  1. From memory (been a while since I did anatomy and physiology), the vena cava carries blood from (C) upper body to the heart; the master gland is the (C) pituitary gland (although the thyroid does also control a lot of endocrine functions); a patient showing kaposi’s sarcomas is almost certainly infected with (B) HIV, and has probably already developed AIDS as a result; and the exocrine gland of those four is (D) the mammary gland (the other 3 are all endocrine glands).

  3. Q1 – C
    Vena Cavae brings back deoxygenated blood back from the body to the heart . Superior vena cava brings blood from head , neck and forearms ( upper body ) to the heart and the inferior vena cava brings back blood from the liver , kidneys and jind limbs etc ( lower body ) back to the heart .
    Q3 – C
    Pituitary gland plays an important role as a ‘controller’ . It secretes a number of hormones, which control the function of several endocrine gland. This is why the pituitary gland is often referred to as the ‘master gland’ .
    Q6 – B
    Kaposi’s sarcoma is a symptom of HIV . It is the cancer of blood vessels .
    Q8 – D
    Exocrine gland are glands that have a duct or tube for carrying away their secretion .

  4. Superior Vena Cava receives blood from the upper body.

    A patient having Kaposi’s Sarcoma also Likely to be infected with HIV. (not sure)

    I guess it’s mammary, because Pineal, Thymus and Testis are endocrine. Testis is both endocrine and exocrine.
