  • Q2
    Which of the following correctly describes an interaction that occurs between two body systems of a rabbit that helps the rabbit outrun a pursuing coyote?
    The skeletal system releases additional calcium, and the circulatory system retains more sodium in the blood to provide muscles with ions for contraction
    The endocrine system releases hormones that prepare the immune system to deal with possible injuries
    The digestive system increases the rate of digestion, and the excretory system ceases to provide tissues with more nutrients
    The respiratory system increases the breathing rate, and the circulatory system increases blood pressure to provide tissues with more oxygen

  • Q3
    The human digestive system is approximately 900 cm long. Food is moved through the digestive tract primarily by -
    muscular contractions
    the enzymes amylase and pepsin
    hydrochloric acid in the stomach
    bile produced by the pancreas

    What two human systems work together to provide body cells with a constant supply of oxygen while removing carbon dioxide waste products?
    Excretory and integumentary
    Nervous and endocrine
    Muscular and skeletal
    Respiratory and circulatory

  • Q5
    When a person is suddenly cut by a sharp object, a nervous impulse is sent along a sensory neuron to the spinal cord. The impulse is immediately transmitted through motor neurons to produce a response. Which of the following correctly identifies and describes this response?
    It is a voluntary response that is initiated only after the impulse has been carried to the relevant area in the brain
    It is a conditioned response that occurs only to prevent injury
    It is a learned response that does not occur in infants and small children
    It is a reflex response that causes various muscles to contract in order to move away from the object

  • Q6
    Toxoplasmosis is an infection producing brain lesions caused by the parasitic protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. Mice with their gonads removed are more resistant to T. gondii and develop very few lesions on their brain tissue. The graph shows the results of a scientific study of normal adult mice infected with T. gondii. Which systems most likely interact and cause the severity of infections to vary?

  • Q7
    An informational pamphlet in a health clinic describes an interaction between body systems. Which statement identifies the body systems that are directly involved in the interaction described and explains how they accomplish the interaction?
    Question Image
    The excretory system expels the ovum from the ovary, and the nervous system causes the contractions of the smooth tissues of the uterine wall
    The reproductive system produces the ovum, and the muscular system causes the migration of the ovum by peristaltic contractions
    The circulatory system supplies the uterine wall with oxygenated blood, and the immune system prevents damage to the ovum
    The nervous system produces hormones that stimulate the ovum, and the circulatory system moves the ovum into the uterine tube

  • Q8
    Coracias garrulus is a blue bird with an orange-brown back. The offspring of this bird have an effective defense mechanism. The young birds vomit and cover themselves in a foul-smelling orange liquid when they sense a threat by predators. Which two systems alert the young bird to the danger and help produce the vomit it uses as a defense?
    Excretory and reproductive systems
    Integumentary and muscular systems
    Immune and respiratory systems
    Nervous and digestive systems

  • Q10
    During the final stages of human gestation, receptors for the hormone oxytocin increase on the smooth muscle cells of the uterus. The release of oxytocin during labor stimulates the smooth muscle tissue in the wall of the uterus. The vigorous contraction of the uterine smooth muscle helps push the baby through the birth canal so that delivery can occur. This process involves the interaction of which organ systems?
    Endocrine and muscular only
    Endocrine, muscular, and reproductive
    Endocrine, reproductive, and excretory
    Endocrine and reproductive only

  • Q11
    Scientists studying illnesses caused by chemically contaminated food conduct research to minimize the effects of these diseases on society. These chemicals harm the body through interactions between the digestive system and the immune system. Scientists conducting this research are likely to describe which of these interactions between the digestive and immune systems?
    Chemicals enter the digestive system through contaminated foods. Once in the body, the chemical contaminants impair the body's ability to fight off infectious diseases
    When contaminated foods are eaten, the immune system prevents the chemicals from entering the digestive system
    Chemicals enter the immune system through a break in the skin. The chemical contamination is then passed to the digestive system by the circulatory system
    The immune system transforms the chemicals in the contaminated foods into harmless chemicals. These harmless chemicals are then broken down by the digestive system

  • Q12
    Kidneys are part of the excretory system in a human body. They purify the impure blood and send it back to the rest of the body. Which system is mainly responsible for the transport of plasma to the kidneys?
    Muscular system
    Respiratory system
    Nervous system
    Circulatory system

  • Q13
    The picture shows bean-shaped glands called nodes. The clusters of cells in nodes include macrophages that break down viruses and other potentially harmful materials. Nodes also contain cells that produce protein particles capable of capturing harmful materials that flow in tissue fluid through the nodes. Different parts of the body are drained by nodes in different regions of the body. Which body systems are directly responsible for regulating these nodes and protecting the body from harmful materials in tissue fluid?

    Which of the following is an example of the endocrine system directly interacting with the nervous system?
    The vertebrae protect the spinal cord from injury
    Sensory receptors in bones send signals about body position to the brain
    Hormones provide feedback that affects neural processing
    The brain sends signals that control the speed at which food moves through the intestines
