Tissues Quiz Key

1.)    The human body’s levels of organization go in the following order: Cells, Organs, Tissues, Systems, Organismal. F

2.)    The primary role of epithelial tissue is to support other structures/tissues F

3.)    Elastic fibers have the highest tensile strength of the connective tissue fibers F

4.)    Many tissues are almost exclusively composed of cells, connective tissue is an exception. T

5.)    The primary cell type of connective tissue proper is the Fibroblast T

6.)    osseus tissue and hyaline cartilage both contain lacunae T

7.)    At any given time, the body’s areolar connective tissue should contain the same (approximately) amount of fluid as the blood T

8.)    The primary structural difference between dense regular and dense irregular connective tissue is

  1. Relative ratios of cell type
  2. Collagen fiber orientation
  3. Amount of chondrocytes
  4. All of the above

9.)    Which of the following tasks best suits stratified squamous epithelia

  1. Absorption within the digestive tract
  2. Filtration within the kidney tubules
  3. Protection in areas of high abrasion (epidermis)
  4. None of the above

10.) The keratinized version of stratified squamous epithelium is found in the _____________ and the non keratinized version is found in the ___________

  1. Bladder, Kidney tubules
  2. Trachea, bronchi
  3. Epidermis, mouth/esophagus

13.) Which tissue would you expect to find in area requiring tensile strength in multiple directions (for example: fibrous capsules of joints and organs)

  1. Dense Regular
  2. Dense Irregular
  3. Areolar
  4. Adipose

14.)  Why is hyaline cartilage so resistant to compression

  1. Its large number of matrix maintaining chondrocytes
  2. It is mainly composed of fluid
  3. Large amount of fibroblasts
  4. Large number of elastic fibers

16.) What is the most widespread tissue in the body?

  1. Epithelial
  2. Connective
  3. Nervous
  4. Muscle

17.) Which are functions of Areolar connective tissue

  1. Some Nutrient Storage
  2. Fluid storage
  3. Site of our immediate immune response (inflammation)
  4. All of the above

18.)  Which tissue lines the inside of the heart, arteries, arterioles, and is the primary tissue of capillaries?

  1. Mesothelium
  2. Endothelium
  3. Parietal Pleura
  4. Visceral Pleura

19.)  Some common connective tissue characteristics include

  1. A common mesenchymal origin
  2. Varying vascularity

  2. Underlying cells of the connective tissue
  3. Glandular epithelia
  4. None of the above
