Question 1 of 24

Medal-premium 1

What is homeostasis?

Select one or more of the following:

Medal-premium 1

What are the things that need to be controlled in our body?

Select one or more of the following:

  • Body temperature

  • Water content

  • Ion content

  • Blood sugar levels

Question 3 of 24

Medal-premium 1

What is the temperature at which enzymes work best?

Question 4 of 24

Medal-premium 1

Why is it important to control our body's water content?

Select one or more of the following:

  • Too much water could move into or out of our cells which will damage the cells.

  • Too much water could move into the cells making us over-hydrated and the cells won't work as well.

Question 5 of 24

Medal-premium 1

If the ion (or water) content of the body is wrong, it could upset the balance between ion and water. Why is this?

Select one or more of the following:
