      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Follicular phase
    Explanation
    The follicular phase is the first phase of the menstrual cycle. During this phase, the follicles in the ovaries start to develop and mature.

The luteal phase comes after ovulation, and the ovulatory phase refers specifically to the day of ovulation. Therefore, the correct answer is the follicular phase.

    Correct Answer
    D. Vaginal discharge
    Explanation
    Vaginal discharge is one of the first signs of a period. It is a normal part of the menstrual cycle and occurs when the body prepares for menstruation. The discharge is usually a whitish or clear fluid that may have a slightly different consistency than usual. It is a result of hormonal changes and helps to keep the vagina clean and healthy. This is a common symptom that many girls experience before they start menstruating.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    It takes 10 hours for a sperm to fertilize an egg.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because it generally takes around 10 hours for a sperm to fertilize an egg. After ejaculation, the sperm travels through the female reproductive system and reaches the fallopian tubes where the egg is released. Once the sperm reaches the egg, it undergoes a process called capacitation, which takes about 6-8 hours. After capacitation, the sperm can penetrate the egg and fertilization occurs. Therefore, the statement is true.

Periods refer to the menstrual cycle, where the lining of the uterus is shed. Vaginal discharge is a normal occurrence in girls and women, which helps to keep the vagina clean and healthy. During puberty, girls experience growth and development, which includes the widening of hips and the development of curves in the body. These changes are a natural part of the maturation process in girls.

    • B.

      Wet dreams

    • C.

      Their hips will widen and the body will get curvier

    • D.

      They will start growing in height and muscles

    Correct Answer
    C. Their hips will widen and the body will get curvier
    Explanation
    During puberty, boys experience various physical changes. Hair growth around the pubic area and face is a physical change that occurs during puberty. Wet dreams, which are involuntary ejaculations during sleep, are also a normal part of male development. Boys will start growing in height and muscles as they go through puberty. However, their hips will not widen, and their bodies will not become curvier. This is because the widening of hips and curvier body shape are physical changes that typically occur in girls during puberty.
