    • C.

      Skin

    • D.

      Epidermis

    Correct Answer
    B. Lines all the body cavities that open to the exterior part of the body
    Explanation
    A mucous membrane is a thin, moist layer of tissue that lines various body cavities and structures that open to the outside of the body, such as the respiratory, digestive, and reproductive systems. It helps to protect these cavities from infection, traps foreign particles, and produces mucus to keep the tissues moist. The option "lines all the body cavities that open to the exterior part of the body" accurately describes the function and location of a mucous membrane. The other options, dermis, skin, and epidermis, are not directly related to mucous membranes.

    Which type of membrane lines the ventral body cavities that are not open to the exterior body?

    • A.

      Serous membrane

    • B.

      Mucous membrane

    • C.

      Synovial membrane

    • D.

      Meninges

    Correct Answer
    A. Serous membrane
    Explanation
    The serous membrane lines the ventral body cavities that are not open to the exterior body. This type of membrane secretes a lubricating fluid that helps reduce friction between organs and allows them to move smoothly. It consists of two layers: the parietal layer, which lines the cavity walls, and the visceral layer, which covers the organs. The serous membrane is found in cavities such as the pleural cavity (around the lungs), pericardial cavity (around the heart), and peritoneal cavity (around the abdominal organs).

  • 16. 

    Which of the four major tissue types are able to regenerate and repair quickly when injured?

    • A.

      Nervous

    • B.

      Muscle

    • C.

      Epithelial

    • D.

      Connective

    Correct Answer
    C. Epithelial
    Explanation
    Epithelial tissue is able to regenerate and repair quickly when injured. This is because epithelial cells are tightly packed together and have a high rate of cell division. When injured, the surrounding healthy epithelial cells can quickly divide and migrate to cover the damaged area, forming a new layer of tissue. This rapid regeneration helps to protect underlying tissues and maintain the barrier function of epithelial surfaces. In contrast, nervous, muscle, and connective tissues have limited regenerative capacity and may require more time and specialized processes to repair injuries.

    Which of the following is true of an exocrine gland?

    • A.

      Is made of connective tissue

    • B.

      Secretes hormones

    • C.

      Secretes in products to the outside or onto the surface

    • D.

      Only secretes sweat

    Correct Answer
    C. Secretes in products to the outside or onto the surface
    Explanation
    An exocrine gland is a type of gland that secretes its products onto the surface of an organ or directly into a duct that leads to the external environment. This means that it secretes its products to the outside or onto the surface. Exocrine glands are not made of connective tissue, as they are typically composed of epithelial tissue. They also do not secrete hormones, as that is the function of endocrine glands. Finally, exocrine glands do not only secrete sweat, as there are various types of exocrine glands in the body that secrete different substances such as saliva, digestive enzymes, or oil.

    This type of tissue allows for rapid diffusion of oxygen from the aveoli in the lungs to the blood

    • A.

      Osseus

    • B.

      Fascia

    • C.

      Simple squamous

    • D.

      Synovial membrane

    Correct Answer
    C. Simple squamous
    Explanation
    Simple squamous tissue is a single layer of flat cells that allows for rapid diffusion of oxygen from the alveoli in the lungs to the blood. This tissue is thin and allows for efficient exchange of gases due to its large surface area. It is found in the walls of the alveoli, which are the tiny air sacs in the lungs responsible for oxygen exchange with the bloodstream. Simple squamous tissue is well-suited for this function because it allows for easy passage of oxygen molecules through its thin and permeable structure.

    Endocrine and exocrine glands are

    • A.

      Connective tissue

    • B.

      Epithelial tissue

    • C.

      Adipose tissue

    • D.

      Glial tissue

    Correct Answer
    B. Epithelial tissue
    Explanation
    Endocrine and exocrine glands are classified as epithelial tissue because they are derived from the epithelial layer during embryonic development. Epithelial tissue is responsible for the secretion of hormones (endocrine glands) and substances such as enzymes and sweat (exocrine glands). These glands are composed of specialized epithelial cells that are organized in a way to facilitate secretion and transportation of substances. Connective tissue, adipose tissue, and glial tissue do not have the same function or structure as epithelial tissue, making them incorrect choices.
