1. Which of these blood cells has a characteristic “telephone receiver” shaped nucleus?
2. Which of these blood cells has a multi-lobed nucleus?
3. Which of these diagnostic tests is performed to note the identity of the first 100 WBC’s encountered on a blood smear?

4. Where would a right-handed person place the drop of blood on a microslide when preparing a blood smear?
You would place the drop at the right end of the slide.
You would place the drop at the left end of the slide.
You would place the drop in the center of the slide.
You would place the drop at the far edge of the slide.
5. Why is there no “well” for type-O on the blood typing test plate?
There is no well for type-O because we do not test for type-O.
There is no well for type-O because if you lack both A and B, then you must be type-O.
There is no well for type-O because we do not need to test for type-O.
There is no well for type-O because we only assess Rh.

NOTE: You are responsible for the visual identification of the various blood cells and their structures. You also must be able to visually interpret a blood typing test. Practical applications such as these are an inherent part of each laboratory activity and exam.
