    B. Cartilage
    Explanation
    Cartilage is located between the parts of your vertebrae and looks like sliding discs. It is a flexible connective tissue that provides support and cushioning to the bones, allowing smooth movement and reducing friction. Cartilage also helps in absorbing shock and distributing pressure evenly across the spine. It is a crucial component of the spinal column, ensuring its flexibility and protecting the vertebrae from wear and tear.

    Your skull is made up many different bones but fuse together as you grow up.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true. The human skull is composed of several bones that fuse together as a person grows and develops. In infants, the skull is made up of separate bones with gaps called fontanelles. As the child ages, these fontanelles close and the bones gradually fuse together, forming a solid structure. This fusion is important for the protection and support of the brain and facial structures. Therefore, the given answer "True" is correct.

    Knee
    Explanation
    The knee is an example of a hinge joint located in the lower leg. It allows for flexion and extension movements, similar to a hinge on a door. The knee joint is formed by the femur (thigh bone), tibia (shin bone), and patella (kneecap), and is supported by ligaments and muscles. This joint enables us to perform activities such as walking, running, and jumping.

      They play an important job in the digestive system.

    Correct Answer
    C. They play an important job in the digestive system.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "They play an important job in the digestive system." This statement is false because bones do not play a direct role in the digestive system. Bones are responsible for providing structural support, protecting organs, producing red and white blood cells, and storing minerals like calcium. However, they do not have any direct involvement in the digestive process.
