b.connective, eipithelial, skin, and blood.
c.epithelial, connective, muscle, and nerve.
d.glands, bone, lungs, and kidney.
e.bone, skin, blood, and muscle.
2.Epithelial tissue is characterized by
a.tightly packed cells.
b.absence of any basement membrane.
c.extensive extracellular matrix.
d.a rich blood supply.
e.both tightly packed cells and a rich blood supply.

b.into the bloodstream.
c.into a gland duct.
d.into the nervous tissue.
e.into the lumen of a tube.
8.A general characteristic of connective tissue is that it
a.consists of cells with much extracellular material (matrix) between them. b.has no blood supply to the tissue.
c.covers the outside of organs.
d.is commonly found lining body cavities.
