Question

Sutures are
  1. Immovable joints in the upper limb
  2.  Surgical incisions in the head
  3. Cracks in the skull bone
  4. Fibrous joints that are only found in the skull


Solution

The correct option is D Fibrous joints that are only found in the skull
A suture is a type of fibrous joint that is only found in the skull. The bones are bound together by Sharpey's fibres. A tiny amount of movement is permitted at sutures, which contributes to the compliance and elasticity of the skull. These joints are synarthroses.
