c) calcaneofibular ligament

I think you mean to say INversion, not Eversion.

Default c) calcaneofibular ligament

Ya, i think it would be calcaneofibular ligament due to inversion of foot.

If inversion is the most common injury then ATF is the most common ligament injured about 90% of the cases. I will go with C. which is also on lateral side.

yes, every one answered correct.....the correct answer is C) CALCANEO FIBULAR LIGAMENT

ankle sprains are most commonly caused by 1)inversion injuries
In ankle joint,lateral ligaments are most commonly injured than medial ligaments.....
calcaneofibular is 2nd most commonly injured ligament in ankle injuries.....most common one is talofibular ligament....

both talofibular and calcaneofibular are lateral ligaments....a) tibiocalcaneal ligament
b) talonavicular ligament,d)tibiotalar joint -- all are medial ligaments which are rarely injured in ankle sprain injuries......

2)dorsiflexion and3) plantar flexion injuries
to ankle are very rare

4)forced eversion injuries(pott's fracture)
lead to medial malleolar fracture associated with talus and fibula fracture
5)avulsion injury-----
lead to medial malleolar fracture

i think this could be easy question for you, but i feel it rather difficult coz i'm very poor at ankle and wrist joint anatomy.......
