Suture joint is found in the

A. hip

B. ankle

C. skull

D. elbow




Sutures are joints made up of fibers of connective tissues that join skull bones together. Sutures are found only in the skull.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. The hip joint is a type of ball and socket joint and not suture. so, A is incorrect.
  2. The ankle is held together by hinge joint. B is also incorrect.
  3. The suture joint is a kind of joint found only in the skull. C is very correct.
  4. D is incorrect; the elbow is held together by what is called synovial joint.


You may please note that:

  • Suture joints are found nowhere else in the body except in the skull.
  • Sutures are responsible for elasticity of the skull.
