      116

    • D.

      206

    Correct Answer
    B. 126
    Explanation
    there are 126 bones in the appendicular skeletal system

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    How many bones are within the axial skeletal system?

    • A.

      81

    • B.

      90

    • C.

      80

    • D.

      70

    Correct Answer
    C. 80
    Explanation
    there are 80 bones within the axial skeletal system

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The cranium is part of the axial skeletal system

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The cranium is indeed part of the axial skeletal system. The axial skeletal system includes the bones that form the central axis of the body, such as the skull, vertebral column, and rib cage. The cranium, also known as the skull, is a vital component of the axial skeleton as it protects the brain and supports the structures of the face. Therefore, the statement "The cranium is part of the axial skeletal system" is true.

    The following bones form the structure of the arms

    • A.

      Radius

    • B.

      Ulna

    • C.

      Clavicle

    • D.

      Humerus

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Radius
    B. Ulna
    D. Humerus
    Explanation
    correct answer:
    radius
    ulna
    humerus

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The function of support supports soft tissues and provides __________ for the tendons of most skeletal muscles 

    • A.

      Landing points

    • B.

      Areas

    • C.

      Contractions

    • D.

      Attachments

    Correct Answer
    D. Attachments
    Explanation
    The skeleton supports soft tissues e.g. muscles and provides attachment points for the tendons of most skeletal muscles

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The patella assists in protecting what part of the body?

    • A.

      Brain

    • B.

      Lungs

    • C.

      Vertebral column

    • D.

      Knee

    Correct Answer
    D. Knee
    Explanation
    The patella, also known as the kneecap, is a small bone located in front of the knee joint. Its primary function is to protect the knee joint and assist in the movement of the lower leg. It acts as a shield, covering the front of the knee and providing additional support and stability to the joint. Therefore, the correct answer is knee.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Movement is produced through an ___________

    • A.

      Efficient muscular system

    • B.

      Efficient lever system

    • C.

      Efficient athlete

    • D.

      Efficient co-ordination

    Correct Answer
    B. Efficient lever system
    Explanation
    • Most skeletal muscles attach to bones
    • When they contract, they pull on bones to produce movement
    • This is primarily done through an efficient lever system, which is prevalent throughout all bodily and sporting movements.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

      1%

    • B.

      89%

    • C.

      99%

    • D.

      95%

    Correct Answer
    C. 99%
    Explanation
    Bone tissue stores about 99% of the body’s calcium

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which type of blood cell is essential for aerobic respiration?

    • A.

      White

    • B.

      Red

    Correct Answer
    B. Red
    Explanation
    Red blood cells are essential for aerobic respiration. White blood cells are the cells of the immune system

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What does the bone release (on demand) into the blood to ensure homeostasis is maintained?

    • A.

      Temperature regulators

    • B.

      Minerals e.g. calcium

    • C.

      Red bone marrow

    Correct Answer
    B. Minerals e.g. calcium
    Explanation
    • Red bone marrow is present in adult bones such as the pelvis, ribs, sternum, vertebrae and at the end of long bones such as the humerus and femur. On demand, bone releases minerals e.g. calcium into the blood to maintain critical mineral balances (homeostasis) and to distribute the minerals to other parts of the body that require it.
    Homeostasis refers to maintaining an equilibrium i.e. a balance through regulation

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The appendicular bones are the main limbs and girdles that facilitate movement. Axial bones are the cranium, vertebrae, sacrum and sternum.
