Solution

  • Bending of our body parts such as the elbow, knee is possible due to the presence of different types of joints between the bones.
  • Elbow and knee are not made up of a single bone but two or more bones are joined to each other by a hinge joint.
  • This joint along with the muscles help us to bend the elbow and knee.
