Paired cartilages of larynx

 # Which of the following is a paired cartilage of larynx?
A. Thyroid
B. Cricoid
C. Epiglottis

The correct answer is D. Arytenoid.

The laryngeal skeleton is made of nine cartilages: the thyroid cartilage, cricoid cartilage, epiglottis, arytenoid cartilages, corniculate cartilages, and cuneiform cartilages. The first three are unpaired cartilages, and the latter three are paired cartilages.

Paired = Arytenoid, Corniculate, Cuneiform
Unpaired= Thyroid, Cricoid, Epiglottis
