable opening between the uterus and vaginal canal through which sperm, menstrual blood and a baby can pass.

    Explanation
    The cervix is a small but expandable opening between the uterus and vaginal canal. It allows for the passage of sperm during intercourse, menstrual blood during menstruation, and a baby during childbirth. The cervix plays a crucial role in reproduction and serves as a protective barrier between the uterus and the outside environment.

    A thin tissue which stretches across the opening of the vagina.

    Explanation
    The hymen is a thin tissue that stretches across the opening of the vagina. It is commonly associated with virginity, as it can sometimes tear or break during sexual intercourse or other physical activities. However, it is important to note that the presence or absence of a hymen does not determine a person's sexual history or experience. The hymen can vary in appearance and flexibility among individuals, and it can also be stretched or torn through various non-sexual activities such as exercise or the use of tampons.

    External organ which is highly sensitive to stimulation

    Explanation
    The clitoris is an external organ that is highly sensitive to stimulation. It is located at the top of the vulva, above the urethra. The clitoris contains a dense network of nerve endings, making it extremely sensitive to touch and sexual stimulation. When stimulated, the clitoris can produce pleasurable sensations and contribute to sexual arousal and orgasm.

    The inner "lips" that surround the opening of the vagina. (the word "inner" cannot be used in your answer)

    Explanation
    The term "labia minora" refers to the lips that encircle the vaginal opening. These lips are located inside the outer labia and are smaller in size compared to them. They serve to protect the sensitive vaginal area and can vary in shape, size, and color among individuals.

    The outer "lips" that surround the opening of the vagina. (the word "outer" cannot be used in your answer)

    Explanation
    The term "labia majora" refers to the fleshy folds of skin that encircle the vaginal opening. These folds are located on the outer part of the female genitalia and serve as a protective barrier for the internal reproductive organs. The labia majora are larger and more prominent compared to the inner folds known as labia minora.

    Passageway for urine and semen to exit the male body.

    Explanation
    The urethra is a tube that serves as a passageway for both urine and semen to exit the male body. It connects the bladder to the external urethral orifice and allows for the transportation of urine from the bladder and semen from the reproductive organs. This structure is essential for the proper functioning of the male urinary and reproductive systems.

  • 12. 

    Opening through which urine exits the female body.

    Explanation
    The urethra is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. The urethral opening refers to the specific location where the urethra opens to allow urine to exit the female body. Both terms, urethra and urethral opening, are correct in describing the opening through which urine exits the female body.

    Pouch which controls temperature of and protects the testicles

    Explanation
    The scrotum is a pouch of skin that houses the testicles. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the temperature of the testicles, which is essential for proper sperm development and function. The scrotum adjusts its position to regulate the temperature, moving the testicles closer to the body when it's cold and further away when it's warm. Additionally, the scrotum acts as a protective covering for the testicles, shielding them from potential injury or damage.

    Tubes through which the sperm travel from the epididymis to the other reproductive organs

    Explanation
    The vas deferens is a tube that carries sperm from the epididymis to the other reproductive organs. It is a long, muscular tube that transports sperm during ejaculation. The sperm mature and are stored in the epididymis, and when ejaculation occurs, they are propelled through the vas deferens towards the urethra. This tube plays a crucial role in the transportation of sperm and is an essential part of the male reproductive system.

  • 15. 

    The organ which produces sperm

    Explanation
    The correct answer is testicles, testicle, testes. The testicles, also known as testes, are the male reproductive organs responsible for producing sperm. They are located in the scrotum, outside the body, to maintain a lower temperature necessary for sperm production. The testicles produce and store sperm cells, which are essential for sexual reproduction. Therefore, all three terms - testicles, testicle, and testes - refer to the same organ responsible for sperm production in males.

    Large gland which secretes liquid that protect sperm once it enters the vagina

    Explanation
    The correct answer is the prostate gland. The prostate gland is a large gland located below the bladder in males. It produces a fluid that mixes with sperm to form semen. This fluid helps to nourish and protect the sperm once it enters the vagina during sexual intercourse.

    A sensitive external organ which is made of spongy tissue

    Explanation
    The penis is a sensitive external organ made of spongy tissue. It is responsible for several functions, including sexual reproduction and urination. The spongy tissue inside the penis fills with blood during sexual arousal, causing an erection. This allows for sexual intercourse and ejaculation. The sensitivity of the penis is due to the presence of numerous nerve endings, making it a key organ for sexual pleasure and stimulation.

    These excrete fluid which nourish the sperm and help the swim

    Explanation
    The seminal vesicles are glands located near the prostate gland in males. They produce a fluid that is rich in fructose, prostaglandins, and other substances. This fluid helps to nourish and energize the sperm, providing them with the necessary nutrients for their journey through the female reproductive system. Additionally, the fluid from the seminal vesicles helps to neutralize the acidity of the urethra and the female reproductive tract, creating a more favorable environment for the sperm to swim in. Overall, the fluid produced by the seminal vesicles plays a crucial role in supporting and enhancing the motility of sperm.

    A coil shaped organ that stores sperm

    Explanation
    The epididymis is a coil-shaped organ that is responsible for storing sperm. It is located on the back of each testicle and serves as a site for the maturation and storage of sperm before they are ejaculated. The epididymis plays a crucial role in the reproductive system, allowing the sperm to gain motility and become capable of fertilizing an egg.
