Differentiate between ligament,cartilage, and tendon.

Dear Student

Ligaments are connective tissue that connects two bones. They are very elastic & flexible. It contain very less matrix & composed of yellow fibrous connective tissue.

Cartilage is a hard but flexible connective tissue. It is highly adapted to resist any strains that are placed upon it. It occurs between the surface of the bones where they meet. Cartilage provides cushion to the bones at joints and prevents its wear and tear.

Tendons are the tissues that connects muscles to bones and helps in the flexible movement of the body parts. They are strong and less flexible.
