The correct answer is option C. Deep fascial layers are connected to bone

Basically, superficial fascia, a layer of dense connective tissue, is a general coating of the body specially made up of loose aerolar tissue and it contains diverse amount of fat. Deep fascial layers are also part of dense conective tissue and its main function is to surround individual muscles.

Deep fascial layers are connected to bone-in the superficial fascia are flat sheets of muscle called the panniculus carnosus, which help certain animals (e.g., domestic quadrupeds) to move their skin. an essential feature of the panniculus carnosus is that one end of the muscle fiber is attached to the skin while the other is attached to the deep fascia or bone. infections that are within this superficial layer, such as erysipelas, are referred to as superficial infections and are usually managed by antibiotics and incision and drainage.the deep fascia, referred to by anatomists as the investing layer of deep fascia (in the neck it is called the investing layer of deep cervical fascia), on the other hand comprises fibrous tissue, which is largely devoid of fat and which varies in thickness. while the deep fascia is attached to periosteum and bone in a few places, in general, muscles and organs are free to glide beneath the deep fascia as they contract and relax.
