The testes are situated outside the abdominal cavity within a pouch called scrotum. This is necessary as:

1. The scrotum can contain lengthy ducts for the transfer of sperms

2. Scrotum helps in maintaining the low temperature of the testes necessary for spermatogenesis

3. Scrotum reduces the pressure around testes necessary for spermatogenesis

4. Scrotum can store huge amounts of sperms

4. Both 1 and 3

Leydig cells:

(1) Are present in seminiferous tubules and secrete androgens

(2) Are present in seminiferous tubules and help in maturation of sperms

(3) Are present in interstitial space and secrete androgens

(4) Are present in interstitial space and help in maturation of sperms

Seminal plasma is rich in:

2. Glucose, sodium and certain enzymes

3. Fructose, calcium and certain enzymes

4. Fructose, sodium and certain enzymes

Ovaries are the primary sex organs in human females because they:

I. Produce the female gamete

II. Produce the hormone that regulates the development of secondary sexual characters

1. Both I and lI
