Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

      Which muscles do you use to flex elbow and supinates the forearm?

    • A.

      Brachioradialis

    • B.

      Bicep

    • C.

      Flexorcarpi radialis

    Correct Answer
    B. Bicep
    Explanation
    The bicep muscle is responsible for flexing the elbow and supinating the forearm. When the bicep contracts, it pulls on the radius bone in the forearm, causing the forearm to rotate and the elbow joint to flex. This movement allows for actions such as lifting objects and bringing the hand towards the shoulder. The other muscles listed, the brachioradialis and flexor carpi radialis, are not directly involved in these actions.

      Which muscles do you use to Flex the wrist joint drawing it closer to the forearm?

    • A.

      Pronator teres

    • B.

      Fexor carpi Radialis

    • C.

      Flexor carpi Ulnaris

    Correct Answer
    C. Flexor carpi Ulnaris
    Explanation
    The Flexor carpi Ulnaris muscle is responsible for flexing the wrist joint and drawing it closer to the forearm. This muscle is located on the inner side of the forearm and when it contracts, it pulls the wrist towards the inner side of the forearm. The Pronator teres muscle is responsible for pronation of the forearm, while the Flexor carpi Radialis muscle is responsible for flexion and abduction of the wrist joint.

    Correct Answer
    A. To aid flexion of the knee
    Explanation
    The function of the hamstrings is to aid in the flexion of the knee. The hamstrings are a group of muscles located at the back of the thigh, consisting of the biceps femoris, semitendinosus, and semimembranosus muscles. When these muscles contract, they help to bend the knee joint, allowing for flexion of the knee. This action is important for activities such as walking, running, and jumping, as it allows for the movement of the lower leg in relation to the upper leg.

    The action of the tibalis anterior is to bend the ankle in order to pull the foot up. This muscle is located in the front of the lower leg and plays a crucial role in dorsiflexion, which is the movement that brings the top of the foot toward the shin. This action is important for activities such as walking, running, and maintaining balance.
