    • C.

    Correct Answer
    A. 13-16 years old
    Explanation
    Puberty is the stage of development when sexual maturity is reached. It is characterized by physical changes such as growth spurts, voice deepening, and the development of secondary sexual characteristics. For boys, puberty typically begins between the ages of 13 and 16. During this time, the body starts producing hormones like testosterone, which leads to the growth of facial hair, increased muscle mass, and the maturation of reproductive organs. While some boys may experience puberty earlier or later, the range of 13-16 years old is generally considered the average age for the onset of puberty in boys.

    Puberty is the stage of development when a child's body undergoes significant changes, preparing them for sexual maturity. For girls, puberty typically begins between the ages of 11 and 14. During this time, they experience physical changes such as breast development, growth spurts, and the start of menstruation. Hormonal changes also occur, leading to emotional and psychological changes. The given answer, 11-14 years old, accurately reflects the general age range when girls typically begin puberty.

    Puberty happens because our kidney releases a hormone that casues physical changes - so that we can begin to think like an adult.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Puberty is a natural process that occurs due to the release of hormones by the reproductive system, not the kidneys. These hormones cause physical changes in the body and are responsible for the development of secondary sexual characteristics, such as breast development in females and facial hair growth in males. While puberty is a milestone in the transition from childhood to adulthood, it does not directly impact an individual's ability to think like an adult. Therefore, the statement is false.

    B. Sperm
    Explanation
    During puberty, boys start producing sperm, which is necessary for the creation of a human being. Sperm is the male reproductive cell that fertilizes the female egg, leading to the formation of a zygote and eventually a developing embryo. This process is essential for sexual reproduction and the continuation of the human species.

    Correct Answer
    C. Voice Deepens | pubic hair grows | Sperm can be produced | Body grows taller |
    Explanation
    During puberty, boys experience various physical changes. One of these changes is that their voice deepens as the larynx, or voice box, grows larger. Additionally, boys start to develop pubic hair as a result of increased hormone production. Another change is the production of sperm, which marks the beginning of fertility. Lastly, boys tend to experience a growth spurt during puberty, causing their bodies to grow taller.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The hormone responsible for boys to start puberty is actually called testosterone, not estrogen. Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone. Testosterone is responsible for the development of male secondary sexual characteristics such as deepening of the voice, growth of facial and body hair, and increased muscle mass.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. Testosterone is actually the hormone responsible for male puberty, not female puberty. In girls, the hormone that triggers puberty is called estrogen. Estrogen plays a crucial role in the development of secondary sexual characteristics in females, such as breast development and the onset of menstruation.

    The pituitary gland is the part of your brain that secretes hormones that start puberty.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The pituitary gland is indeed responsible for secreting hormones that initiate the process of puberty. These hormones include follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), which stimulate the production of sex hormones such as estrogen in females and testosterone in males. As a result, the pituitary gland plays a crucial role in the onset of puberty and the development of secondary sexual characteristics.
