Hint: The strongest muscles in the human body are located in the mandible region of the face. The mandible is the face's largest and strongest bone.

Complete answer:
-The massager is the toughest muscle based on its weight. It can close the teeth with a force as high as 55 pounds (25 kilogrammes) on the incisors or 200 pounds (90.7 kilogrammes) on the molars, with all the muscles of the jaw working together.
-For walking, running and dancing, the soleus is very important. It is considered a very strong muscle along with calf muscles because it pulls against the force of gravity to hold the body upright. The muscle that with the greatest force can pull is the soleus. It is located below the (calf muscle) gastrocnemius.
-In the human body, the gluteus maximus is the largest muscle. It is broad and heavy since it has the duty of holding the body's trunk in an upright posture. It is the chief muscle of antigravity that helps to walk upstairs.
-The toughest muscle that works is the heart. For every heartbeat, it pumps out 2 ounces (71 grammes) of blood. The heart pumps at least 2,500 gallons of blood (9,450 litres) daily. The heart has the capacity to beat a human more than 3 billion times.
So, the correct answer is ‘Jaw’.

Note: -The smallest skeletal muscle in the human body is the stapedius.
- Its function is to stabilise the smallest bone in the body at just over one millimetre in length, the stapes.
-The uterus is the strongest muscle in the body by weight.
