Muscle Quizzes & Trivia

The human body is quite complex especially when it comes to the finer details of the different body organs. The quiz below is all about the extrinsic muscle of the ankle and foot. All the best.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    O: Medial & Lateral Condyles, I: Posterior Calcaneus, A: Knee Flexion and Ankle Plantar Flexion,( Superficial Posterior Group)

    Explanation
    The gastrocnemius muscle is responsible for knee flexion and ankle plantar flexion. It originates from the medial and lateral condyles of the femur and inserts onto the posterior calcaneus. This muscle is part of the superficial posterior group of muscles.

  • 2. 

    O: Posterior tibia and Fibula I:Posterior Calcaneus , A: Ankle Plantar Flexion ( Superficial Posterior group )

    Explanation
    The soleus muscle is responsible for ankle plantar flexion, which is the movement of pointing the toes downward. It is located in the superficial posterior group of muscles, along with the posterior tibia and fibula. When the soleus muscle contracts, it helps to push the foot downward, enabling actions such as standing on tiptoes or pushing off the ground while walking or running.

  • 3. 

    O: Posterior tibia, I: Distal Phalanx of 4 lesser toes, A: Flexes the four lesser toes; assist in ankle dorsiflexion (Deep Posterior Group)

    Explanation
    The flexor digitorum longus muscle originates from the posterior tibia and inserts into the distal phalanx of the four lesser toes. Its action is to flex the four lesser toes and assist in ankle dorsiflexion. This muscle belongs to the deep posterior group of muscles.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    O: Interosseous membrane, Adjacent tibia & fibula, I: Navicular & most tarsal and metatarsals , A: Ankle Inversion , Assists in plantar flexion (Deep Posterior Group)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Tibialis Posterior muscle. The tibialis posterior muscle is located deep in the posterior compartment of the leg. It originates from the interosseous membrane, adjacent tibia, and fibula. It inserts into the navicular bone and most tarsal and metatarsal bones. This muscle is responsible for ankle inversion, which is the movement of turning the sole of the foot inward. Additionally, it assists in plantar flexion, which is the movement of pointing the toes downward.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    O: Posterior fibula and interossous membrane I: Distal Phalanx of great toe A: Flexes great toe , assists in inversion and plantar flexion of ankle ( Deep posterior group )

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Flexor hallucis longus muscle. This muscle originates from the posterior fibula and interosseous membrane and inserts into the distal phalanx of the great toe. It functions to flex the great toe and assists in inversion and plantar flexion of the ankle. It belongs to the deep posterior group of muscles.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    O: Lateral tibia and interosseous membrane I: First cuneiform and first metatarsal A: Ankle inversion and dorsiflexion (Anterior group)

    Explanation
    The given answer, Tibialis anterior muscle, is correct because it originates from the lateral tibia and interosseous membrane and inserts onto the first cuneiform and first metatarsal. This muscle is responsible for ankle inversion (turning the foot inward) and dorsiflexion (lifting the foot upward). Therefore, it belongs to the anterior group of muscles that control these movements.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    O: Fibula and Interosseous membrane I; Distal Phalanx of great toe  A: Extends first toe; assist in ankle inversion and dorsiflexion ( Anterior Group)

    Explanation
    The Extensor Hallucis Longus muscle originates from the fibula and interosseous membrane and inserts into the distal phalanx of the great toe. Its main action is to extend the first toe. Additionally, it assists in ankle inversion and dorsiflexion as part of the anterior group of muscles.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    O: Fibula, Interosseous membrane, Tibia I: Distal Phalanx of four lesser toes  A: Extends four lesser toes assists in ankle dorsiflexion (Anterior Group)

    Explanation
    The extensor digitorum longus muscle is responsible for extending the four lesser toes and assisting in ankle dorsiflexion. It is located in the lower leg and connects to the distal phalanx of the four lesser toes through the fibula and interosseous membrane. This muscle plays a crucial role in the movement and stability of the foot and toes.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    O: Lateral Proximal fibula I: Plantar Surface of first cuneiform and metatarsal A: Ankle eversion; assist in ankle plantar flexion (Lateral Group - Posterior)

    Explanation
    The Peroneus Longus muscle originates from the lateral proximal fibula and inserts into the plantar surface of the first cuneiform and metatarsal. It functions to assist in ankle eversion and ankle plantar flexion. This muscle belongs to the lateral group in the posterior compartment of the leg.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    O: Lateral Distal Fibula  I: Base of Fifth Metatarsal A: Ankle eversion; assist in plantar flexion (Lateral Group)

    Explanation
    The peroneus brevis muscle is responsible for ankle eversion and assists in plantar flexion. It originates from the lateral distal fibula and inserts into the base of the fifth metatarsal.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    O: Medial fibula, I: Base of fifth metatarsal, A: Assist somewhat in ankle eversion and dorsiflexion (Lateral-Anterior)

    Explanation
    The Peroneus tertius muscle originates from the medial fibula and inserts onto the base of the fifth metatarsal. It assists somewhat in ankle eversion and dorsiflexion in a lateral-anterior direction.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    What Group : Posterior , Plantar Flexion

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Superficial posterior group" because the question is asking about the specific group that is involved in plantar flexion. The superficial posterior group is responsible for plantar flexion, which is the movement of pointing the foot downwards. Therefore, this group is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What Group : Posterior, Medial , Planter flexion, Inversion

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Deep Posterior Group. The given options "Posterior, Medial, Planter flexion, Inversion" are characteristics or actions associated with the Deep Posterior Group. This group refers to a set of muscles located in the posterior compartment of the leg, which includes muscles like the tibialis posterior, flexor digitorum longus, and flexor hallucis longus. These muscles are responsible for actions such as plantar flexion (pointing the foot downwards), inversion (turning the sole of the foot inwards), and providing support to the arch of the foot.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What Group : Anterior, Medial , Dorsiflexion , Inversion

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Anterior Group" because the question is asking about a specific group, and the given options include different groups such as medial, dorsiflexion, and inversion. Among these options, the only one that matches the question is the "Anterior Group."

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What Group; Posterior, Lateral, Eversion, Plantar flexion

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Lateral group." In the given question, the options are "Posterior, Lateral, Eversion, Plantar flexion," and the correct answer is "Lateral group." This suggests that out of the four options, the correct group is the lateral group.
