  • Question 1
    900 seconds
    Q. How many bones does an adult human have?
    answer choices
    210
    206
    200
    296
  • Question 2
    900 seconds
    Q. How is cartilage important in the skeletal system?
    answer choices
    cartilage provides the connection from one bone to another bone. For example, your knee has cartilage that connects the upper leg bone to the lower leg bone.
    cartilage provides the connection from muscle to bone. For example, the biceps brachii is attached to your radius lower arm bone.
    cartilage is found at the end of bones and is made of tough protein fibers, called collagen, within which cartilage provides smooth surfaces for bone to rub against.
    none of these answers are correct because cartilage is part of the muscular system.
  • Question 3
    900 seconds
    Q. Which of the following makes up the structure of your skeletal system?
    answer choices
    ligaments
    cartilage
    bones
    all of the answers are correct
  • Question 4
    900 seconds
    Q. Which of the following is/are functions of the skeletal system
    answer choices
    The skeletal system provides support to our body.
    The skeletal system provides support to our body, and protection for our soft organs of the body.
    The skeletal system provides support to our body, protection for our soft organs of the body, and work with muscles to aid in the movement of our body.
    The skeletal system provides support to our body, protection for our soft organs of the body, work with muscles to aid in the movement of our body, and the production of our Red blood cells found within red bone marrow.
  • Question 5
    900 seconds
    Q. Compact bone can be defined as
    answer choices
    the dense outer layer of the bone
    found at the center of the bone, within which is storage for mineral deposits.
    the producer of red blood cells found within our body.
    the producer of white blood cells found within our body.
  • Question 6
    900 seconds
    Q. Which of the following structures found within bones is the producer of red blood cells?
    answer choices
    spongy bone
    compact bone
    red bone marrow
    yellow bone marrow
  • Question 7
    900 seconds
    Q. Why do babies have more red bone marrow than adults?
    answer choices
    Red bone marrow produces white blood cells, within which babies are able to fight off disease and sickness.
    Red bone marrow produces calcium for the bones, within which the bones are able to slowly calcify as they grow.
    Red bone marrow produces red blood cells. These red blood cells are able to produce oxygen for the body, within which this process will allow babies to grow.
    Red bone marrow produces homeostasis antibodies found within babies bodies. This is to better fend off diseases and sickness.
  • Question 8
    900 seconds
    Q. As we grow, cartilage is replaced by calcified bone
    answer choices
    True
    False
  • Question 9
    900 seconds
    Q. A baby is born with zones of cartilage in its bones that allow growth of the bones. These areas, called growth plate, allow the bones to grow longer as the child grows. By the time the child reaches an age of about 18 to 25 years, all of the cartilage in the growth plate has been replaced by bone. This stops the bone from growing any longer.
    answer choices
    True
    False
  • Question 10
    900 seconds
    Q. Why is it necessary that humans have bones in their body?
    answer choices
    Bones aid in the protection of our soft organs, such as the heart, lungs, and brain.
    Bones produce red and white blood cells, within which red blood cells provide oxygen throughout the body, and white blood cells attack antigens in our body.
    Bone provide the basic structure of the skeletal system in our body.
    all of the answers are correct.
  • Question 11
    900 seconds
    Q. What is the main purpose of cartilage in the skeletal system?
    answer choices
    Cartilage allows you to turn your neck.
    Cartilage protects your soft organs.
    Cartilage prevents your bones from being broken.
    Cartilage cushions bones to keep them from grinding together
  • Question 12
    900 seconds
    Q. Which of the following skeletal system parts is connective tissue that keeps your bones attached to each other?
    answer choices
    joints
    tendons
    cartilage
    ligaments
  • Question 13
    900 seconds
    Q. What is the main function of the sternum in the skeletal system?
    answer choices
    the sternum protects the spinal cord from receiving damage.
    the sternum allows the ribs to expand and contract when a human breathes.
    the sternum connects bone to bone.
    the sternum cushions bones to keep them from grinding together.
  • Question 14
    900 seconds
    Q. Which of the following is the beginning structure of your skeletal system before you are born?
    answer choices
    Ligaments, tendons, joints, and connective tissues.
    ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues.
    cartilage and connective tissues.
    ligaments and tendons.
  • Question 15

    Q. What are the major organs of the skeletal system?
    answer choices
    Ligaments
    Tendons
    Bones
    Heart
