The axes are generally given letter representations to differentiate the direction in which they are pointing. Any position can be described by identifying the distance of the object from each of the axes. In two-dimensional or planar movement, there are two axes, a horizontal axis and a vertical axis. In a three-dimensional movement, there are three axes, two horizontal axes that form a plane and a vertical axis. It is important to identify the frame of reference used in the description of motion.

B) Short bones offer support and shock absorption. (C) Flat bones protect and offer large muscular attachment sites. (D) Irregular bones have specialized functions.
