Which of the following statements best describes homeostasis?

A. Keeping the body in a fixed and in altered state

B. Dynamic equilibrium

C. Maintaining a near constant internal environment

D. Altering the external environment to accommodate its body's need

A

Answer: C

Homeostasis is the process by which the body seeks to maintain a near-constant internal temperature while considering the external temperature of the body. This negates option D.

This means the body’s temperature may fluctuate, so A is wrong.

Dynamic equilibrium is inaccurate because two extreme temperatures cannot exist simultaneously within and outside the human body.
