    • D.

      Bladder

    Correct Answer
    C. Waste in urine

      Kidney

    • B.

      Bladder

    • C.

      Pelvis

    • D.

      Cyst

    Correct Answer
    B. Bladder
    Explanation
    The term "cysto" is commonly used as a prefix in medical terminology and refers to the bladder. Therefore, in this context, "cysto" is associated with the bladder. The other options mentioned, such as kidney, pelvis, and cyst, are not directly related to the term "cysto" and are therefore not the correct answer.

    Glomerulo

    • A.

      Urine

    • B.

      Pertaining to urine

    • C.

      Pelvis

    • D.

      Nephron part, little ball

    Correct Answer
    D. Nephron part, little ball
    Explanation
    The term "glomerulo" refers to a nephron part that is shaped like a little ball. This term is commonly used in the context of the urinary system. The glomerulus is a network of tiny blood vessels located in the kidney that filters waste products and excess fluid from the blood to form urine. Therefore, the given answer accurately describes the meaning of "glomerulo" as a nephron part that resembles a little ball.

      Urethra

    • C.

      Kidney

    • D.

      Bladder

    Correct Answer
    C. Kidney
    Explanation
    The given answer "kidney" is correct because the other terms mentioned in the question - nephro, pelvis, urethra, and bladder - are all related to the urinary system and are parts of the kidney. The kidney is an essential organ responsible for filtering waste products from the blood and producing urine. It is also connected to the other mentioned terms, such as the renal pelvis (which collects urine from the kidney), the urethra (which carries urine from the bladder to outside the body), and the bladder (which stores urine before it is released). Therefore, kidney is the correct answer.

    Peritoneo

    • A.

      Lining of the abdominal organs

    • B.

      Nephron part, little ball

    • C.

      Waste in urine

    • D.

      Pertaining to urine

    Correct Answer
    A. Lining of the abdominal organs
    Explanation
    The term "peritoneo" refers to the lining of the abdominal organs. This lining is called the peritoneum and it covers the organs in the abdominal cavity, providing support and protection. It is a thin, transparent membrane that helps to hold the organs in place and allows them to move and function properly. The peritoneum also plays a role in the absorption and transport of nutrients and waste products. Therefore, the correct answer is "lining of the abdominal organs".

    Correct Answer
    D. Pelvis
    Explanation
    The term "pyelo" refers to the renal pelvis, which is a part of the kidney. The renal pelvis is a funnel-shaped structure that collects urine from the kidney and transports it to the ureter. Therefore, the correct answer is pelvis.

    Correct Answer
    A. Ureter

    Correct Answer
    B. Urethra
    Explanation
    The correct answer is urethra. The urethra is a tube that connects the bladder to the external opening of the body. It allows urine to pass from the bladder out of the body. The other options mentioned, such as bladder, kidney, and pelvis, are all parts of the urinary system but are not directly related to the function of the urethra.

    Correct Answer
    C. Urine
    Explanation
    The question mentions "uri" and "nephron" which are both related to the urinary system. It also mentions "organs" and "kidney" which are major components of the urinary system. Therefore, it can be inferred that the correct answer is "urine" as it is the product of the urinary system and is directly related to the given terms.

      Cyst

    Correct Answer
    A. Pertaining to urine
    Explanation
    The term "uric" refers to something that is related to urine. It could be used to describe a substance, condition, or process that is specifically associated with urine. This term is often used in medical contexts to describe conditions or tests related to the urinary system or the excretion of waste products through urine. It is important to note that "uric" is not synonymous with "urinary," as "uric" specifically refers to urine itself, while "urinary" refers to the entire urinary system.

    D. Urine
    Explanation
    The given answer "urine" is the most logical explanation based on the context provided. The question mentions "urocyst tumors" and "lining of abdominal organs," which suggests a connection to the urinary system. Since "urine" is a waste product excreted by the urinary system, it is likely to be the correct answer in this case.
