The sternum, also known as the breastbone, is a flat bone located in the middle of the chest.

Together, the sternum and costal cartilages provide support and protection to the organs within the thoracic cavity.

    True ribs, also known as Costae verae, are the ribs that have a direct connection with the sternum anteriorly via their costal cartilages. This includes the 1st rib, 2nd rib, 3rd rib, 4th rib, 5th rib, 6th rib, and 7th rib. These ribs are attached to the sternum by their own individual cartilages, forming a bony and cartilaginous structure that helps protect the organs in the thoracic cavity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The head of the rib, also known as the costa capitis, is located at the posterior end of the rib, specifically the vertebral end. This means that the head of the rib is closer to the spine rather than the front of the body. Therefore, the statement "Head of the rib (Costa capitis) is @ the posterior end (vertebral end) of the rib" is true.
