Solution

Ribs join the chest bone and backbone together to form a box-like structure called ribcage. Some important organs are located inside the rib cage. Ribcage functions in protection, support and respiration. It encloses and protects the heart and lungs. It provides a strong framework onto which the muscles of the shoulder girdle, chest, upper abdomen and back can attach.
