    What is number 3 (bone)

    The correct answer is the Sphenoid bone. The Sphenoid bone is a complex bone located at the base of the skull. It is shaped like a butterfly and forms part of the cranial floor. The bone is situated in the middle of the skull and connects with many other bones, including the frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital bones. It also contains several important structures, such as the sella turcica, which houses the pituitary gland. The Sphenoid bone is crucial for providing structural support to the skull and protecting vital organs within the cranial cavity.

    The correct answer is "Zygomatic arch." The zygomatic arch is a bony structure in the skull that extends from the cheekbone (zygomatic bone) to the temporal bone. It forms the lateral boundary of the eye socket and helps to support the muscles of mastication (chewing) and facial expression. The zygomatic arch also plays a role in protecting the underlying structures, such as the temporalis muscle and the nerves and blood vessels that pass through this area.
