Hint: It is the larger, stouter, and anterior of the two bones in the vertebrates. It is collectively called a shank bone and a shinbone. This bone connects with other bones and forms a type of fibrous syndesmosis and once formed they display very little movements. It helps in providing strength.

Complete answer: • The tibia, otherwise called the shinbone or shank bone, is the bigger, more grounded, and foremost (frontal) of the two bones in the leg beneath the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula, behind and to the outside of the tibia), and it interfaces the knee with the lower leg bones.
• The tibia is found on the average side of the leg close to the fibula and closer to the middle plane of the focus line.
• The tibia is associated with the fibula by the interosseous film of the leg, shaping a kind of sinewy joint called a syndesmosis with almost no development.
• It is the second biggest bone in the human body close to the femur. The leg bones are the most grounded long bones as they uphold the remainder of the body.
• This bone provides the function of providing strength.
• The structure is usually similar in all the organisms possessing shank.
• In the majority of the organism, it is present in the posterior part and helps them in walking or running.
Hence, the correct option is (B) Tibia-fibula.

Note: The shank bone is present in vertebrates and the structure resembles almost all the organisms. It provides the function of providing support and strength in the majority of the organisms. It is further joined with other bones and forms a structure that shows little movement.
