    Explanation
    The correct answer is "none of the above" because the question is asking about what is present inside the bone, and none of the options provided (molecules, red blood cells, white blood cells, bone cells) accurately represent the components that are found inside the bone.

    Correct Answer
    C. Calcium
    Explanation
    Teeth are made up of calcium. Calcium is an essential mineral that plays a vital role in the development and maintenance of strong and healthy teeth. It helps in the formation of tooth enamel, which is the outermost layer of the teeth and provides protection against decay and damage. Calcium also helps in the development of the underlying dentin, which gives the teeth their structure and strength. Without sufficient calcium, teeth may become weak and prone to cavities and other dental problems.
