Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Patella

Answer: on the leg

The patella, or kneecap, is the triangular bone that is attached to the quadriceps tendon and the patellar tendon of the upper and lower leg and covers the knee joint. The inner side of the patella is soft and smooth which reduces friction and allows the knee joint to bend freely and protect it at the same time.
2. Canthus

Answer: around the eye

The canthus is the angle that is formed in the corner of either eye where the upper eyelid meets the lower eyelid. Each eye has two canthi, with the one near the nose being more prominent.
3. Rasceta

Answer: on the wrist

Rasceta are the horizontal creases or wrinkles of the skin that appear just below the hand on the inner side of the wrist. They are easily seen by moving the wrist forward.
4. Tragus

Answer: on the ear

The tragus is a small, slightly pointed, skin covered piece of cartilage located toward the front of the ear. Because the tragus points in a backward direction, it helps to reflect sounds into the ear from behind.
5. Purlicue

Answer: on the hand

The purlicue is not exactly a body part but is the area of space between the thumb and first finger when they are stretched apart. Movie directors make use of their purlicues by stretching their thumbs and forefingers, touching the thumbs together, and forming a kind of view screen to look at scenes.
6. Glabella

Answer: between the eyebrows

The glabella is the most forward projecting spot of the forehead which is the flat space between the eyebrows and above the nose. It is also the name of the underlying bone in that same area.
7. Uvula

Answer: in the throat

The uvula is a cone shaped gland that dangles from the very back of the roof of the mouth at the start of the throat. When eating and swallowing, the uvula helps to block food from entering the nasal cavity. Uvula vibration is also what causes the rough sound when people snore.
8. Frenum

Answer: in the mouth

The frenum, or frenulum, is the skinny band of tissue that connects the floor of the mouth to the underside of the tongue.
9. Gnathion

Answer: on the lower face

The gnathion is the lowest point of the chin, or mandible. It lines up with the nose and the space between your eyes.
10. Philtrum

Answer: above the lip

The philtrum, or medial cleft, is a vertical groove in the middle area of the upper lip just below the nose. In animals, the philtrum aids in carrying scents and odors to the nose and also helps to keep their nasal passages moist.
