With negative feedback, detection of a change brings about a response that ______ the change.

  1. a. reverses
  2. b. accelerates
  3. c. has no effect on
  4. d. mimics

Summary Introduction

Introduction: Homeostasis is the process to resist change in order to maintain a stable and constant internal environment. It involves the interaction among sensory receptors, muscles, brain, and glands in vertebrates. In order to maintain the homeostasis, there involves a mechanism called negative feedback. It involves in the decrease in function in order to maintain the internal environment.

Explanation

Reason for correct answer:

The negative feedback that is the most important mechanism in homeostasis involves the decrease in certain functions. It takes place in response to certain stimulus. It helps to keep the internal temperature near to 37°C. The negative feedback is the process in which a change brings about a response that reverses the change.

Option a. is given as “reverses”.

The negative feedback is the process in which a change brings about a response that reverses the change.

Hence, the correct answer is option a.

Reasons for incorrect answer:

Option b. is given as “accelerates”...
