    I think it could involve disfunctional ligaments.

    Reminder: reposting of questions or answer choices from the MCAT is prohibited as the MCAT is a copyrighted exam and the administrators do check this forum. Discussion of general questions is allowed, but please do not discuss specific questions or list out answer choices. As such, I have censored a couple responses on here. It's nothing personal, and I realize I may be erring on the side of caution.

    Thanks for understanding.
