Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The type of reproduction that humans have in which a male and female come together to form new life.

    • A.

      Sexual

    • B.

      Budding

    • C.

      Fission

    Correct Answer
    A. Sexual
    Explanation
    Sexual reproduction is the correct answer because it involves the combination of genetic material from a male and a female to form new life. This process typically involves the fusion of gametes, such as sperm and egg, resulting in offspring with a unique combination of genetic traits. Sexual reproduction allows for genetic diversity and variation in a species, as compared to asexual reproduction methods like budding or fission, where offspring are genetically identical to the parent.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A male sperm or female ova or egg sex cell.

    • A.

      Gamete

    • B.

      Gonad

    • C.

      Zygote

    Correct Answer
    A. Gamete
    Explanation
    A gamete is a male sperm or female ova or egg sex cell. It is the reproductive cell that fuses with another gamete during fertilization to form a zygote. Gametes are produced in the gonads, which are the reproductive organs, such as testes in males and ovaries in females. The zygote is the result of the fusion of two gametes and is the first stage of development of a new individual.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The fertilized female egg or ova that will grows into a baby.  

    • A.

      Gamete

    • B.

      Gonad

    • C.

      Zygote

    Correct Answer
    C. Zygote
    Explanation
    A zygote is the correct answer because it is the fertilized female egg or ova that will grow into a baby. After fertilization, when the sperm and egg combine, they form a zygote. The zygote then undergoes cell division and develops into an embryo, which eventually becomes a fetus and then a baby. Gamete refers to the reproductive cells (sperm and egg) that combine to form a zygote, while gonad refers to the organs that produce gametes (testes in males and ovaries in females).

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The male or female sex organ (testicles or ovaries).

    • A.

      Oamete

    • B.

      Gonad

    • C.

      Zygote

    Correct Answer
    B. Gonad
    Explanation
    A gonad refers to the male or female sex organ, such as testicles in males or ovaries in females. It is responsible for producing the gametes (sperm or eggs) necessary for sexual reproduction. The term "gonad" encompasses both male and female reproductive organs and is essential for the development and functioning of the reproductive system.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    This occurs around the preteen and teen years in which males' and females' bodies mature so they are capable of creating new life.  

    • A.

      Menopause

    • B.

      Gestation

    • C.

      Puberty

    Correct Answer
    C. Puberty
    Explanation
    Puberty is the correct answer because it refers to the stage in which both males and females experience physical and hormonal changes that enable them to reproduce. During this time, their bodies mature and develop secondary sexual characteristics, such as the growth of breasts in females and the deepening of the voice in males. This stage typically occurs during preteen and teenage years, marking the transition from childhood to adulthood. Menopause, on the other hand, refers to the end of the reproductive period in women, while gestation refers to the period of pregnancy.
