      Mucosal

    Correct Answer
    C. Serous
    Explanation
    A serous membrane is a type of membrane that lines body cavities and covers the external surfaces of organs. It is composed of two layers, the parietal layer which lines the cavity, and the visceral layer which covers the organs. The serous membrane produces a lubricating fluid called serous fluid, which helps reduce friction between the organs and the cavity walls. This membrane is found in various body cavities such as the peritoneum, pleura, and pericardium. Therefore, the correct answer is serous.

It is commonly used to refer to specific openings in the body, such as the external auditory meatus (ear canal) or the urethral meatus (opening of the urethra). Meatus is the correct answer because it accurately describes an opening or tunnel in the body, whereas foramen refers specifically to a hole in a bone, process refers to a bony projection, and condyle refers to a rounded prominence on a bone.

In contrast, flexion, inversion, and rotation involve bending, turning, or moving body parts in different directions.
