Mnemonic Make Some Important SHtuff(1 2 3 4+6)
For 1st pharyngeal arch..everything starts with M : maxilla mandible mandibular nerve, maatication muscles, myelohyoid, malleus
For 2nd arch everything starts with S
Seventh nerve n everyone knows that this n supplies muscles of facial expression , stylohyoid stapedius, stapes styloidbprocess ( n for hyoid bone ,letter 2 has 2 parts the first resembles breast > n lower - dash is lesser horn so upper body n lesser horn )
For arch 3

Everything starts with I.... Ix nerve, int. carotids, n now, whats 9th n?. Glossopharyngeal so the muscle shud hav pharyngeal component that is stylopharyngeus... N when u rotate 3 it becomes w, shaped like lower body n greater horn of hyoid
Arch 4 n 6 comes together so 6+4=10th nerve but "4th take the best n gives rest to 6th" so, 4th takes all imp stuff.... Main artery that is arch of aorta n 6th is stuck with pulmonary a n ductus art... Then 4th takes imp thyroid n all other cartilages to 6th... Then it takes imp cricothyroi n rest to 6th... N it takes best sup laryngeal n and gives 6th the recurrent one
