Answer) primary organ of the endocrine system and their
* Hypothalamus - It is a small region of a brain. It controls body temperature, hunger, important aspects of parenting and attachment behaviors, thirst, fatigue, sleep, and circadian rhythms.
* Pituitary - It secretes hormones into our bloodstream. It controls growth, blood pressure, breathing rate, etc.

Answer) Primary organs and functions of the nerve system
There are 2 types of the nervous system
1) CNS (central nervous system) - Made up of the brain and spinal cord.
* Brain - It controls our thoughts, memory and speech, movement of the arms and legs, voluntary and involuntary actions, and the function of many organs (hindbrain, midbrain, and forebrain) within our body.
* Spinal cord - It relay messages from the brain to different parts of the body, to perform an action.
2) The peripheral nervous system - made up of nerves that branch off from the spinal cord and extend to all parts of the body.- It connects the central nervous system to the organs, limbs, and skin to allow for complex movements and behaviors.
Answer) primary organs of the cardiovascular system
* Heart - also called pump of our body. All the blood is pumped by the heart to all organs to function properly. contains both deoxygenated blood oxygenated blood. oxygenated blood is carried to all parts of the body while deoxygenated blood is pumped to the lungs.
* Lungs - When we breathe and take oxygen in lungs, It makes deoxygenated blood oxygenated. It also helps the body to get rid of CO2 gas when we breathe out.
* Arteries and Veins - these both are vessels that carry blood. Arteries deliver oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body
Veins carry deoxygenated blood from the tissues back to the heart so that it can be pumped to the lungs which makes it oxygenated.
Answer) primary organs and functions of the digestive
* Salivary glands - It secretes salivary amylase which breaks down carbohydrates in the food into simpler substances.
* Oesophagus - long pipe-like structure which carries food from mouth to stomach.
* Stomach - secrete hydrochloric acid and mucus. acid kills the bacteria in food and much prevents the wall of the stomach from any damage by HCl.
* Liver - releases bile juice, which helps in the emulsification of fats. * Pancreas - releases pancreatic juices and makes food basic in nature which is coming from the stomach.
* Small intestine - It pepsin, trypsin, and lipase which helps in the break down of protein, fats, and lipids. nutrient absorption takes place in the small intestine. Water is also absorbed here.
