    • A.

      Dead

    • B.

      Living

    • C.

      Fat

    • D.

      Hair

    Correct Answer
    A. Dead
    Explanation
    The outer layer of our skin is dead. This is because the outermost layer, known as the stratum corneum, is composed of dead skin cells that have been pushed to the surface as new cells are produced in the deeper layers. These dead skin cells provide a protective barrier for the underlying layers of skin and help to prevent water loss and protect against external factors such as bacteria and UV radiation.

    Our skin has in sensors that are sensitive to

    • A.

      Pressure only

    • B.

      Touch and sound

    • C.

      Temperature only

    • D.

      Both pressure and temperature

    Correct Answer
    D. Both pressure and temperature
    Explanation
    Our skin has sensors that are sensitive to both pressure and temperature. These sensors, known as mechanoreceptors, detect changes in pressure and temperature on the skin's surface. When pressure is applied, the mechanoreceptors send signals to the brain, allowing us to feel sensations such as touch, vibration, and texture. Similarly, when the temperature changes, the thermoreceptors in our skin detect the difference and send signals to the brain, enabling us to perceive hot or cold sensations. Therefore, our skin is equipped with sensors that are responsive to both pressure and temperature.

    Our nose helps us to sense- 

    • A.

      Light

    • B.

      Tastes

    • C.

      Smell

    • D.

      Sound

    Correct Answer
    C. Smell
    Explanation
    The nose helps us to sense smell. It contains olfactory receptors that detect different odors in the air. When we inhale, the molecules from the substances around us bind to these receptors, sending signals to our brain, which then interprets them as different smells. Therefore, the nose plays a crucial role in our ability to perceive and distinguish various scents in our environment.

      Salt

    • D.

      Sour

    Correct Answer
    D. Sour
    Explanation
    At the sides of our tongue, we mainly taste sour flavors. This is because the taste buds located on the sides of the tongue are more sensitive to acidic substances, which are commonly associated with sour tastes. Sour taste buds detect the presence of acids in foods and beverages, signaling to our brain that the taste is sour.

    Explanation
    The skin is the largest sense organ in the body because it covers the entire surface area and is responsible for detecting various sensations such as touch, temperature, pain, and pressure. It contains numerous sensory receptors that send signals to the brain, allowing us to perceive and respond to our environment. The skin also plays a vital role in protecting the body from external threats and regulating body temperature.
