Solution

The correct option is A malleus, incus and stapes
The middle ear contains three ossicles called malleus, incus and stapes which are attached to one another forming a chain.
The malleus is hammer shaped and the largest ossicle. It is attached to the tympanic membrane. Incus is anvil shaped and is connected to the stapes which is further attached to the oval membrane covering the oval window of the cochlea.
