Locomotion and Movement Answer Keys

1) C. Tendon is a tough non-elastic connective tissue that joins a muscle to a bone. It is consists of collagen fibres.

2) C. Sarcolemma is present on the outside of skeletal muscle fibre. In the region of attachment, the sarcolemma is folded to form finger like projections.

3) A. Fascia, actually is a sheet of connective tissue which covers the muscle.

4) A. Elevation

5) C. 45-50 mV (The change in the membrane voltage from -70 mV at rest to +30 mV at the end of depolarization is a 100-mV change. That can also be written as a 0.1-V change.)

6) B. Release of calcium from troponin is wrong; it is released from sarcoplasmic reticulum.

7) B. Thin filaments of I-bands

8) A. Myosin protein forms anistropic band its centers forms ‘M’ line i.e. muscle fibre itself consist of myosin filaments. The cross bridges present in myosin molecules are enzymatic in nature and always tends towards, the center of myosin filament thus causes the contraction of muscle fibre.

9) A. Unstriated, involuntary, visceral msucles.

10) A. Myoglobin and mitochondria

11) C. Both thick and thin bands

12) C. During muscle fatigue due to deposition of lactic acid, cytoplasm becomes acidic thereby enzyme activity stops and food is not oxidized and as the energy is not available, muscular contraction stops.

13) A. Anisotropic or A-band. A-band has its middle a light zone called H-zone.

14) B. Myosin filaments are thicker and confined to the A-bands only. They are composed of myosin protein.

15) C. Involuntary, striated

16) C. Back has maximum muscles

17) D. During muscle contraction, myosin and actin form cross bridges. This complex is known as actomyosin complex.

18) B. Sternum

19) C. Mammals

20) D. Cervical – thoracic – lumbar – sacral – Coccygeal

21) D. Hinge joint

22) D. In aquatic mammals (sirenia) cervical vertebrae are fused into a solid bony mass because of reduced neck in the manatees (sea caw) there are six cervical vertebrae only and the neural arches are sometimes incomplete.

23) D. Fontanelle is a space between the bones of the skull in an infant or fetus, where ossification is not complete and the sutures not fully formed. The main one is between the frontal and parietal

24) A. The greater trochanter and lesser trochanter are projections that serve as points of attachment for the tendons of some of the thigh and buttock muscles.

25) D. Haversian canals are the characteristic features of bone.

26) B. Hinge joints are found in the knee, elbow, ankle and interphalangeal joints.

27) A. Absorb shock

28) C. Glenoid cavity aticulates humerus with scapula.

29) C. Patella is the small bone in knee joint between femur and tibia. It is a sesamoid bone developed in the tendon of quadriceps femoris muscle.

30) C. Each upper arm or branchium of mammals also has a single long humerus bone whose swollen, spherical, and smooth proximal end or “head” fits into a glenoid cavity of the pectoral girdle on its side.
