    Explanation
    The skin is the largest organ of the body. It covers the entire body and serves as a protective barrier against external factors such as pathogens, UV radiation, and physical injuries. It helps regulate body temperature, stores fat and water, and contains sensory receptors that allow us to feel touch, pressure, and pain. The skin also plays a role in the production of vitamin D and helps eliminate waste products through sweat.

    The skin is a very complex organ whose correct functioning is essential to life. (Select three functions of the skin)

    • A.

      It is self healing and replacing

    • B.

      Skin is not capable of becoming thicker if exposed to wear and tear

      Vitally important in the production of vitamin D

    • D.

      It plays a role in regulation of our body temperature

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. It is self healing and replacing
    C. Vitally important in the production of vitamin D
    D. It plays a role in regulation of our body temperature
    Explanation
    The skin is self-healing and replacing, meaning that it has the ability to repair itself and regenerate new skin cells. This is important for maintaining the integrity and function of the skin. The skin is also vitally important in the production of vitamin D. When exposed to sunlight, the skin synthesizes vitamin D, which is essential for calcium absorption and bone health. Additionally, the skin plays a role in regulating our body temperature. It helps to keep the body cool through sweating when it is hot and conserves heat by constricting blood vessels when it is cold.

    The dermis is the inner layer which consists of fibrous and connective tissue. (Select three)

    • A.

      Sebaceous and sweat glands

    • B.

      Mucous

    • C.

      Nerve fibres and endings

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Sebaceous and sweat glands
    C. Nerve fibres and endings
    D. Hair follicles, capillaries and blood vessels
    Explanation
    The dermis is the inner layer of the skin that is composed of fibrous and connective tissue. It contains various structures such as sebaceous and sweat glands, nerve fibers and endings, and hair follicles, capillaries, and blood vessels. Sebaceous and sweat glands are responsible for producing oils and sweat, which help to moisturize and cool the skin. Nerve fibers and endings allow for the sensation of touch, temperature, and pain. Hair follicles, capillaries, and blood vessels are important for hair growth, nutrient supply, and regulation of body temperature.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The main part of the sweat gland is situated in the dermis and the duct spirals to the surface through the epidermis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because sweat glands are located in the dermis, which is the second layer of the skin. The sweat gland's duct then spirals up through the epidermis, which is the outermost layer of the skin, to reach the surface. This allows sweat to be released onto the skin's surface, helping to regulate body temperature.

  • 8. 

    Nails are modifications of the epidermis and are horny plates corresponding to the claws or hoofs of animals.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Nails are indeed modifications of the epidermis and are similar to the claws or hoofs of animals. They are made up of a hard, protein called keratin, which is also found in hair and skin. Nails serve various functions, including protection of the fingertips, aiding in gripping objects, and providing support to the fingers. Therefore, the statement "Nails are modifications of the epidermis and are horny plates corresponding to the claws or hoofs of animals" is true.
