Correct Answer - Option 1 : Tendons

The Correct Answer is Tendons.

  • A tendon or sinew is a tough band of fibrous connective tissue that connects muscle to bone and is capable of withstanding tension.
  • Ligaments are bands of tough elastic tissue around your joints. They connect bone to bone, give your joints support, and limit their movement. Humans have ligaments around their ankles, knees, shoulders, elbows and other joints.
  • Cartilage is a resilient and smooth elastic tissue, rubber-like padding that covers and protects the ends of long bones at the joints and nerves, and is a structural component of the rib cage, the ear, the nose, the bronchial tubes, the inter vertebral discs, and many other body components.
  • Stapedius is the smallest skeletal muscle in the human body. At just over one millimetre in length, its purpose is to stabilize the smallest bone in the body, the stapes.

  • A bone is a hard tissue that constitutes part of the vertebral skeleton in animals. Bones protect various organs of the body, produce red and white blood cells, store minerals, provide structure and support for the body and enable mobility.
  • In the human body at birth, there are approximately 270 bones present; many of this fuse together during development, leaving a total of 206 separate bones in the adult, not counting numerous small sesamoid bones.
  • Muscle is a soft tissue found in most animals. Muscle cells contain protein filaments of actin and myosin that slide past one another, producing a contraction that changes both the length and the shape of the cell.
