MCQs on Muscle Contraction For NEET 2021

Muscle contraction in the body is triggered when a signal is sent by the central nervous system through the motor neuron. The neuromuscular junction is found between the sarcolemma and a motor neuron. Whenever a neural signal arrives at the junction, acetylcholine is secreted causing an action potential in the sarcolemma to be generated. Take this short quiz of 10 questions on muscle contraction.

1. The length of this is reduced while the muscle contracts

(a) sarcomere

(b) I-Band

(c) A-Band

(d) H-Zone

Answer: (c)

2. This about muscle fibres is true

(a) for energy, they depend on anaerobic procedures

(b) better adapted for slow sustained activities

(c) myoglobin content is high

(d) possess mitochondria in huge numbers

Answer: (a)

3. Muscle fatigue is due to the accumulation of

(a) carbon dioxide

(b) lactic acid

(c) creatine phosphate

(d) none of the above

Answer: (b)

Answer: (b)

5. Duration of one muscle twitch is

(a) 0.1 seconds

(b) 1 second

(c) 5 seconds

Answer: (d)

8. Calcium, during muscle contraction binds with

(a) Tropomyosin

(b) TpC
