    • B.

      Research of cells and their function

    • C.

      Study of muscle and tissue in a human body

    • D.

      Anatomy which does not require the use of a microscope

    Correct Answer
    D. Anatomy which does not require the use of a microscope
    Explanation
    Gross anatomy refers to the study of the structure and organization of organs, tissues, and systems in the human body that can be observed without the need for a microscope. It involves the examination of organs, muscles, bones, and other structures through dissection and visualization. This field of anatomy focuses on the macroscopic features and relationships of body parts, providing a foundation for understanding the overall structure and function of the human body.

    Correct Answer
    B. Pathologist
    Explanation
    Dr. Keplar holds the job of a pathologist. This can be inferred from the fact that he is examining tissue samples from the patient's chest and performing laboratory testing. Pathologists are medical professionals who specialize in diagnosing diseases by studying tissue samples and conducting laboratory tests.

    A broken rib is diagnosed to a patient. What is the most likely type of scan undertaken? 

    • A.

      X-Ray

    • B.

      CT scan

    • C.

      PET scan

    • D.

      Ultrasound

    Correct Answer
    A. X-Ray
    Explanation
    An X-Ray is the most likely type of scan undertaken to diagnose a broken rib. X-Rays use electromagnetic radiation to create images of the inside of the body, allowing doctors to visualize bones and detect fractures. X-Rays are commonly used to diagnose broken bones due to their ability to provide clear and detailed images of the skeletal structure. CT scans, PET scans, and ultrasounds are less commonly used for diagnosing broken ribs, as they are more suitable for other types of medical conditions.

  • 4. 

    Which system assists with removing foreign material from blood and maintaining tissue balances? 

    • A.

      Circulatory

    • B.

      Digestive

    • C.

      Lymphatic

    • D.

      Endocrine

    Correct Answer
    C. Lymphatic
    Explanation
    The lymphatic system assists with removing foreign material from the blood and maintaining tissue balances. It consists of lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, and lymphoid organs. Lymphatic vessels collect excess fluid, waste products, and foreign substances from the tissues and transport them to the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes filter the lymph, removing any harmful substances such as bacteria or viruses. The lymphatic system also plays a role in immune responses, as it contains lymphocytes that help fight off infections. Therefore, the lymphatic system is responsible for maintaining the cleanliness and balance of the body's tissues.

    The oesophagus is a type of what part of the body system? 

    • A.

      Digestive

    • B.

      Respiratory

    • C.

      Urinary

    • D.

      Nervous

    Correct Answer
    A. Digestive
    Explanation
    The oesophagus is a part of the digestive system. It is a muscular tube that connects the throat to the stomach and is responsible for transporting food from the mouth to the stomach for digestion. The digestive system is responsible for breaking down food into nutrients that can be absorbed by the body. The respiratory system is responsible for breathing and gas exchange, the urinary system for filtering and eliminating waste from the body, and the nervous system for coordinating and controlling bodily functions. Therefore, the correct answer is Digestive.

    The term superior means "high or above something." 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The term "superior" does not mean "high or above something." In fact, it means "higher in rank, status, or quality." So, the given statement is incorrect.

  • 7. 

    A deeply thombosed vein has been removed from a person. This vein was once part of the circulatory system. True or false? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a thrombosed vein refers to a vein that has developed a blood clot, which can be dangerous if left untreated. In such cases, the vein may need to be surgically removed to prevent further complications. Since the vein was once part of the circulatory system, its removal would indeed mean that a part of the circulatory system has been taken out.

    The skeletal and movement system encourages blood supply to the body. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The skeletal and movement system encourages blood supply to the body because when muscles contract during movement, they squeeze the blood vessels, helping to push blood back towards the heart. This increases blood circulation and ensures that oxygen and nutrients are delivered to all parts of the body. Additionally, physical activity stimulates the production of new blood vessels, further enhancing blood supply.

    The intergumentary system controls the loss of bodily fluids as well as hair growth. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The integumentary system is responsible for protecting the body from external factors, regulating body temperature, and housing sensory receptors. It does not control the loss of bodily fluids or hair growth. The loss of bodily fluids is primarily regulated by the urinary system, while hair growth is controlled by hormones and genetics. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Morphogenesis is a term referring to: 

    • A.

      Changes in a person from childhood to adulthood

    • B.

      Formation of new cells

    • C.

      The changing process of genetic strands

    • D.

      Change in size, shape or reaction of an organ

    Correct Answer
    D. Change in size, shape or reaction of an organ
    Explanation
    Morphogenesis refers to the process of change in size, shape, or reaction of an organ. It involves the development and formation of the structure and function of an organ during its growth and maturation. This term is commonly used in biology to describe the dynamic changes that occur in living organisms as they develop and adapt to their environment. It does not refer to changes in a person from childhood to adulthood, formation of new cells, or the changing process of genetic strands.
