Human Skeletal System Trivia

Hi and welcome to the EpicWin Skeletal System Quiz. This quiz is linked with another one of our top quizzes “Bones of the body quiz”. If you wanted to engage in a trivia-style quiz about the Skeletal system then you have come to the right place. It’s obvious that humans have a very complex skeletal system. Most people vaguely know what the skeletal system actually does apart from holding us together. 

It’s got a very complex job to do and it doesn’t end at holding us together. We hope you can show us how much you know about the skeletal system in this quiz. This is not the only science quiz we have for you guys. We have a 20 Amino Acid quiz, Amino Acid structure trivia-style quiz. We also have a one-letter and 3 letter code quiz. You could say we have gone science mad.

What is this quiz about?

Your job on this skeletal system quiz is to answer all the questions correctly that you will be asked. Each question will be about different parts or aspects of the skeletal system. This quiz is made for people who want to get to know the different parts of the skeletal system and how it works in a simplified way. Think you got what it takes to get all the questions correct? Learn how to play below and get started.

This skeletal system quiz has been classed as Easy/Moderate by the EpicWin team. We feel because most of the questions are fairly obvious there should be a decent amount of people who should get a lot of the questions correct. You will also have ten questions to answer in this quiz. Each question has a maximum of four answers to choose from.

For each question, there is only one correct answer.  If an incorrect answer is given you will be able to advance onto the next question. However, at the end of the quiz, all of the questions that you got wrong will be shown to you again. You will have to answer all of them correctly in order to get your Prize. Cool online quizzes.

Skeletal System Roles

Getting you ready for our Skeletal System Quiz

All the bones and joints are in the skeletal system. The skeleton is made up of numerous cells, protein fibres, and minerals, each of which acts like an organ in its own right. Skeletal tissue functions as a framework to support and preserve soft tissues. Muscles can also attach to the bones of the skeletal system, allowing the user to perform motions at the joints. Redbone marrow inside of our bones produces new blood cells.

Like all other vertebrates, the human skeleton is made up of two main sections, each having its own origins and exhibiting certain unique characteristics. The axial vertebral column, the spine, and the part of the skull containing the brain constitute the axial. The appendicular comprises the pelvic and pectoral girdles and the bones and cartilages. You may get more details about the third division of the axial skeleton (which includes the lower jaw, a few of the higher jawbone segments, and the branchial arches, which include the hyoid bone) in this article.

What could harm the Skeletal System?

Bone fractures

Also referred to as a fractured bone, a fracture is a break in the bone caused by damage or injury. Common injuries, such as those caused by automobile accidents or falls, can lead to breaks. A fracture may be classified according to the kind and location of the break.

These are metabolic bone disorders that involve bone structure or strength. Vitamin D insufficiency, bone loss, and the use of certain medicines, such as steroids or chemotherapy, may all contribute to osteoporosis.

The Skull

Sometimes, the cranium the portion of the skull that encloses the brain is referred to as the braincase, although this is a deceptive nickname because of the very tight link to the senses, such as sight, hearing, smell, and taste, and to other structures.

Pectoral and sternum

sternum

The sternum, or breastbone, is a thin, flat bone that is positioned in the central thoracic region’s anterior side. Costal cartilage links to the ribs via narrow strips of cartilage. The thoracic area has 12 pairs of ribs joined to the sternum, making up the ribcage. “True ribs” are the first seven ribs and their costal cartilage connects the thoracic vertebrae directly to the sternum. To clarify, we call the last three ribs (ninth to tenth) “false ribs,” as they link to the sternum through cartilage which is related to the cartilage of the seventh rib. Floating ribs, also called fake ribs, have no cartilage connection to the sternum and so do not count as real ribs.

The Hyoid

The hyoid is most useful in the role of anchoring the tongue. It is found between the jaw and the larynx, or voice box, near the root of the tongue in the front of the neck. This bone is without articulation and serves only as an anchoring base.

Lower limb & Pelvic Girdle

The pelvic girdle joins the lower limb (leg) bones to the axial skeleton, formed by the left and right hip bones.

pelvic girdle

The femur is the biggest bone in the body and is also located in the area of the thigh (femoral). The femur is the ball and socket hip joint’s primary structure, while the tibia and patella are the knee joint’s primary structures. Unlike other bones, the patella (kneecap) is one of the few bones that do not appear during foetal development. The patella is formed early in development to support the knee as the kid is learning to walk and crawl.
