Correct Answer Correct answer

Correct answer is D) Fibularis longus muscle. The man in the picture is doing eversion of the right foot, movement which is mediated by fibularis (peroneus) longus muscle and fibularis (peroneus) brevis muscle.

Common peroneal nerve damage presents with equinovarus (plantar flexed and inverted) due to paralysis of the muscles mentioned before.
