Which of the following are part of the human digestive system?    ALL OF THE ABOVE           MOUTH                ESOPHAGUS        STOMACH           Food enters the mouth when you eat. You chew the food which breaks the food into smaller pieces, while this is going on, your saliva is already partially digesting your food into a swallow-able form. Then, people usually swallow, which causes the food to travel down the esophagus (The food is carried down the esophagus using a muscle movement called Peristalsis.) and into the stomach. In the stomach you have Hydrochloric acid and pepsin, this slowly turns the food you eat into a substance called Chyme. The small intestine is responsible for most Digestion, The secretions of the small intestine include amylase maltase, sucrose, lactase, etc. to digest carbohydrates and lipase to digest fats. The food then goes into the large intestine, this is where the food is drained of most of its water, and turned into Feces.        General Science Practice Questions

    This story reminded me of how I finally passed the ASVAB after failing it twice.

    What really helped me was to do lots of online practice, learn to eliminate wrong answers, and get comfortable with the time limits.

    Before I learned how to pass the ASVAB, I wasted a lot of time looking for free sample questions and study materials that didn't help me at all.

    The secret is to use the right materials and practice under the same pressure as in the real test.

    The website that helped me the most to pass the ASVAB is this one:
