Immediately after fertilization the zygote divides by mitosis to form a blastocyst.
____ has haploid chromosomes.
Secondary oocyte has haploid chromosomes as it is formed by the process of meiosis.
Urethral meatus is ____.
Urethral meatus is external opening of the urethra. The urethra originates from the urinary bladder and extends through the penis to its external opening called the Urethral meatus.
Ovulation occurs in the ____ phase.
Ovulation occurs in the luteal phase.
Parturition duct inn female is called
Vagina serves as birth canal during parturition.
The function of the epididymis is ____.
The function of the epididymis is storage of sperm during maturation.
____ is not an accessory gland in human males.

Egg released by Graafian follicle is surrounded by ____.
Egg released by Graffian follicle is surrounded by zona pellucida.

Polar bodies are formed during ____.
Polar bodies are formed during oogenesis.
Egg is liberated from ovary in
Egg is liberated from ovary (ovulation) at secondary oocyte stage when the meiosis II is arrested in secondary oocyte. It will be induced by the sperm.
Oogenesis is a process of formation development and maturation of haploid ova from diploid germinal cells.
The cavity present in the graafian follicle is
The cavity of graafian follicle is antrum or follicular cavity.
In the male sperm, the mitochondria are located in the ____.
In the male sperm, the mitochondria are located in the middle piece.
The organ which secretes FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) is ____.
The organ which secretes FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) is pituitary gland.
Fertilization is union of haploid sperm with haploid ovum to form diploid zygote.
