Question

The part of the internal ear responsible for hearing is

(a) cochlea  (b) semicircular canal (c) utriculus (d) sacculus


Solution

(a) Cochlea is the part of the internal ear responsible for hearing. It is connected with saccule and is a spirally coiled structure that resembles a snail shell in appearance.

The semicircular canal is membranous canal suspended in the perilymph of the bony canals and are the structures of equilibrium (balancing). Whereas utriculus and sacculus are the parts of the balancing apparatus located within the vestibule of the bony labyrinth.

These have small stones and a viscous fluid to stimulate hair cells to detect motion and orientation.
