Solution

The correct option is C fibrocartilage
Symphysis refers to the region of fusion between two bones. It consists of fibrocartilage. Cartilage is classified as:
  1. Hyaline cartilage: Consists of chondrocytes which are placed in a fluid filled cavity called lacunae. It is found in the trachea.
  2. Elastic cartilage: In addition to collagen fibres, it also has elastin fibres. It is found in the ear lobes.
  3. Fibrocartilage: It is heavily deposited with collagen. It is found in the symphysis present at the junction at which the two halves of the pelvic girdle join.
