Bones And Muscles Quiz: MCQ Trivia!

Are you aware of the relationship between bones and muscles? The bones in our bodies give us stability. The muscles keep bones in place and allow for the movement of the bones. Different bones are linked by distinct joints, which permits fluid motion. Cartilage prevents bone ends from rubbing one another. Muscles move the bone attached to the joint. This quiz will help you learn about the human body, and there are no bones about it.
