Which of the following actions increases the volume of your lungs, allowing more gases to be exchanged?  
 A. The diaphragm flattens and moves downward.  
B. The rib cage becomes smaller.  
C. Air pressure increases inside the lungs.  
D. Gases move from areas of lower pressure.  
 
2. The blood in veins is  
 A. leaving the lungs.  
B. moving in single file.  
C. carrying oxygen.  
D. traveling to the heart.  
 
3. Blood is carried to and from the cells of the body by the  
 A. arteries.  
B. capillaries.  
C. muscles.

4. Oxygen inhaled into the alveoli diffuses into the  
 A. capillaries.  
B. arteries.  
C. adjacent alveoli.  
D. bronchioles.  
 
5. The nervous system regulates breathing and the exchange of gases in the lungs by  
 A. overriding signals during exercise.  
B. monitoring dissolved gases in the blood.  
C. maintaining a constant rate of inhalation.  
D. constricting the blood vessels in the lungs.  
 
6. How does asthma affect the exchange of gases in the lungs?  
 A. It causes the bronchioles to constrict reducing the amount of gases allowed into or out of the lungs.  
B. It destroys alveoli over time reducing the amount of surface area for gases to be exchanged.  
C. It makes the lungs produce mucus blocking the surface area for gases to be exchanged.  
D. It relaxes the diaphragm too much reducing the amount of gases allowed into or out of the lungs.  
 
7. Why does CO2 diffuse from the blood into the alveoli?  
 A. CO2 concentration is higher in the blood than in the alveoli.  
B. The brain signals the alveoli to absorb CO2 .

 A. activity of skeletal muscles.  
B. use of two-way valves.  
C. contraction of elastic fibers.

15. Materials can diffuse into and out of blood in the capillaries because the capillary  
 A. beds are near the heart.  
B. fibers are very elastic.  
C. walls are very thin.
