    Relating to the wall of any cavity.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "parietális, parietále". This refers to something that is related to the wall of any cavity. The term "parietális" is derived from the Latin word "paries" which means wall, and it is used to describe anything that is associated with the walls of a cavity or structure. "Parietále" is the neuter form of the word, used to describe something that is specifically related to the wall.
