  1. What is the main function of a Kidney 

    A) Maintain the body’s pH balance
    B) Excretion of wastes
    C)Maintain water and ion balance
    D) Production of Hormones
    C)Maintain water and ion balance
  2. What is the difference between a Juxtamedullary and Cortical Nephron?

    A) Juxtamedullary nephrons are more frequent than cortical nephrons
    B) Juxtamedullary and cortical nephrons have similar length of the loops of Henle
    C) Only cortical nephrons contain proximal tubules
    D) Renal corpuscles of cortical nephrons are higher up in the renal cortex than juxtamedullary nephrons
    E) There is no difference between the two nephrons
    D) Renal corpuscles of cortical nephrons are higher up in the renal cortex than
  3. The two main structures of the nephron are?
    • 1. The renal corpuscle.
    • 2. The tubule
  4. Correct Flow of Blood in the Kidney ?

    A) Renal Artery - Afferent Arteriole - Glomerular Capillaries - Efferent Arteriole - Peritubular Capillaries –Venule - Renal Vein

    B) Renal Artery - Efferent Arteriole - Glomerular Capillaries - Afferent Arteriole - Peritubular Capillaries -Venule - Renal Vein

    C) Renal Artery - Afferent Arteriole - Peritubular Capillaries - Efferent Arteriole - Glomerular Capillaries–Venule - Renal Vein


    (D) Renal Vein – Venule - Peritubular Capillaries - Efferent Arteriole- Glomerular Capillaries - Afferent Arteriole - Renal Artery
