Overview

The multiple-choice questions mentioned here are the basic questions from the chapter- skeletal and muscular system that will help you in getting good scores in exams.

You can get the answers of all the questions along with the explanations here. Therefore, it is very essential to have a look at the following text.

The skeletal and muscular system

Skeleton is the framework of our body. It provides the structure to the body. It is covered with flesh and skin.

The skeleton gives:

  • shape and support to the body.
  • protect our delicate organs.
  • is five times stronger than steel.
  • facilitates movement.

This system includes over 200 bones, cartilage, and ligaments. Bones are hard structures made of living cells and minerals. More than half of the total number of bones are found in our hands and feet.

An adult human has 206 bones and 32 teeth. When you look closer, you will see more structures.

The long bones are in legs and arms. The rib bones are round in shape. The bones have tiny hole in it. Nerves and blood vessels enter the bones through these holes.

Within the long bones, there is a soft, fatty substance which is called bone marrow.

All the blood cells are manufactured within the bone marrow. Red blood cell and white blood cell are within the blood. The red blood cells carry oxygen to the different parts of the body and the white blood cells protect the body against infection.

Different parts of the Skeleton

Skull

  • Hard bony structure which protects the brain is called as skull.
  • Skull is made of 22 bones.
  • There are 8 bones in the head. These bones are interlocked together to cover our head.
  • The balance 14 bones are in the face.
  • The lower jaw is not fixed. This movable lower jaw helps in talking and eating.
  • Balance all these bones are fixed.
  • The upper and lower jaw contains teeth that help us in cutting and chewing the food.

Rib Cage

Here are the details for rib cage:

  • A set of 12 pairs of long curved bones surrounding the chest in the form of cage is nothing but Rib cage.
  • Ribs are joined to the backbone at the back and to the breast bone at the front.
  • Floating ribs are the two pairs of ribs. These two pairs are joined only to the backbone and not to the breast bone.
  • The ribcage protects the heart and the lungs.

Backbone or spine

  • The backbone supports the body and protects the spinal cord.
  • The backbone is also known as vertebral column.
  • It consists of 33 numbers small and hollow bones which are called vertebrae.
  • These bones are arranged in such a way that it forms a tube like structure.
  • It protects the spinal cord and helps us in bending and taking turns.

Limbs

  • The two pairs of limbs have the forelimbs( or arms) and the hind limbs( or legs).
  • The arms are connected to the backbone with the help of shoulder girdle.
  • The thigh bone is also known as femur which is the longest bone in our body, bears the weight of the body.
  • The frontal bone is a flat bone.
  • The patella, also called the knee cap, is a sesamoid bone.
  • Carpals (in the hand) and tarsals (in the feet) are examples of short bones.

Function of Skeleton

  • The skeleton which gives shape, strength and support to the body, helps us to stand.
  • It covers and protects our internal organs and the brain.
  • The backbone protects the spinal cord and the rib cage protects the lungs and heart.
  • It helps in movement of the different body parts.
  • It contains bone marrow where white blood cells and red blood cells are produced.
  • Bones are the storehouse of minerals like calcium and phosphorus.

Joints

The locations where two or more bones meet or join together are called joints. Bones are held together with the help of the joints of strong tissues called ligaments.

Most of the joints can move but the joint in the tooth socket and in the skull can’t move.

Types of joints

The movables joints are of four types. They are:

  • Hinge joint
  • Ball and socket joint
  • Pivot joint
  • Gliding joint
Hinge joint

The joints in elbow, knee, finger and toes can move in one direction only. This type of joint is called hinge joint.

Ball and socket joint

Circular movement of the joints are found in shoulders and hips. Here, one bone that ends in a ball fits into the socket or hollow of another bone. This is called ball and socket joint.

Pivot joint

In this joint, the rounded surface of one bone fits into a ring formed by the other bone. It allows rotation only. This is called pivot joint.

Joint between the neck and the head is a pivot joint.

Gliding joint

It allows movement between the connecting bones like wrist, ankle or the vertebrae of the spine.

Muscles

Muscles are fleshy bundles of thin, elastic like material in the body which are connected to the bones by strong fibres called tendons. There are 650 different kinds of muscles in our body and each is responsible for a particular movement.

Eye muscle is the most active muscle in our body.

Types of Muscles

There are three types of muscles in our body:

  • voluntary
  • involuntary
  • cardiac.
Voluntary or Skeletal Muscles

Most of the muscles in our body are under our control. In arms, legs, eyes, tongue, etc., these muscles are found.

Involuntary Muscles or Smooth Muscles

The muscles which are not in our control are called involuntary muscles. They work automatically. They are found in our stomach, intestitine, etc.

Cardiac or heart muscles

These muscles are found in the heart. They are involuntary and work throughout our life without stopping or getting tired.

How do Muscles work?

Muscles work in pairs by contraction and expansion. A contracted muscle becomes tighter and shorter. When an expanded muscle is relaxed it goes back to its original shape. The biceps and triceps in our body arms are voluntary muscles that work together.

Functions of muscles

Important roles of muscles are:

  • Movement of the human body are a result of muscle contraction. They pull the bones to cause movements.
  • Muscles hold our joints firmly and prevent them from being damaged while moving.
  • Skeletal muscles help in maintaining our body posture.
  • Muscles produce heat when they use energy.

You must appear for the test of 25 marks on the skeletal and muscular system . After completion of the test, you can check the answers and can come to know how much you are prepared. I hope that the article is helpful to you. Thank you for reading. Best wishes!
