Answer:

The entire skeletal system can be divided into two parts, axial and appendicular.

Explanation:

There are, in total, #300# bones in a newborn, but some of them fuse together and finally, there are, in total, #206# bones left in an adult.

  • The axial axis

There are #80# bones in the axial part of the skeletal system. The axial axis consists of

  1. cranial bones
  2. facial bones
  3. ear ossicles
  4. hyoid bone
  5. vertebrae
  6. ribcage
  7. sternum
  • The appendicular axis

The remaining #126# bones belong to this category. The appendicular axis includes

  1. sixty bones of the upper limbs
  2. next sixty bones of the lower limbs
  3. pelvic and pectoral girdle

This is the key distribution of all the bones in the body.
