Quiz Is Based On Kinesiology - Quiz

The following quiz is based on Kinesiology.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    This plane divides the body into right and left.

    • A.

      Sagittal

    • B.

      Transverse

    • C.

      Frontal

    Correct Answer
    A. Sagittal
    Explanation
    The plane that divides the body into right and left is called the sagittal plane. This plane runs vertically from front to back, creating two equal halves of the body. The sagittal plane allows for the examination of structures and organs in relation to their placement on the right or left side of the body. It is commonly used in medical imaging and anatomical studies to understand the symmetry and organization of the body.

  • 2. 

    This plane of motion divides the body into front and back.

    • A.

      Transverse

    • B.

      Frontal

    • C.

      Sagittal

    Correct Answer
    B. Frontal
    Explanation
    The frontal plane of motion divides the body into front and back. This plane is perpendicular to the sagittal plane and the transverse plane. It separates the body into anterior (front) and posterior (back) portions, allowing movement in a side-to-side or lateral direction. This plane is commonly involved in movements such as abduction and adduction of limbs, as well as lateral flexion of the spine.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Abduction takes place in the ____________ plane.

    • A.

      Frontal

    • B.

      Sagittal

    • C.

      Transverse

    Correct Answer
    A. Frontal
    Explanation
    Abduction is a movement that occurs in the frontal plane. The frontal plane divides the body into front and back sections. In abduction, a body part moves away from the midline of the body in the frontal plane. This movement is commonly observed in actions such as raising the arms or spreading the legs apart. Sagittal and transverse planes are not associated with abduction movements.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Adduction takes place in the __________ plane.

    • A.

      Frontal

    • B.

      Transverse

    • C.

      Sagittal

    Correct Answer
    A. Frontal
    Explanation
    Adduction is a movement that brings a body part closer to the midline of the body. The frontal plane divides the body into front and back halves, and movements that occur within this plane are called frontal plane movements. Since adduction brings a body part towards the midline, it occurs within the frontal plane. Therefore, the correct answer is "Frontal".

  • 5. 

    Flexion takes place in the ____________ plane.

    • A.

      Frontal

    • B.

      Transverse

    • C.

      Sagittal

    Correct Answer
    C. Sagittal
    Explanation
    Flexion refers to the movement that decreases the angle between two body parts. It typically occurs in the sagittal plane, which divides the body into left and right halves. In the sagittal plane, flexion occurs along the anterior-posterior axis, allowing the body parts to move forward or backward. Therefore, the correct answer is "Sagittal".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Extension takes place in the __________ plane.

    • A.

      Sagittal

    • B.

      Frontal

    • C.

      Transverse

    Correct Answer
    A. Sagittal
    Explanation
    Extension refers to the movement that increases the angle between two body parts. It occurs in the sagittal plane, which divides the body into left and right halves. In the sagittal plane, the movement of extension occurs along the anterior-posterior axis, allowing body parts to move backward or straighten. This plane is perpendicular to the frontal and transverse planes, which involve different types of movements. Therefore, the correct answer is Sagittal.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Kinesiology is the study of _______________.

    • A.

      How the body works

    • B.

      How the body moves

    • C.

      Origins and Insertions

    • D.

      Disease and Illness

    Correct Answer
    B. How the body moves
    Explanation
    Kinesiology is the study of how the body moves. It focuses on the mechanics and dynamics of human movement, including the muscles, bones, and joints involved. This field of study examines various aspects such as body posture, coordination, range of motion, and motor skills. By understanding how the body moves, kinesiologists can analyze and improve movement patterns, prevent injuries, and enhance performance in sports and physical activities.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Lateral rotation takes place in the  ___________ plane of motion.

    • A.

      Sagittal

    • B.

      Frontal

    • C.

      Mid Saggital

    • D.

      Transverse

    Correct Answer
    D. Transverse
    Explanation
    Lateral rotation refers to the movement of a body part away from the midline of the body. This movement occurs in the transverse plane, which divides the body into upper and lower halves. The transverse plane is perpendicular to both the sagittal and frontal planes, making it the correct answer for this question.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Abduction mean to ____________

    • A.

      Move towards midline

    • B.

      Increase the joint angle

    • C.

      Move away from midline

    • D.

      Decrease the joint angle

    Correct Answer
    C. Move away from midline
    Explanation
    Abduction refers to the movement of a body part away from the midline of the body. This movement increases the joint angle between the body part and the midline. Therefore, the correct answer is "move away from midline."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Flexion is _______

    • A.

      An increase in joint angle

    • B.

      A decrease in joint angle

    • C.

      Movement away from midline

    • D.

      Movement towards midline

    Correct Answer
    B. A decrease in joint angle
    Explanation
    Flexion is a decrease in joint angle. It refers to the movement that brings two body parts closer together, typically bending a joint. For example, when you bend your elbow or bring your knee towards your chest, it involves flexion. This movement reduces the angle between the bones at the joint, resulting in a decrease in joint angle.
