2. The most typical feature in the development of the head and neck is formed by the pharyngeal (brachial) arches. These arches appear during the fourth to fifth weeks of development and contribute to the characteristic external appearance of the embryo. One mesodermal derivative of a pharyngeal arch is a muscle that through its action draws the tympanic membrane medially, resulting in increased tension on the tympanic membrane.
Which of the following nerves provides the innervation to this mesodermal derivative?

A.Facial nerve
B.Glossopharyngeal nerve
C.Stylopharyngeal nerve
D.Trigeminal nerve
E.Vagus nerve

For the first question answer is c , it is called boxer fracture , it usually affects the 4th or 5th metacarpal neck , it results from striking an hard object with a fist.

for the second question I am not sure but it might be tensor tympani muscle derivative of 1st branchial arch , which is innervated by trigeminal Nerve ????

Ok guys next time I will not post such a cheap question. You all got it.
It doesn't represent normal distribution curve.
Keep it up. You are all doing very well.
