Sunday Challenge #36 – A Quiz on the Human Body

Team StoryWeavers|August 01, 2022, 12:07 IST| 502

Welcome to BYJU’S Sunday Challenge. In this edition, we take a look at our own selves as we get quizzing and unravel the mysteries of the human body! 


You can take a shot at the questions and field your guesses in the comments section below. Answers will be revealed on subsequent Sundays in the comment section. The fastest entries to get all questions right win a pair of Bluetooth headphones. 

Ready? Here are your questions:

Question 1

If someone were to “tickle your funny bone”, they would be anatomically wrong. What actually is the ‘funny bone’?

Question 2

One wouldn’t think we share a lot with African Giraffes apart from the fact that we are both mammals. But astoundingly, there is a certain part of the anatomy that has the same number of bones in both giraffes and adult humans. Which part of the body?

Question 3

The ‘Islets of Langerhans’ were discovered by Paul Langerhans in 1869. Where would you find them?

Question 4

The ceremonial headgear pictured below lends its name to a very important part of the human body. It could refer to any one of the four features in one of the most important organs of the body. What is it?

Question 5

Located in the centre of the brain, this gland produces a hormone called melatonin, which regulates sleep patterns. Philosopher and mathematician Rene Decartes described it as the ‘seat of the soul’. Identify this tiny, but very important organ.

Take your guesses in the comments section below. Winners of this edition, along with the answers will be revealed next Sunday, so keep your eyes peeled!
