    • 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 because these are the three types of muscle tissue found in the human body. Smooth muscle is found in the walls of organs and blood vessels, cardiac muscle is found in the heart, and skeletal muscle is attached to bones and responsible for voluntary movement.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    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 not under voluntary control. It is found in the walls of internal organs, such as the stomach, intestines, bladder, and blood vessels. This type of muscle is responsible for the involuntary movements of these organs, such as the contraction and relaxation of the stomach during digestion or the constriction and dilation of blood vessels. Smooth muscle is not found attached to the skeleton or in the bones, nor is it specifically located at the knee joint. Therefore, the correct answer is that smooth muscle can be found in internal organs.

    Muscle tissue functions to move

    • 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 and substances. It helps to move blood by contracting and relaxing the walls of blood vessels, aiding in circulation. It also plays a crucial role in moving food through the digestive tract, facilitating digestion and absorption. Additionally, muscles are attached to bones and are responsible for their movement, allowing us to perform various physical activities. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above" as muscle tissue functions in moving blood, food in the digestive tract, and bones.

    • D.

      Muscle

    Correct Answer
    D. Muscle
    Explanation
    Muscle tissue enables a person's fingers to move as they play the piano. Muscles are responsible for generating the force needed for movement. When a person plays the piano, the muscles in their fingers contract and relax, allowing them to press the keys and produce the desired sound. This movement is controlled by the nervous system, which sends signals to the muscles to contract and relax in a coordinated manner. Therefore, muscle tissue is essential for the intricate and precise movements required for playing the piano.
