    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The given words "galacto," "egg," "ovary," and "breast" all relate to the production or secretion of milk. "Galacto" refers to the production of milk, "egg" and "ovary" are related to the reproductive system, and "breast" is where milk is produced in mammals. Therefore, the correct answer is "milk," as it is the common factor among all the given words.

    • B.

      Reproductive system

    • C.

      Born, birth

    • D.

      Neck, uterus

    Correct Answer
    B. Reproductive system
    Explanation
    The term "reproductive system" refers to the organs and structures involved in the production and transportation of gametes (sperm and eggs) and the development of offspring. In the given context, the words "genita" and "bulblike gland" suggest a connection to the reproductive system. Additionally, the words "born" and "birth" further support this, as they are related to the process of reproduction. However, the word "neck" seems unrelated to the reproductive system, while "uterus" is a specific organ within the reproductive system. Therefore, the correct answer is "reproductive system."

      Ovary

    • C.

      Uterus

    • D.

      Seed

    Correct Answer
    C. Uterus
    Explanation
    The word "hyster" is a shortened form of "hysterectomy," which is the surgical removal of the uterus. The other options, such as breast, ovary, and seed, do not relate to the term "hyster" or have any direct connection to the uterus. Therefore, the correct answer is uterus.

    • D.

      Milk

    Correct Answer
    D. Milk
    Explanation
    The term "lactin" is not a recognized medical or biological term. However, the given answer "milk" is a plausible explanation as milk is commonly associated with lactation. Lactation is the process by which milk is produced in the mammary glands of female mammals, typically after giving birth. Therefore, milk is the most fitting option among the given terms.

      Milk

    • D.

      Seed

    Correct Answer
    A. Breast
    Explanation
    The word "breast" is the correct answer because it is the only word in the given list that is directly associated with the production of milk in mammals. The other words, such as "mast," "uterus," and "seed," do not have a direct connection to milk production.

      Uterus

    • D.

      Duct, vessel

    Correct Answer
    C. Uterus
    Explanation
    The given answer "uterus" is correct because the words "born" and "birth" suggest a reproductive context. The term "uterus" refers to the organ in female mammals where the fetus develops during pregnancy. This explanation is supported by the other words listed, such as "metr" which is a root meaning uterus, and "milk" which is produced by mammary glands located in the breasts, another reproductive organ. The term "duct, vessel" may also relate to the reproductive system, as it could refer to the fallopian tubes or blood vessels associated with the uterus.

      Tubes

    • D.

      Ovary

    Correct Answer
    D. Ovary
    Explanation
    The term "ovary" refers to one of the female reproductive organs in mammals, including humans. It is responsible for producing and releasing eggs, also known as ova, which are necessary for reproduction. The other options mentioned in the question, such as "oophoro" (which is not a recognized term) and "tubes" (likely referring to the fallopian tubes), are related to the female reproductive system but do not specifically pertain to the production of eggs. "Sperm" is not relevant to the question as it is associated with male reproductive organs. Therefore, the correct answer is "ovary."

    • D.

      Testicle

    Correct Answer
    D. Testicle
    Explanation
    The word "orchido" is derived from the Greek word "orchis" which means testicle. Therefore, the correct answer is "testicle" as it is the only term that relates to the given word. The other options - ovaries, eggs, and seed - do not have any connection to the word "orchido".

    • D.

      Egg

    Correct Answer
    D. Egg
    Explanation
    The given words "ova, ovi, ovo" are all variations of the word "egg" in different languages. "Ova" is the plural form of "ovum" in Latin, "ovi" is the plural form of "ovum" in Croatian, and "ovo" is the neuter form of "ovum" in Serbian. Therefore, the correct answer is "egg".

    • C.

      Uterus

    • D.

      Bulblike gland

    Correct Answer
    A. Tube, fallopian
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "tube, fallopian." This is because the fallopian tubes are a pair of tubes that connect the ovaries to the uterus in the female reproductive system. They serve as a pathway for the egg to travel from the ovary to the uterus, where fertilization can occur. The term "fallopian" is often used to specifically refer to these tubes, making it the correct answer in this context.
