    Explanation
    The term "ramus" refers to an armlike bar of bone. This anatomical structure can be found in various parts of the body, such as the mandible (lower jaw), where it forms the vertical portion of the bone. The ramus serves as a point of attachment for muscles and ligaments, providing stability and support to the surrounding structures. It is important in facilitating movements and providing structural integrity to the affected area.

    C. Meatus
    Explanation
    A meatus is a canal-like passageway in the body. It is a narrow opening or channel that allows the passage of fluids or substances. In the context of the given options, a meatus is the only term that fits the description of a canal-like passageway. Fissure refers to a narrow opening or crack, fossa is a depression or hollow, head and spine are not related to canal-like passageways. Therefore, the correct answer is meatus.

    In anatomy, a process refers to a bony projection or prominence. It is a general term used to describe any outgrowth or projection from a bone. Processes can vary in size and shape and serve different functions depending on their location in the body. They can provide attachment points for muscles, serve as joints, or contribute to the overall structure and stability of the skeletal system. Therefore, "process" is the most suitable term to describe prominence or projection in this context.
