_______ joints are the most common joints in the body.

  1. a. Fibrous
  2. b. Cartilaginous
  3. c. Smooth
  4. d. Synovial

Summary Introduction

Introduction: A structure that helps to attach the bones in our body for the movement is collectively called as joints. The joints are mainly classified into three types: cartilaginous joints, synovial joints, and fibrous joints.

Explanation

Reason for the correct answer:

The most common joints present in our body which are freely moveable are the synovial joints. Ligaments are the dense connective tissues present in the synovial fluid that function to join the adjacent bones.

The joints, like hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, and wrists together, constitute the synovial joints. The rotational movements at the shoulders and hips are done with the help of the ball-and-socket joints. Due to the joints present in the wrist and ankle, the bones slide along one another. Also, the joints in knees and elbows allow the bones for the back and forth movement.

Option d. is given as “synovial”.

Synovial joints are the freely moveable joints that help in the most of the movements of our body parts.

Hence, the correct answer is option d.

Reasons for the incorrect answers:
