Human reproduction is a sexual process involving two parents. Offspring result from the fusion of gametes from each parent. Human reproduction is an example of sexual reproduction.
Males and females have different reproductive systems
- It consists of several components, including the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate gland, and penis.
- The testes produce sperms, which have a distinct structure comprising a head, middle piece, and a tail.
- The head of the sperm contains genetic material, while the middle piece contains mitochondria to provide energy for movement, and the tail helps in propelling the sperm.
- The ovary, on the other hand, is a component of the female reproductive system and is involved in the production of female gametes, called ova or eggs.
- Therefore, the correct answer is Option D: Ovary, as it is not a component of the male reproductive system.
Oval organs responsible for sperm production and testosterone.
Sac-like organ housing the testes, maintaining the required temperature.
Tube where sperms mature and pass to the urethra.
Seminal vesicles, prostate gland, and Cowper's gland; their secretions form semen.
Cylindrical tube serving as a reproductive and excretory organ, delivering sperms during intercourse.
- They are housed in the scrotum, a sac-like organ that maintains the required temperature for sperm production.
- While the testicles do not produce estrogen or store eggs, they play a crucial role in the male reproductive system.
- Therefore, the correct answer is Option B, as the function of the testicles is to maintain the required temperature for sperm production.
