    Involuntary muscles are controlled by the central nervous system and are under the control of the will.

    • A.

      True

    Explanation
    Involuntary muscles are not under the control of the will. They are controlled by the autonomic nervous system, which operates independently of conscious control.

    The left side of the heart deals with deoxygenated blood.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The left side of the heart actually deals with oxygenated blood. The left atrium receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs and pumps it into the left ventricle, which then pumps the oxygenated blood to the rest of the body. This is in contrast to the right side of the heart, which deals with deoxygenated blood. The right atrium receives deoxygenated blood from the body and pumps it into the right ventricle, which then pumps the blood to the lungs to be oxygenated. Therefore, the statement that the left side of the heart deals with deoxygenated blood is false.

    The spine consists of ______ vertebrae, the reason for this being to allow movement of the joints between the bones.

    • A.

      30

    • B.

      33

    Correct Answer
    D. 33
    Explanation
    The spine consists of 33 vertebrae, which allows movement of the joints between the bones. The vertebrae are stacked on top of each other, forming the spinal column. Each vertebra has a bony ring that surrounds and protects the spinal cord. There are different types of vertebrae, such as cervical, thoracic, and lumbar, which have different shapes and functions. The large number of vertebrae in the spine allows for flexibility and movement, enabling activities such as bending, twisting, and turning.

    Light rays entering the eyeball pass through the cornea, aqueous humour, the lens and the vitreous humour.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because light rays do indeed pass through the cornea, aqueous humor, lens, and vitreous humor when entering the eyeball. The cornea is the clear outer layer that helps to focus light onto the retina. The aqueous humor is a clear fluid that fills the space between the cornea and the lens, providing nutrients to the cornea and lens. The lens further focuses the light onto the retina. Finally, the vitreous humor is a gel-like substance that fills the space between the lens and the retina, helping to maintain the shape of the eyeball and transmit light to the retina.

    The respiratory system consists of air passages and heart.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. The respiratory system consists of air passages and lungs, not the heart. The air passages include the nose, mouth, throat, trachea, and bronchial tubes, which allow air to enter and exit the lungs. The lungs are the main organs responsible for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body. The heart, on the other hand, is part of the circulatory system, which works in conjunction with the respiratory system to deliver oxygenated blood to the body's tissues.
