Circulatory And Respiratory Systems - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which is the correct circulatory path for blood as it leaves the heart and is then returned to the heart?

    • A.

      Capillaries -- Veins --Arteries

    • B.

      Arteries -- Capillaries -- Veins

    • C.

      Veins -- Capillaries --Arteries

    Correct Answer
    B. Arteries -- Capillaries -- Veins
    Explanation
    Blood leaves the heart through the arteries, which carry oxygenated blood to the body tissues. In the capillaries, the exchange of oxygen and nutrients occurs between the blood and the tissues. After this, the deoxygenated blood is collected by the veins and returned to the heart for reoxygenation. Therefore, the correct circulatory path for blood as it leaves the heart and is then returned to the heart is Arteries -- Capillaries -- Veins.

    How do the circulatory and respiratory systems work together?

    • A.

      The oxygen in the respiratory system is converted to carbon dioxide by the circulatory system.

    • B.

      Oxygen from cellular respiration is removed from cells and transported by the blood.

    • C.

      Carbon dioxide for cellular respiration is brought to the body's cells by the blood.

    • D.

      The circulatory system transports the oxygen and carbon dioxide that are exchanged in the respiratory system.

    Correct Answer
    D. The circulatory system transports the oxygen and carbon dioxide that are exchanged in the respiratory system.
    Explanation
    The circulatory system and respiratory system work together to ensure that oxygen is transported to the body's cells and carbon dioxide is removed. Oxygen from the respiratory system is converted to carbon dioxide by the circulatory system. The blood then carries the oxygen from cellular respiration to the cells, while also bringing carbon dioxide to the cells for cellular respiration. This exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the two systems is facilitated by the circulatory system, which transports these gases to where they are needed in the body.

    Which of the following is the correct respiratory path for inhaling?

    • A.

      Nose, pharynx, bronchus, trachea, bronchiole

    • B.

      Nose, larynx, trachea, alveoli, bronchiole, bronchus

    • C.

      Nose, larynx, trachea, bronchus, bronchiole, alveoli

    • D.

      Nose, bronchus, trachea, bronchiole, alveoli

    Correct Answer
    C. Nose, larynx, trachea, bronchus, bronchiole, alveoli
    Explanation
    The correct respiratory path for inhaling starts with air entering through the nose, then passing through the larynx, trachea, bronchus, bronchiole, and finally reaching the alveoli.

  • 4. 

    Which of the following best describes what happens when you inhale?

    • A.

      The lung muscles contract, causing the rib cage to expand.

    • B.

      The diaphragm muscle contracts and moves downward.

    • C.

      The epiglottis closes over the trachea, forcing oxygen into the lungs.

    Correct Answer
    B. The diaphragm muscle contracts and moves downward.
    Explanation
    When you inhale, the diaphragm muscle contracts and moves downward. This action creates more space in the chest cavity, allowing the lungs to expand. As the lungs expand, air is drawn in through the nose or mouth and travels down the trachea into the lungs. The contraction and downward movement of the diaphragm play a crucial role in the process of inhalation.

    Microscopic blood vessels that exchange food, waste, and gases with body cells

    • A.

      Capillaries

    • B.

      Arteries

    • C.

      Veins

    • D.

      Neurons

    • E.

      Morons

    Correct Answer
    A. Capillaries
    Explanation
    Capillaries are microscopic blood vessels that play a crucial role in the exchange of food, waste, and gases with body cells. They are responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients to the cells and removing carbon dioxide and other waste products. Capillaries have thin walls, allowing for efficient diffusion of substances between the blood and the surrounding tissues. Unlike arteries and veins, capillaries have a single layer of endothelial cells, which further facilitates the exchange of substances. Therefore, capillaries are the correct answer in this case.

    The link between the endocrine and nervous system.

    • A.

      Pituitary gland

    • B.

      CNS

    • C.

      Capillaries

    • D.

      Hypothalamus

    Correct Answer
    D. Hypothalamus
    Explanation
    The hypothalamus is a small region in the brain that plays a crucial role in connecting the endocrine and nervous systems. It acts as a link between the two systems by controlling the release of hormones from the pituitary gland, which is often referred to as the "master gland" of the endocrine system. The hypothalamus receives signals from the central nervous system (CNS) and then sends appropriate signals to the pituitary gland to release specific hormones into the bloodstream. These hormones then act on various target tissues and organs, regulating their function and maintaining homeostasis in the body.

    These tiny air sacs allow oxygen and carbon dioxide to enter and leave the bloodstream.  

    • A.

      Arteries

    • B.

      Capillaries

    • C.

      Alveoli

    • D.

      Ravioli

    • E.

      Bronchioles

    Correct Answer
    C. Alveoli
    Explanation
    The tiny air sacs referred to in the question are called alveoli. These structures are found in the lungs and are responsible for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the bloodstream and the air. Oxygen from the air enters the bloodstream through the walls of the alveoli, while carbon dioxide, a waste product, is removed from the bloodstream and exhaled out of the body through the alveoli. Arteries, capillaries, bronchioles, and ravioli are not directly involved in this gas exchange process.
