      Aden-

    Correct Answer
    B. Atri-
    Explanation

    • A.

      Arteri (o)-

    • B.

      Fibr (o)-

    • C.

      Articul (o)-

    Correct Answer
    C. Articul (o)-
    Explanation
    The prefix "articul(o)-" refers to joints, specifically the point where two bones come together. In this context, "joint" is the only term that relates to the concept of articulation. The other options, "arteri(o)-" and "fibr(o)-," have different meanings unrelated to joints. Therefore, the correct answer is "articul(o)-."

    • C.

      Articul (o)-

    Correct Answer
    A. Arteri (o)-
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "arteri (o)-". This is because the term "arteri (o)-" refers to the arteries, which are blood vessels that carry oxygenated blood away from the heart to the rest of the body. The other options, "fibr (o)-" and "articul (o)-", do not pertain to arteries and are therefore incorrect.

    Correct Answer
    C. Cerebr (o)-, encephal (o)-
    Explanation
    The given answer, cerebr (o)-, encephal (o)-, refers to terms related to the brain. "Cerebr(o)-" is a combining form that means "brain," while "encephal(o)-" also refers to the brain. Therefore, these terms are the most relevant and appropriate in the context of the word "brain" provided in the question.

      Cardi (o)-, cor, cordi-

    • C.

      Atri-

    Correct Answer
    B. Cardi (o)-, cor, cordi-
    Explanation
    The given answer options all relate to the heart. "Cardi(o)-" is a prefix meaning "heart," while "cor" and "cordi-" are root words that also refer to the heart. "Atri-" is not related to the heart, so it is not the correct answer. Therefore, the correct answer is "cardi(o)-, cor, cordi-."

    Rate this question:

  • 7.

    • A.

      Cerebell (o)-

    • B.

      Cerebr (o)-, encephal (o)-

    • C.

      Cox-, ischio-

    Correct Answer
    A. Cerebell (o)-
    Explanation
    The term "cerebell(o)-" refers to the cerebellum, which is a part of the brain responsible for coordinating movement, balance, and posture. The other word parts "cerebr(o)-" and "encephal(o)-" also relate to the brain, while "cox-" and "ischio-" pertain to the hip joint and ischium bone respectively. Therefore, the correct answer is "cerebell(o)-" because it specifically relates to the cerebellum.

    • B.

      Chondr (i) (o)-

    • C.

      Cholecyst-

    Correct Answer
    C. Cholecyst-
    Explanation
    The term "cholecyst-" refers to the gallbladder. The other word parts in the question, "cyst" and "chondr," are not directly related to the gallbladder. Therefore, the correct answer is "cholecyst-" as it specifically pertains to the gallbladder.

    Cartilage

    • A.

      Cyst (i) (o)-

    • B.

      Chondr (i) (o)-

    • C.

      Cholecyst-

    Correct Answer
    B. Chondr (i) (o)-
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "chondr (i) (o)-". The word "chondr" refers to cartilage, which is the connective tissue found in various parts of the body. The suffix "-i" indicates inflammation, while the suffix "-o" indicates a condition or disease. Therefore, "chondr (i) (o)-" would refer to inflammation or a condition related to cartilage. The other options, "cyst" and "cholecyst-", do not relate to cartilage.

      Col-, colo-, colono-

    Correct Answer
    C. Col-, colo-, colono-

    The correct answer is "col-, colo-, colono-". These prefixes all relate to the colon, which is a part of the digestive system. The prefix "col-" refers to the colon in general, while "colo-" specifically refers to the large intestine, of which the colon is a part. "Colono-" also refers to the colon, but is often used in medical terminology to indicate a specific condition or procedure involving the colon.

    Correct Answer
    C. Cox-, ischio-
    Explanation
    The correct answer is cox-, ischio-. These prefixes are commonly used in medical terminology to describe structures related to the hip joint. "Cox-" refers to the hip joint itself, while "ischio-" refers to the ischium bone, which is part of the pelvis and forms the posterior portion of the hip joint. Therefore, the correct answer indicates the prefixes that are specifically related to the hip joint.

    • C.

      Cerebell (o)-

    Correct Answer
    A. Colp (o)-, vagin-
    Explanation
    The correct answer is colp (o)-, vagin-. The term "colp-" refers to the vagina, while "vagin-" also refers to the vagina. Both terms are used to describe different aspects or conditions related to the female reproductive organ. Therefore, the answer colp (o)-, vagin- is the most appropriate as it includes both terms that specifically relate to the vagina.

      Cost (o)-.. pleur (o)-, pleur (a)

    Correct Answer
    C. Cost (o)-.. pleur (o)-, pleur (a)
    Explanation
    The given answer "cost (o)-.. pleur (o)-, pleur (a)" refers to the combining forms used to describe the ribs and the pleura. "Cost(o)-" refers to the ribs, while "pleur(o)-" refers to the pleura. The addition of "-a" at the end of "pleur" indicates that it is the combining form for the adjective form of pleura. Therefore, the answer correctly describes the ribs and the pleura in terms of their combining forms.

      Atri-

    Correct Answer
    B. Crani (o)-

      Fibr-

    Correct Answer
    A. Cyst (i) (o)-
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cyst (i) (o)-". The term "cyst" refers to a fluid-filled sac or pouch in the body. The prefix "i" indicates inflammation, and the prefix "o" indicates a condition involving the urinary system. Therefore, "cyst (i) (o)-" suggests an inflamed cyst in the urinary system.

    Rate this question:

      Aden-

    • B.

      Cyst (i) (o)-

    • C.

      Cyt (o)-, -cyte

    Correct Answer
    C. Cyt (o)-, -cyte
    Explanation
    The given word "cell" is broken down into three parts: "aden-" which means gland, "-cyst" which means sac or bladder, and "-cyt" which means cell. The suffix "-o" denotes a combining form, and the suffix "-cyte" means cell. Therefore, the correct answer is "cyt (o)-, -cyte" because it represents the combining form for cell and the suffix that means cell.

    • C.

      Duodeno-

    Correct Answer
    C. Duodeno-
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "duodeno-". The term "duodeno-" refers to the duodenum, which is the first part of the small intestine. The other options listed, such as "colp(o)-", "vagin-", "col-", "colo-", and "colono-", do not specifically relate to the duodenum. Therefore, "duodeno-" is the most appropriate answer in this context.

    Correct Answer
    B. Enter (o)-
    Explanation
    The term "enter(o)-" is related to the intestine. "Enter(o)-" is a combining form that specifically refers to the intestine. This can be seen in medical terms such as enteritis (inflammation of the intestine) or enteropathy (disease of the intestine). Therefore, "enter(o)-" is the correct answer in relation to the term "intestine".

      Duodeno-

    Correct Answer
    B. Gastr (o)-
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "gastr (o)-". This is because the root "gastr" refers to the stomach. The "-o" suffix is a combining form used to indicate a connection or relation to a specific body part or organ. Therefore, "gastr (o)-" is the correct choice as it relates to the stomach.
