A quiz doesn't work if you give people the answers with the questions, unless it's multiple-choice.
And a good quiz usually has more than two questions.

It also doesn't help that the OP answered the second question incorrectly...

This is a fetus, a miscarrige actually. Saw this in my college anatomy class for paramedic school. My background on the homescreen...this is an amazing picture this is why you must be sooo careful with babys, you have those fontanelles that need to seal /fuse together overtime. The bones ossify (get harder) and are no longer cartilage on the shaft and espistasis. Over time these bones grow and stretch ouch growing pains. And teeth are not considered bones...so still a baby has about 305 bones vs exactly 206 bones.

Yeah, I meant 5 parts if you don't count the occipital. :-P

You're right, it is actually 4 parts that fuse if you do not count the occipital.

No, every bone in a baby doesn't have a pair it fuses with. The skull is made up of 3 parts IIRC, but many bones don't fuse

Tee hee, no, no, it's not like that. They just fuse together as a child grows, adults have the same overall "bone structure" so to speak. So what counts as 2 or 3 or so many separate bones in a child only counts as 1 in an adult.
