Solution

The correct option is A Fibro-cartilage that lies between adjacent vertebrae in the vertebral column
An intervertebral disc is a fibrocartilage present between the vertebrae. It acts as a shock absorber between each of the vertebrae in the spinal column by keeping the vertebrae separated when there is an impact from an activity. They also serve to protect the nerves that run down the middle of the spine and intervertebral discs.
