    Which of the following is an aborted long bone?

    • A.

      Ulna of ox

    • B.

      Ulna of horse

    • C.

    • D.

      Ulna of fowl

    • E.

      Ulna of rabbit

    Correct Answer
    B. Ulna of horse
    Explanation
    The ulna of a horse is an aborted long bone because it is a bone that is present in the early stages of development but fails to fully form. In horses, the ulna is a small, non-functional bone that is present in the forelimb but does not contribute to the overall structure or function of the limb. This is in contrast to other animals, such as ox, dog, fowl, and rabbit, where the ulna is a fully formed and functional bone.

    • D.

      Horse

    • E.

      Goat

    Correct Answer
    D. Horse
    Explanation
    The rete mirabile cerebri is a network of blood vessels found in certain animals that helps regulate blood flow to the brain. It is absent in horses, which means that they do not have this specialized mechanism for controlling blood flow in their brains.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Guttural pouches in the horse are associated with

    • A.

      Respiratory function

    • B.

      Cardio-vascular function

    • C.

      Cooling mechanism to brain

    • D.

      Digestive in function

    • E.

      Increasing the cardiac output

    Correct Answer
    B. Cardio-vascular function
    Explanation
    The guttural pouches in horses are associated with cardio-vascular function. These pouches are large air-filled structures located in the head and neck region of the horse. They play a role in cooling the blood that flows to the brain during exercise, helping to regulate the horse's body temperature. Additionally, the guttural pouches contain important blood vessels that supply oxygenated blood to the brain. Therefore, they are involved in maintaining proper blood flow and cardiovascular function in horses.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Sternomandibularis division of Sternocephalicus muscle is absent in ______ species.

    • A.

      Goat

    • B.

      Cattle

      Buffaloe

    • D.

      Sheep

    • E.

      Dog

    Correct Answer
    D. Sheep
    Explanation
    The Sternomandibularis division of the Sternocephalicus muscle is not present in sheep. This muscle division is found in other species such as goats, cattle, buffalo, and dogs. However, in sheep, this particular division is absent.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Longest muscle in the body of animal is

    • A.

      Longissimus costarum

    • B.

      Longissimus dorsi

    • C.

      Longus coli

    • D.

      Common digital extensor

    • E.

      Brachiocephalicus

    Correct Answer
    B. Longissimus dorsi
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Longissimus dorsi. The Longissimus dorsi is a long muscle that runs along the spine and extends from the sacrum to the base of the skull. It is one of the longest muscles in the body of an animal. It helps to extend and laterally flex the spine, and is involved in movements such as arching the back and rotating the trunk.

    First collateral branch of aorta is

    • A.

      Common brachiocephalic trunk

    • B.

      Brachiocephalic trunk

    • C.

      Coronary artery

    • D.

      Right brachial artery

    • E.

      Left brachial artery

    Correct Answer
    C. Coronary artery
    Explanation
    The first collateral branch of the aorta is the coronary artery. This artery supplies oxygenated blood to the heart muscle itself. It branches off from the ascending aorta, just above the aortic valve, and then further divides into smaller branches that supply different regions of the heart. The coronary artery is essential for maintaining the proper functioning of the heart by providing it with the necessary oxygen and nutrients.

    Development of the individual is termed as __________________________

    Correct Answer
    Ontogeny, Phylogeny
    Explanation
    Ontogeny refers to the development and growth of an individual organism from fertilization to adulthood. It involves the changes in structure, function, and behavior that occur during the organism's lifetime. Phylogeny, on the other hand, refers to the evolutionary history and relationships between different species or groups of organisms. Both ontogeny and phylogeny are important in understanding the development and evolution of organisms.

  • 10. 

    Acromian process is absent in ________________________ (species).

    Correct Answer
    Horse
    Explanation
    The acromion process is absent in horses. The acromion process is a bony projection on the scapula (shoulder blade) that provides attachment for muscles and ligaments. In horses, the scapula is relatively flat and lacks this specific projection. This anatomical difference in horses allows for greater flexibility and range of motion in the shoulder joint, which is important for their running and jumping abilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 11.

    Correct Answer
    Cat, Dog
    Explanation
    Supracondyloid foramen is a bony structure located in the humerus bone of both cats and dogs. It is a small opening that allows the passage of nerves and blood vessels. This anatomical feature is not exclusive to any particular species and can be found in both cats and dogs.
