Solution

The correct option is B Ball and socket - Neck
Our ankle and elbow allow back and forth movement upto 180 degrees. Hinge joints are present in these parts.
Fixed joints don't permit any movement and are extremely strong. They are present between various bones of the skull.
In a ball and socket joint, the movement is possible nearly in all the directions allowing greatest range of motion. These joints are present in hip and shoulder.
Our head moves sideways, up and down but we cannot rotate our head completely like how ball and socket joint would allow. Instead, it allows rotation about an axis alone.
