AS a student of public health, I found your questions quite helpfull and even more teaching.
Thank you! The questions are very very popular and I am glad so many people are enjoying them.
I am in the transitional process of moving to a new field 15+ years after training/degree. I really appreciate having this kind of information available to refresh me. Never had to have Certification in time of education, now everyone wants it. This brief peak is confirmation that I still have the knowledge obtained after so many years. One suggestion, please correct the answer key (answers) or the multiple choice options (answers) to alphabet.
Brian please tell me if this information complies with U.S. certification standards?

The Left Upper Quadrant, or LUQ, contains similar organs to the RUQ. In the LUQ, you’ll find the left portion of the liver, the majority of the stomach, the pancreas, the left kidney, the spleen, portions of the colon, and again, parts of the small intestine.
I believe he was referring to the wording of the choice, as all of the other choices are properly named, such as “Left Lower,” “Left Upper,” and “Right Upper.” Whereas you have the choice “Right Left” instead of “Right Lower”
