Human Anatomy and Physiology Important MCQs

MCQs is the best tool to check your knowledge about a subject in less time.

In this post, I have given you important MCQs with answers on Human Anatomy and Physiology subject.

These MCQs will help you check and gain a deeper knowledge about human anatomy and physiology. And also help you increase your rank in competitive exams like GPAT, NIPER, and DI as well as in your B Pharm and D Pharm exams.


In the MCQs of Human Anatomy and Physiology, I gave you MCQs on structures and functions of the human body and all systems of the Human Body. The human body is divided into ten main systems such as muscular, skeletal, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive. And all these systems include all the organs in the human body.
