Where's That Bone?



It sounds like something the dog says when he's trying to recall where he buried it! No, it's today's Lunchtime Quiz at mental_floss. How much do you remember about the bones of the human body? In this quiz, you'll be given the names of nine bones, and you match them to the part of the body they are from. I scored 100%! Link

Ratz, the sternum isn't actually a fusion of three bones, more like there are 3 sections of the sternum-manubrium, body(corpus), and xyphoid process.

BUT,

The Cocyx is definitely NOT part of the hip. It would have been just as easy to put back as one of the choices, I don't know why they put hip. Oh well.

@meg: By that measure you could equally say that a baculum was a hip bone. On a point of pedantry, I'm also unconvinced about the sternum given that it's the fusion of three bones.
