Solution

The correct option is D (i) Ilium (ii) Pubis (iv) Acetabulum (v) Fibrous
The hip boneor coxal bone is a large irregular bone, constricted in the center, and expanded above and below. It is composed of three parts: the ilium, ischium, and the pubis.
The acetabulum(cotyloid cavity) is a concave surface of the pelvis. The head of the femur meets with the pelvis at the acetabulum, forming the hip joint.
The joint of the pubic symphysis is made up of fibrocartilage.
So, the correct answer is D.
