Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    These figures represent what type of tissue?

    • A.

      Adipose

    • B.

      Epithelial

    • C.

      Muscle

    • D.

      Nervous

    Correct Answer
    C. Muscle
    Explanation
    The figures most likely represent muscle tissue because muscle tissue is made up of long, cylindrical cells that are capable of contracting and generating force. These cells are often arranged in bundles or layers, as shown in the figures. Adipose tissue consists of fat cells, epithelial tissue is composed of tightly packed cells that line the surfaces of organs and structures, and nervous tissue is made up of neurons and supporting cells. None of these tissues exhibit the characteristic features seen in the figures.

      Connective tissue

    • C.

      Nervous tissue

    • D.

      Muscle tissue

    Correct Answer
    A. Epithelial tissue
    Explanation
    Epithelial tissue is specialized to cover the inner and outer surfaces of the internal organs. It forms a protective barrier and helps in absorption, secretion, and sensation. It is composed of closely packed cells with very little extracellular matrix. Epithelial tissue can be found in the skin, lining of the digestive tract, respiratory system, and blood vessels. It plays a crucial role in maintaining the integrity and function of the organs it covers.

  • 4. 

    Blood, bone, and cartilage are examples of

    • A.

      Three different tissue types found in the body.

    • B.

      Connective tissue.

    • C.

      Epithelial tissue.

    • D.

      Organs in the body.

    Correct Answer
    B. Connective tissue.
    Explanation
    Blood, bone, and cartilage are all examples of connective tissue. Connective tissue is a type of tissue that connects, supports, and protects different structures in the body. It is made up of cells and an extracellular matrix, which gives it strength and flexibility. Blood is a connective tissue that transports oxygen, nutrients, and waste products throughout the body. Bone provides structural support and protection for organs, while cartilage acts as a cushion and shock absorber between bones. Therefore, the correct answer is connective tissue.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Connective tissue inclued

    • A.

      Tendons that connect muscle to bone.

    • B.

      The layer beneath your skin that connects the skin to muscle.

    • C.

      Fat.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above." This is because connective tissue includes tendons that connect muscle to bone, the layer beneath the skin that connects it to muscle, and fat. Connective tissue is a type of tissue that provides support and structure to the body, and it is found throughout the body in various forms.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following figures represents BONE tissue?

    Correct Answer
    D.
  • 7. 

    The three type of muscle tissue are

    • A.

      Smooth, cardiac and skeletal

    • B.

      Skeletal, voluntary, and cardiac.

    • C.

      Smooth, involuntary, and cardiac.

    • D.

      Skeletal, cardiac, and rigid.

    Correct Answer
    A. Smooth, cardiac and skeletal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is smooth, cardiac, and skeletal. These three types of muscle tissue are distinct in their structure and function. Smooth muscle is found in the walls of organs and blood vessels, and it is responsible for involuntary movements. Cardiac muscle is specific to the heart and allows for its rhythmic contractions. Skeletal muscle is attached to bones and is responsible for voluntary movements.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Smooth muscle can be found

    • A.

      Attached to the skeleton.

    • B.

      In the wrist bones.

    • C.

      At the knee joint.

    • D.

      In internal organs.

    Correct Answer
    D. In internal organs.
    Explanation
    Smooth muscle is a type of muscle tissue that is involuntary and non-striated. It is responsible for the movement of internal organs such as the stomach, intestines, bladder, and blood vessels. It is not found attached to the skeleton or in the wrist bones or knee joint, making the correct answer "in internal organs." Smooth muscle is essential for the proper functioning of these internal organs and helps to control their movement and contraction.

    • A.

      Blood.

    • B.

      Food in the digestive tract.

    • C.

      Bones.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Muscle tissue is responsible for the movement of various body parts, including blood circulation, the movement of food through the digestive tract, and the movement of bones. It achieves these functions through the contraction and relaxation of muscle fibers. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above."

  • 10. 

    Which of the following figures represents CONNECTIVE tissue?

    Correct Answer
    D.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Figure B. Connective tissue is characterized by a matrix of extracellular fibers and cells that provide support and connect different types of tissues in the body. Figure B shows a tissue with a dense arrangement of fibers, which is typical of connective tissue. Figures A, C, and D do not show the characteristic features of connective tissue and represent other types of tissues such as epithelial and muscle tissue.

  • 11. 

    Which of the following is NOT a specialized function of epithelial coverings?

    • A.

      The exchange of gases.

    • B.

      The secretion of lubricants.

    • C.

      The release of odorous secretions.

    • D.

      The facilitation of flexibility for movement.

    • E.

      The excretion of wastes.

    Correct Answer
    D. The facilitation of flexibility for movement.
    Explanation
    Epithelial coverings have several specialized functions, including the exchange of gases, the secretion of lubricants, the release of odorous secretions, and the excretion of wastes. However, the facilitation of flexibility for movement is not a specialized function of epithelial coverings. This function is mainly carried out by other tissues such as muscle and connective tissue. Epithelial coverings primarily serve as protective barriers and play a role in absorption, secretion, and sensory reception.
