Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What name is given to the outermost layer of the skin?

Answer: Epidermis

The Epidermis is the outermost layer of human skin, and provides a barrier against pathogens entering the body, as well as regulating the amount of water excreted by the body.
2. What is the anatomical name for the breastbone?

Answer: Sternum

The Sternum is a t-shaped bone in the human chest, connected by cartilage to the ribs. It is an important bone that can protect major organs such as the heart and liver from trauma in the event of an accident.
3. Which one of these organs is found in the female human body but NOT in the male human body?

Answer: Ovaries

Ovaries are the organs that produce eggs in the female body, as well as secreting hormones such as estrogen.
Only males have testicles, whilst both sexes possess a pineal gland and a hypothalamus.
4. Which organ of the human body produces insulin?

Answer: Pancreas

The pancreas is part of the digestive system and produces insulin, an important hormone which regulates blood sugar level.
5. Which organ in the human body is enclosed within a sac called the pericardium?

Answer: Heart

The heart is the organ which pumps blood around the body. The pericardium is a double-walled membrane enclosing the heart.
6. What is the name of the largest artery in the human body?

Answer: Aorta

The aorta distributes oxygenated blood throughout the body, and runs from the heart to the abdomen, where it splits into two common iliac arteries.
7. Which small organ of the human body concentrates bile and helps digest fat?

Answer: Gallbladder

The gallbladder is situated just below the liver. It collects bile from the liver and uses it to emulsify fat in partly digested food.
8. Also known as the elbow bone, which one of these bones is located in the forearm?

Answer: Ulna

There are two bones in the forearm, the radius and the ulna. The ulna is the inner, and slightly longer, of the two. It runs between the elbow and the wrist.
9. Which one of the following is a tiny bone found in the inner ear?

Answer: Stapes

The stapes is sometimes referred to as the stirrup, and is one of three tiny bones in the inner ear - the others are the incus and the malleus. Its function is to transmit sound vibrations from the incus to the membrane of the inner ear.
10. The initial letters of the correct answers to questions one to nine will spell out, in order, the name of which muscular tube which leads from the pharynx to the stomach?

Answer: Esophagus

The esophagus takes its name form the Greek for "entrance for eating". The more common name for this organ is the gullet. There is a constrictor muscle located just before the opening to the esophagus which prevents it opening except when swallowing or vomiting. Esophagus is the American English spelling, while British English uses oesophagus - either is acceptable as the correct answer.
