Male And Female Reproductive System Quiz! - Quiz

Welcome, to this Male And Female Reproductive System Quiz! In this quiz, we are going to have a look at the organs that help in keeping our bloodlines flowing and that ensure more and more generations exist long after our lives end – this quiz is based on the reproductive systems! That’s right, here, we’ll test your knowledge on both the reproductive systems, male and female, to get to know just how much you know about human reproduction!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The Seminal Vesicle is:

    • A.

      A muscular tube that passes upward alongside the testes and transports semen.

    • B.

      A sac-like structure attached to the vas deferens and to the side of the bladder.

    • C.

      Controls temperature of testes.

    • D.

      Reduces temperature of testes.

    Correct Answer
    B. A sac-like structure attached to the vas deferens and to the side of the bladder.
    Explanation
    The Seminal Vesicle is a sac-like structure that is attached to the vas deferens and to the side of the bladder. It plays an important role in the production of semen by secreting a fluid that nourishes and provides energy for the sperm. This fluid also helps in the lubrication and transportation of sperm during ejaculation.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    When semen is pushed through and out of a  male's body through the urethra is a process called_______.

    • A.

      Menstruation

    • B.

      Ejaculation

    • C.

      Erection

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Ejaculation
    Explanation
    Ejaculation is the correct answer because it refers to the process of semen being pushed through and out of a male's body through the urethra. Menstruation is the process of shedding the uterine lining in females, erection refers to the process of the penis becoming enlarged and stiff, and "none of these" is not applicable as ejaculation is the correct term for the given process.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is the testis?

    • A.

      Producer and stores of millions of sperm

    • B.

      Producer of male sex hormones

    • C.

      None

    • D.

      Both of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Both of the above
    Explanation
    The testes, also known as testicles, are organs in the male reproductive system that perform two important functions:
    Producer of millions of sperm: The testes contain tiny structures called seminiferous tubules where sperm production (spermatogenesis) occurs. Millions of sperm are produced continuously throughout a man's life, starting at puberty.
    Producer of male sex hormones: The testes also contain specialized cells called Leydig cells that produce testosterone, the primary male sex hormone. Testosterone plays a crucial role in male development, including puberty, muscle growth, bone density, sex drive, and sperm production.
    Therefore, the testes are essential for both sperm production and the production of male sex hormones.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is semen?

    • A.

      A sperm-containing fluid

    • B.

      Sperm-releasing fluid

    • C.

      Sperm-hydration fluid

    • D.

      A pipe where sperm passes through

    Correct Answer
    A. A sperm-containing fluid
    Explanation
    Semen is a fluid that contains sperm, produced by the male reproductive system. It serves as a medium for sperm transport and nourishment, aiding in the fertilization of the female egg during sexual reproduction.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What are the main parts of a penis?

    • A.

      Shaft and glans

    • B.

      Prepuce and eggs

    • C.

      Foreskin and hair

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Shaft and glans
    Explanation
    The main parts of a penis are the shaft and glans. The shaft refers to the long, cylindrical portion of the penis, while the glans is the rounded tip at the end. These two parts are essential for sexual function and play a crucial role in sexual intercourse and stimulation. The other options mentioned, such as prepuce and eggs or foreskin and hair, are not accurate descriptions of the main parts of a penis.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What is puberty?

    • A.

      When the reproductive system starts to produce sex hormones, and when a man's sex organs start to function.

    • B.

      A muscular tube that passes upward alongside the testis and transports semen.

    • C.

      When a man starts to grow hair on his body.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. When the reproductive system starts to produce sex hormones, and when a man's sex organs start to function.
    Explanation
    Puberty is the stage in human development when the reproductive system begins to produce sex hormones and the sex organs start to function. This is the period when individuals experience physical and sexual maturation, including the development of secondary sexual characteristics such as the growth of hair on the body. Therefore, the given answer accurately describes the process of puberty.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is the vulva?

    • A.

      The flaps of skin, covering the vaginal opening.

    • B.

      The holes in the sex area.

    • C.

      External parts of a penis

    • D.

      External parts of a female's reproductive organ.

    Correct Answer
    D. External parts of a female's reproductive organ.
    Explanation
    The vulva refers to the external parts of a female's reproductive organ. It includes the labia majora, labia minora, clitoris, vaginal opening, and urethral opening. These structures play important roles in sexual pleasure, reproduction, and urinary function.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The mons pubis is ___________.

    • A.

      The fleshy area, located above the top of the vaginal opening.

    • B.

      Two pairs of skin flaps surround the vaginal opening.

    • C.

      Both of the above.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. The fleshy area, located above the top of the vaginal opening.
    Explanation
    The mons pubis refers to the fleshy area located above the top of the vaginal opening. This area is covered with pubic hair and serves as a protective cushion during sexual activity. It also plays a role in sexual attraction and arousal. The other options mentioned, such as two pairs of skin flaps surrounding the vaginal opening, are not accurate descriptions of the mons pubis.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The menstrual cycle in when:

    • A.

      A monthly period for girls when they release eggs from their ovaries into the fallopian tube.

    • B.

      Two pairs of skin flaps surround the vaginal opening.

    • C.

      When a female uses her sex hormones.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. A monthly period for girls when they release eggs from their ovaries into the fallopian tube.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A monthly period for girls when they release eggs from their ovaries into the fallopian tube." This answer accurately describes the menstrual cycle in females. During the menstrual cycle, the ovaries release an egg in a process called ovulation. If the egg is fertilized by sperm, it may implant in the uterus and result in pregnancy. If the egg is not fertilized, the lining of the uterus is shed, resulting in menstrual bleeding. This cycle typically occurs once a month and is regulated by hormones.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What are the female sex hormones?

    • A.

      Testosterone and progesterone

    • B.

      Adrenaline

    • C.

      Estrogen & Progesterone

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Estrogen & Progesterone
    Explanation
    Estrogen and progesterone are the female sex hormones. Estrogen is responsible for the development of female secondary sexual characteristics, regulation of the menstrual cycle, and maintenance of pregnancy. Progesterone plays a crucial role in preparing the uterus for pregnancy and maintaining pregnancy. These hormones are produced primarily in the ovaries, although small amounts are also produced in the adrenal glands.
