do the false ribs join the 7th rib pair through the hyaline cartilage ?


Please find below the solution to the asked query

False (vertebrochondral) Ribs: 8th, 9th and 10th pairs; do not connect to the sternum directly, but connect indirectly to the seventh rib through the seventh coastal cartilage. The coastal cartilage is a set of hyaline cartilage.

Hope this information will clear your doubts about the false ribs.
