    The correct option is d) distal humerus fracture


    The humerus is one of the three bones which join to make up the elbow joint. A break in the lower end part of the upper elbow results in distal humerus fracture. Such types of events are caused due to high energy collisions such as during an accident. The distal humerus fracture can be treated through a surgery. During the surgery, the normal motion of the humerus is tried to be restored.
