Also know, what organ connects the pharynx to the bronchi?

The trachea, sometimes referred to as the windpipe connects the pharynx to the larynx. The larynx, which is sometimes referred to as the "Adam's apple and the "voice box", receives inspired air from the trachea and it then is the passage through which the air passes into the bronchi of the lung.

Subsequently, question is, what is the name of the air passage between the pharynx and the trachea in the respiratory system? Exam 3: Chapter 14: Respiratory System Review

A B
Trachea Connects the larynx to the lung; also called the windpipe
lower respiratory tract trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli
pharynx passageway for air and food
glottis space between the vocal cords, opens into trachea

Consequently, what connects the pharynx and trachea?

Larynx. The larynx is the organ that connects the lower part of the pharynx with the trachea.

What are bronchi?

Bronchi are the main passageway into the lungs. The bronchi become smaller the closer they get to the lung tissue and are then considered bronchioles. These passageways then evolve into tiny air sacs called alveoli, which is the site of oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange in the respiratory system.
