    What would happen if the nostrils had no tiny hair?

    • A.

      You can breathe easily

    • B.

      You could get sick easily

    • C.

      You will have nose bleed

    Correct Answer
    B. You could get sick easily
    Explanation
    If the nostrils had no tiny hair, they would not be able to filter out dust, allergens, and other particles in the air that we breathe. This would make it easier for harmful substances to enter our respiratory system, increasing the risk of getting sick. The tiny hairs in the nostrils play an important role in trapping and preventing these particles from entering our lungs, so without them, our immune system would be more vulnerable to infections and illnesses.

  • 3. 

    Which is NOT a function of the nasal cavity?

    • A.

      Allows air in and out

    • B.

      Has mucous membrane

    • C.

      Send messages to the brain

    Correct Answer
    C. Send messages to the brain
    Explanation
    The nasal cavity is responsible for allowing air in and out of the body and contains a mucous membrane that helps to filter and humidify the air. However, it is not involved in sending messages to the brain. The olfactory receptors in the nasal cavity play a role in detecting smells, but the actual transmission of these messages to the brain occurs through the olfactory nerve.

    The mucous membrane gives off a sticky fluid called _____.

    • A.

      Macula

    • B.

      Mucus

    • C.

      Membrane

    Correct Answer
    B. Mucus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Mucus". The mucous membrane, also known as the mucus membrane, produces a sticky fluid called mucus. Mucus is a thick, slimy substance that helps to lubricate and protect various organs and tissues in the body. It plays a crucial role in trapping and removing foreign particles, such as dust and bacteria, from the respiratory and digestive systems.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Where are the nerves located that detect chemicals that cause smell?

    • A.

      At the bottom of the nasal cavity

    • B.

      At the roof of the nasal cavity

    • C.

      At the back of the nasal cavity

    Correct Answer
    B. At the roof of the nasal cavity
    Explanation
    The nerves that detect chemicals that cause smell are located at the roof of the nasal cavity. This is where the olfactory epithelium is located, which contains specialized cells called olfactory receptor cells. These cells have tiny hair-like structures called cilia that extend into the nasal cavity and are responsible for detecting and transmitting signals about different smells to the brain.

    What is the taste of chocolate cake?

    • A.

      Salty

    • B.

      Sour

      Sweet

    • D.

      Bitter

    Correct Answer
    C. Sweet
    Explanation
    Chocolate cake is typically known for its sweet taste. The combination of cocoa powder and sugar in the cake batter creates a rich and sweet flavor profile. Additionally, chocolate frosting or ganache is often used to enhance the sweetness of the cake. Therefore, the taste of chocolate cake is sweet.

      Sweet

    • D.

      Bitter

    Correct Answer
    D. Bitter

    What is the taste of cheese?

    • A.

      Salty

    • B.

      Sour

    • C.

      Sweet

    • D.

      Bitter

    Correct Answer
    A. Salty
    Explanation
    Cheese is typically known for its salty taste. This is because cheese is made from milk, which contains natural salts. During the cheese-making process, these salts are concentrated, resulting in the salty flavor. Additionally, some types of cheese, such as feta or blue cheese, are intentionally salted during the aging process to enhance their flavor. Therefore, the correct answer is salty.

    Greg passed by a garden. Suddenly the inner side of his nose became swollen. What does this mean?

    • A.

      Greg has allergies

    • B.

      Greg got wet

    • C.

      Greg was punched

    Correct Answer
    A. Greg has allergies
    Explanation
    This answer suggests that Greg's swollen nose is likely due to allergies. Allergies can cause inflammation in the nasal passages, leading to symptoms such as swelling, congestion, and runny nose. This explanation aligns with the given information that Greg passed by a garden, as gardens can contain various allergens such as pollen, mold, or dust mites that can trigger allergic reactions.

    Fred’s nose is blocked with mucus. Which do you think might have caused it?

    • A.

      He was punched

    • B.

      He got sick

    • C.

      He ate vegetables

    Correct Answer
    B. He got sick
    Explanation
    Fred's nose is blocked with mucus, which is a common symptom of being sick. When someone gets sick, their body produces more mucus as a defense mechanism to trap and remove pathogens. This excess mucus can cause nasal congestion and blockage. Therefore, it is likely that Fred's blocked nose is caused by him getting sick.

    Kevin was playing with an eraser. Suddenly it got stuck in his nose. What should he do FIRST?

    • A.

      Blow hard

    • B.

      Call a doctor

    • C.

      Leave it alone

    Correct Answer
    A. Blow hard
    Explanation
    Kevin should blow hard first to try to dislodge the eraser from his nose. Blowing hard can create enough force to push the object out of the nasal passage. However, if blowing hard does not work, he should seek medical help by calling a doctor. Leaving it alone may not be the best option as it can lead to further complications.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The eraser was still stuck in Kevin's nose after he blew hard. What should he do next?

    • A.

      Blow harder

    • B.

      Call a doctor

    • C.

      Leave it alone

    Correct Answer
    B. Call a doctor
    Explanation
    Leaving the eraser stuck in Kevin's nose could potentially cause further complications or injuries. Blowing harder may not be effective and could potentially cause more harm. Therefore, the best course of action would be to call a doctor who can safely remove the eraser from Kevin's nose.

    Glossitisis caused by lack of vitamins. Which kinds of foods should you eat to prevent this?

    • A.

      Pizza

    • B.

      Carrot

    • C.

      Chocolate

    Correct Answer
    B. Carrot
    Explanation
    Carrots are a good source of vitamins, especially vitamin A, which is essential for maintaining healthy gums and preventing glossitis. Consuming foods rich in vitamins can help prevent glossitis, as it is often caused by a deficiency in certain vitamins. Pizza and chocolate do not provide the necessary vitamins to prevent glossitis.

    Taste and _______ go together.

    • A.

      Sound

    • B.

      Smell

    • C.

      Sight

    Correct Answer
    B. Smell
    Explanation
    Taste and smell are closely related senses that work together to enhance our perception of flavor. When we eat, the molecules from the food stimulate our taste buds, which can only detect basic tastes like sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and umami. However, it is our sense of smell that allows us to differentiate between different flavors and fully experience the taste of food. The aroma of food travels from the back of the throat to the olfactory receptors in the nose, providing us with additional information about the food's taste. Therefore, taste and smell are interconnected and complement each other in our sensory experience of food.

    What should you do FIRST if your nose bleeds?

    • A.

      Bend slightly backward

    • B.

      Bend slightly forward

    • C.

      Bend slightly side ward

    Correct Answer
    B. Bend slightly forward
    Explanation
    When your nose bleeds, the first thing you should do is bend slightly forward. This is because bending forward helps to prevent blood from flowing down the back of your throat, which can cause you to swallow blood and potentially irritate your stomach. By bending forward, you allow the blood to flow out of your nose instead.
