Where are tendons found in the appendicular skeleton? (A) Attaching bone to bone. (B) Attaching muscle to bone. (C) Attaching muscle to muscle. Or (D) between the vertebrae of the vertebral column.

The appendicular skeleton consists of the bones of the appendages, that is, the arms and legs, and the bones that connect them to the trunk of the body, or the axial skeleton. The bones of the appendicular skeleton tend to be more moveable than those of the axial skeleton. In fact, many of the appendicular joints are synovial joints.

Synovial joints are highly moveable joints that are cushioned and lubricated by synovial fluid and articular cartilage. These joints are held together by tendons and ligaments, which are both fibrous connective tissues. Ligaments connect bones in joints to other bones. Tendons connect muscles to the bones.

So, the correct answer to this question is (B). Tendons are found in the appendicular skeleton attaching muscle to bone.
