Q

Which of the following is not part of the axial skeleton?

A.the rib cage

B.the skull

C.the backbone

D.the pelvis

A

Answer: D.the pelvis

Bones of the axial skeleton in humans include the skull, the middle ear, the ossicles, the hyoid bone, the rib cage, the sternum, and the vertebral column. The full human skeleton is a combination of the axial skeleton and the appendicular skeleton. With this, the pelvis is not a part of the axial skeleton. Rather, it is a part of the appendicular skeleton
