The diagram provided shows a basic
outline of the appendicular skeleton. Which number indicates the
The phalanges are commonly referred
to as the digits, or the fingers and toes. Let’s quickly identify all the
indicated bones in this diagram to answer this question with confidence.
One points to the finger bones, or
phalanges. Two points to the radius, one of
the two bones in the forearm. We can tell this is the radius
because it is broader at the wrist than the other bone. Three points to the humerus. Four points to the scapula, more
commonly known as the shoulder blade. Five points to the ilium portion of
the pelvis. Six points to the femur, seven to
the tibia, and eight to the fibula.
The question asks us the number
that indicates the phalanges. So the correct answer to this
question is one. The phalanges are indicated in the
diagram by the number one.
