The correct answer to this question is the larynx. It is an organ at the top of the neck. It is called the voicebox because it is what produces sound. The larynx is home to the vocal folds and it controls the volume and pitch of the sound.

The larynx also has other functions, which include helping with breathing and protects against food aspiration occurring in the trachea. It is triangular in shape. There are two folds of the larynx. The top fold is vestibular folds. They are also known as false vocal folds, for they have no impact on sound. The bottom fold is called the vocal fold.

The answer to this is larynx. There are a lot of people who may become confused with the different parts of the respiratory system. The voice box has gotten its name because it houses all of the vocal cords. This is a part that is located above the trachea.

This is also near the food pipe but it makes sure that the food that people eat will not go to the other pathway. The larynx is also in charge of changing the pitch and volume of a person’s voice. There are some who are able to change their voices easily while there are also some who will not be able to do so well.
