: 20. The three parts of the subclavian artery are referenced to the pectoralis minor muscle. FALSE, anterior scalene m. AGREE.
: 21. The thyrocervical trunk and vertebral artery arise from the superior margin of the subclavian artery. TRUE AGREE.
: 22. The costocervical trunk arises from the posterior margin of the subclavian artery. TRUE AGREE.
: 23. The internal thoracic artery arises from the inferior margin of the subclavian artery. TRUE AGREE.
: 24. The vertebral artery enters the transverse process of the C7 along with the vertebral vein. FALSE C6 for both AGREE. But!!!!!!!!!!

: 26. The ansa subclavia innervates the infrahyoid muscles. TRUE FALSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
: 27. The internal carotid nerve enters the carotid canal to then ramify around the internal carotid artery and form the internal carotid plexus. TRUE AGREE.
: 26. The internal carotid nerve is a superior extension of the superior cervical sympathetic trunk ganglion. TRUE AGREE.
