Work in groups on these problems. You should try to answer the questions without referring to your textbook. If you get stuck, try asking another group for help.

Circle the correct answer

1. A tissue is: a collection of nuclei / a collection of organelles / a collection of cells / a collection of organs.
2. The four major tissue types are: epithelial / fat / connective / bone / muscle / nervous / blood.
3. Epidermal tissue: protects and supports the body / covers body surfaces / is responsible for movement / lines hollow organs / transmits nerve impulses / forms glands.
4. The inside of blood vessels is lined with: cuboidal epithelium / squamous epithelium / transitional epithelium / columnar epithelium.
5. The tissue illustrated below is: cuboidal epithelium / adipose tissue / squamous epithelium / loose connective tissue / blood.

6. The kidney tubules are lined with: cuboidal epithelium / squamous epithelium / transitional epithelium / columnar epithelium?
7. Where is ciliated columnar epithelium NOT found : in the kidney tubule / lining the fallopian tubes / lining the trachea / lining the small intestine?
8. Stratified epithelia: were laid down many centuries ago / are more important than other tissues / consist of several layers of cells / always occur in straight lines.
9. Transitional epithelium allows the: arteries to expand / skin to stretch / uterus to contract / bladder to stretch.
10. The tissue illustrated below is: squamous epithelium / columnar epithelium / squamous stratified epithelium / transitional epithelium / lymph

11. Non keratinised stratified squamous epithelium does NOT OCCUR: lining the vagina / covering the body / lining the mouth / lining the uterus.
12. The surface cells of keratinised stratified squamous epithelium are continually: dying / changing shape / being recycled / being shed from the surface.
13. Which of the following are NOT found in connective tissue?:Cells / fibres / minerals / fluid matrix / cilia.
14. Which of the following are NOT connective tissues: blood / fingernails / tendon / bone / saliva / adipose tissue / cartilage?
15. Which of the following muscle tissues has branched fibres, intercalated discs between adjacent cells and contracts automatically: striated voluntary muscle / smooth involuntary muscle / cardiac muscle?
16. Which of the following muscle tissues has long fibres with cross bands and nuclei on the surface? Striated voluntary muscle / smooth involuntary muscle / cardiac muscle?
17. Which muscle tissue moves bones? striated voluntary muscle / smooth involuntary muscle / cardiac muscle.
18. The tissue illustrated below is: striated muscle / blood / squamous epithelium / cartilage / transitional epithelium

19. Which muscle tissue is found in blood vessel walls, in the gut wall and in glands? striated voluntary muscle / smooth involuntary muscle / cardiac muscle.
20. The tissue illustrated below is: striated muscle / tendon / smooth muscle / transitional epithelium / cardiac muscle
