All of the following are endocrine glands EXCEPT:

steroid hormones.
fat soluble hormones
peptide hormones.
second messengers.
3: This gland apparently helps regulates circadian rhythms, such as sleep-wake cycles, and reproductive behavior.
pineal gland
pituitary gland
thyroid gland
adrenal gland
4: All of the following are hormones of the anterior pituitary EXCEPT
human growth hormone (GH).
follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).
parathyroid hormone(PTH).
thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
5: Antidiuretic hormone and oxytocin are stored and released by the
posterior pituitary gland
anterior pituitary gland
thyroid gland
adrenal gland
6: Calcitonin is a hormone of the
adrenal cortex
thyroid gland
pituitary gland
thymus gland
7: Mineralcorticoids are produced in the
adrenal cortex
pineal gland
all of the above
8: Which of the following hormones are responsible for the “fight-or-flight” response?
epinephrine and norepinephrine.
insulin and glucagon.
estrogen and progesterone.
thyroxin and melatonin.
9: The gland secretes insulin.
pancreatic islets
10: Dwarfism and giantism can occur from abnormal amounts of what hormone?


  1. 1) sebaceous glands
    2) steroid hormones
    3) pineal gland
    4) parathyroid hormone
    5) posterior pituitary
    6) thyroid gland
    7) adrenal cortex
    8) adrenaline and noradrenaline (sorry; i’m english :-))
    9) pancreatic islets
    10) somatotrophin

  2. 1.sebaceous glands. 2.second messengers. 3. pineal gland. 4.parathyroid hormone.5. posterior pituitary gland. 6.thyroid gland. 7.adrenal cortex. 8. epinephrine and norepinephine. 9.pancreatic islets. 10. somatotropin.
    Here you are but please, check these answers ( I am no endocrinologist).

  3. 1. sebaceous glands
    2. steroid hormones. (I think)
    3. pineal gland
    4. parathyroid hormone(PTH). (A guess!)
    5) thyroid gland (??)
    6.thyroid gland
    7. adrenal cortex
    8. epinephrine and norepinephrine.
    9. pancreatic islets
    10. somatotrophin
    Change #5 to posterior pituitary gland (Just checked), but #2 is correct.
    Good luck. 😉
