    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Penis, scrotum, prostate
    B. Testis, spermatic cord
    C. Seminal vesicle, ejaculatory ducts
    Explanation
    The male genitalia are composed of various structures that play different roles in reproduction and sexual function. The penis is the external organ responsible for sexual intercourse and urination. The scrotum is a pouch of skin that holds and protects the testes, which produce sperm and male sex hormones. The prostate gland is a walnut-sized gland that produces fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. The spermatic cord is a structure that contains blood vessels, nerves, and the vas deferens, which carries sperm from the testes to the urethra. The seminal vesicles produce seminal fluid that mixes with sperm to form semen, and the ejaculatory ducts transport semen from the seminal vesicles to the urethra.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    What dilates, and what constricts during a erection?

    • A.

      Penile arteries, renal veins

    • B.

      Renal veins, penile arteries

    • C.

      Veins, arteries

    • D.

      Penile arteries, veins

    Correct Answer
    D. Penile arteries, veins
    Explanation
    During an erection, the penile arteries dilate, meaning they expand in diameter to allow more blood flow into the penis. This increased blood flow is essential for achieving and maintaining an erection. On the other hand, the veins in the penis constrict, meaning they narrow, to prevent blood from leaving the penis too quickly. This combination of dilated arteries and constricted veins helps to trap blood in the penis, resulting in a firm erection.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Why do the veins constrict?

    • A.

      To slow blood inflow

    • B.

      To speed blood outflow

    • C.

      To slow blood outflow

    Correct Answer
    C. To slow blood outflow
    Explanation
    The veins constrict in order to slow down the outflow of blood. This constriction helps in maintaining blood pressure and preventing excessive blood loss. When the veins constrict, the diameter of the blood vessels decreases, which reduces the volume of blood flowing out of them. This mechanism is particularly important in situations where the body needs to conserve blood, such as during injury or hemorrhage. By slowing down the outflow of blood, the veins assist in maintaining a stable circulation and preventing hypovolemia.

      Raphe

    Correct Answer
    A. Dartos muscle
    Explanation
    The scrotal sac is divided by a septum called the scrotal septum, and it is composed of the dartos muscle. The dartos muscle is a layer of smooth muscle fibers that surrounds the scrotum and helps regulate the temperature of the testicles by contracting and relaxing. It also aids in the movement and positioning of the testicles. The dartos fascia and scrotal tissue are also present in the scrotal sac, but they do not specifically divide the sac like the dartos muscle does. The raphe is a line of tissue that runs along the scrotum, but it does not divide the sac either.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    What does the dartos muscle do?

    • A.

      Contracts and wrinkles the skin of the scrotum

    • B.

  • 30. 

    Which testis is often lower?

    • A.

      Right

    • B.

      Left

    • C.

      Neither

    Correct Answer
    B. Left
    Explanation
    The left testis is often lower because of anatomical differences. The left testis usually descends lower than the right testis during fetal development. This is due to the position of the left testicular vein, which is longer and enters the left renal vein at a higher point. As a result, the left testis is pulled downwards, causing it to be lower than the right testis in most individuals.

    Correct Answer
    B. Tunica albuginea
    Explanation
    The correct answer is tunica albuginea. The tunica albuginea is a white fibrous structure that covers the testicle and divides it into lobules. These lobules contain seminiferous tubules, which are responsible for the production of sperm. The tunica albuginea provides support and protection to the testicle, and it also helps to maintain the shape and structure of the testes.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    Forms a fibrous sac encasing the testis?

    • A.

      Tunica vaginalis

    • B.

      Tunica albuginea

    Correct Answer
    A. Tunica vaginalis
    Explanation
    The tunica vaginalis is a serous membrane that covers the testis and forms a fibrous sac around it. It helps to protect and support the testis. The tunica albuginea, on the other hand, is a dense fibrous capsule that lies beneath the tunica vaginalis and provides structural support to the testis. However, it does not form a fibrous sac encasing the testis like the tunica vaginalis does. Therefore, the correct answer is Tunica vaginalis.

    What two types of cells does the functional unit have?

    • A.

      Sertoli cells

    • B.

      Spermatogenic cells

    • C.

      Spermatids

    • D.

      Epiderm cells

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Sertoli cells
    B. Spermatogenic cells
    Explanation
    The functional unit referred to in the question is most likely the seminiferous tubule, which is the site of sperm production in the testes. Sertoli cells are essential for supporting and nourishing the developing sperm cells, while spermatogenic cells are the cells that undergo meiosis and differentiation to form mature sperm cells. Therefore, both Sertoli cells and spermatogenic cells are present in the functional unit of the seminiferous tubule. Epidermal cells are not involved in sperm production and spermatids are the immediate precursors to sperm cells, not distinct cell types.

    Correct Answer
    A. The most primitive form of germ cell, lying dormant until puberty
    Explanation
    Spermatogonia refers to the most primitive form of germ cells in males. These cells remain dormant until puberty, when they begin the process of spermatogenesis, leading to the production of sperm. This explanation clarifies that spermatogonia are not the least primitive form of germ cells and are not related to kidney evolution.

    What do spermatogenic cells do?

    • A.

      Produce testosterone

    • B.

      Produce smegma

    • C.

      Produce sperm

    Correct Answer
    C. Produce sperm
    Explanation
    Spermatogenic cells are responsible for producing sperm. These cells undergo a process called spermatogenesis, which involves the development and maturation of sperm cells. Through this process, spermatogenic cells produce and release mature sperm cells that are capable of fertilizing an egg during sexual reproduction. Therefore, the correct answer is "produce sperm."

    What do sertoli cells do?

    • A.

      Provide nourishment for the maturing germ cells

    • B.

      Manufacture sperm

    • C.

      Produce semen

    • D.

      Produce testosterone

    Correct Answer
    A. Provide nourishment for the maturing germ cells
    Explanation
    Sertoli cells are specialized cells found in the testes that play a crucial role in supporting the development and maturation of sperm cells. They provide nourishment to the developing germ cells by supplying them with essential nutrients and removing waste products. This nourishment is essential for the proper growth and maturation of sperm cells, ensuring their viability and functionality. Sertoli cells also create a protective environment for the developing germ cells and help in regulating the process of spermatogenesis. Therefore, their main function is to provide nourishment and support for the maturing germ cells.

    Germ cells undergo maturation first to primary and then to secondary?

    • A.

      Spermatocytes

    • B.

      Spermatids

    • C.

      Sperm cells

    Correct Answer
    A. Spermatocytes
    Explanation
    Germ cells undergo maturation first to primary and then to secondary spermatocytes. This process occurs during spermatogenesis, the process of sperm cell development. Spermatocytes are the intermediate stage between germ cells and spermatids. After maturation, secondary spermatocytes further divide to form spermatids, which eventually develop into fully mature sperm cells. Therefore, spermatocytes are the correct answer as they are the stage that follows the maturation of germ cells.

    • A.

      Spermatids

    • B.

      Sperm

    • C.

      Ureter

    Correct Answer
    A. Spermatids
    Explanation
    Spermatocytes are the cells in the testes that undergo meiosis to produce spermatids. Spermatids are immature sperm cells that still need to undergo further maturation before they can fertilize an egg. Therefore, the correct answer is spermatids.

    Spermatids turn into?

    • A.

      Mature sperm

    • B.

      Stones

    • C.

      Spermatila

    Correct Answer
    A. Mature sperm
    Explanation
    Spermatids are immature male germ cells that undergo a process called spermiogenesis to develop into mature sperm. During spermiogenesis, spermatids undergo structural and functional changes, including the formation of a head, midpiece, and tail. These changes enable the spermatids to acquire the ability to swim and fertilize an egg. Therefore, the correct answer is "mature sperm."

    Rate this question:

  • 46. 

    The two functions of the testicles are?

    • A.

      Production of sperm and testosterone

    • B.

      Production of sperm and testoseoerone

    • C.

      Transportation of sperm to the vagina

    Correct Answer
    A. Production of sperm and testosterone
    Explanation
    The testicles have two main functions: the production of sperm and the production of testosterone. Sperm production occurs within the seminiferous tubules of the testicles, while testosterone is produced by specialized cells called Leydig cells. Testosterone is a hormone that plays a crucial role in the development of male reproductive organs, secondary sexual characteristics, and overall sexual function. Therefore, the correct answer is the production of sperm and testosterone.

    • C.

      Ejaculatory duct

    Correct Answer
    B. Epididymis
    Explanation
    The comma-shaped structure attached to the posterior border of each testis is the epididymis. The epididymis is responsible for storing and maturing sperm cells before they are transported to the vas deferens for ejaculation. It plays a crucial role in the reproductive system by providing a suitable environment for sperm to develop and gain motility.

    • D.

      Storage of seminal fluid

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Maturation of sperm
    B. Storage
    C. Transportation of sperm
    Explanation
    The epididymis is a coiled tube located on the back of each testicle that serves multiple functions. It is responsible for the maturation of sperm, allowing them to become fully motile and capable of fertilization. The epididymis also acts as a storage site for sperm, where they can be stored for several weeks until ejaculation occurs. In addition, the epididymis aids in the transportation of sperm, helping to propel them from the testicles to the vas deferens during ejaculation.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. A tube connecting the epididymis and the ejaculation duct
    C. Transports sperm
    D. Stores sperm
    Explanation
    The Vas deferens is a tube that connects the epididymis (where sperm is stored and matures) to the ejaculation duct. It is responsible for transporting sperm from the testis to the urethra during ejaculation. Additionally, the Vas deferens also has the ability to store sperm for a certain period of time before ejaculation occurs.
