Solution

The correct option is C

Ball and socket joints


In ball and socket joints, the rounded end of one bone fits into the cavity of the other bone. This allows movement in all directions, such as the hip joint.

The pivotal joint allows us to bend our head forward and backwards and turn our head right or left.

Hinge joints, such as the elbow and knee, limit movement in only one direction.

Fixed joints do not move and permit stability to certain areas of the body. Examples of fixed joints include the joints between the bones in the skull.
