______ muscle pulls on bones and _______ muscle regulates the diameter of blood vessels.

  1. a. Skeletal / cardiac
  2. b. Smooth / cardiac
  3. c. Skeletal / smooth
  4. d. Smooth / skeletal

Summary Introduction

Introduction: The body tissues contain a group of specialized cells which can be organized as organs. A human body involves 4 main types of tissues- Muscle tissue, connective tissue, epithelial tissue and nervous tissue. Muscle tissues are long and fibrous excitable cells which help for the muscle contraction of the body with the help of ATP. Muscle tissue can be classified into three – skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle tissue.

Explanation

Reason for the correct answer:

Muscle tissues can be classified into three – skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle tissue. The skeletal muscles are the voluntary muscles which help in the movement of bones and other structures. The skeletal muscles are connected to the bones with the help of tendons. The smooth muscles are involuntary muscles that line the blood vessels and forms the walls of some hollow organs including urinary tract, digestive tract and reproductive tract.

Option c. is given as “Skeletal/smooth”.

The skeletal muscles are the voluntary muscles which help in the movement of bones and other structures and smooth muscles are involuntary muscles that line the blood vessels and forms the walls of some hollow organs.

Hence the correct answer is option c.

Reason for the incorrect answer:

Option a. is given as, “Skeletal/cardiac”.

The skeletal muscles are the voluntary muscles which help in the movement of bones and other structures but the cardiac muscles are present in the heart walls...
