A skeletal muscle attaches to what?

Question:a) bones of the skeleton
b) body organs
c) the heart
d) a ligament




Answers:
The answer is a.
a skeletal muscle attaches to bones by tendon (Latin. tendere: to stretch). so it does not attach to the bone directly.

the heart does not attach to any bones.

ligament attaches a bone to another bone.
In most cases, a skeletal muscle is attached to one end of a bone. It stretches all the way across a joint (the place where two bones meet) and then attaches again to another bone.

Skeletal muscles are held to the bones with the help of tendons (say: ten-dunz). Tendons are cords made of tough tissue, and they work as special connector pieces between bone and muscle. The tendons are attached so well that when you contract one of your muscles, the tendon and bone move along with it.
