Muscle type question.

About the muscle types:

Remember that cardiac can apply to only on area-the heart!  That 
eliminates that choice.  The next step is to determine whether it is a 
muscle or an organ- this answers the next question: smooth or 
striated(skeletal)?  Muscles like the gastrocnemius and diaphragm are 
skeletal muscles.  Organs are made up of smooth muscle.  The Bladder 
qualifies as this.  As far as lips, my best guess is skeletal, as smooth 
doesn't make much sense and cardiac is certainly wrong!

Hope I helped,
