    - Cata- means down, lower, or under, and is often used to indicate a breakdown or destruction.
    - Dys- means difficult, painful, or abnormal, and is used to indicate a problem or dysfunction.
    - Hemi- means half or partial, and is used to indicate something that is only a part or portion of a whole.

    Which of the following describes the increasing of a joint's angle?

    • A.

      Flexion

    • B.

      Extension

      Hyperflexion

    Correct Answer
    B. Extension
    Explanation
    Extension describes the increasing of a joint's angle. It refers to the movement that opens or straightens a joint, increasing the angle between the bones involved. Flexion, on the other hand, is the opposite movement, which decreases the angle between the bones. Hyperflexion is an excessive or extreme flexion of a joint beyond its normal range of motion.

    A sheep's heart has two ventricles.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A sheep's heart has two ventricles. This is because, like most mammals, sheep have a four-chambered heart consisting of two atria and two ventricles. The ventricles are the lower chambers of the heart responsible for pumping oxygenated blood to the body and deoxygenated blood to the lungs. Having two ventricles allows for efficient separation of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood, ensuring proper circulation throughout the body.

    CBC stands for Complete Blood Count.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The correct answer is true because CBC does indeed stand for Complete Blood Count. A Complete Blood Count is a common blood test that provides information about the different components of blood, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It is used to diagnose and monitor various medical conditions, including infections, anemia, and leukemia. Therefore, CBC is an essential test in medical practice.
