    D) Cartilaginous synchondrosis

    Explanation:

    Cartilaginous synchondrosis is a joint in which the bones are joined to the hyaline cartilage or the hyaline cartilage joins the bones.

    The synchondrosis is of two types - the temporary and permanent synchondrosis in which the temporary synchondrosis represents the growth plate or epiphyseal plate of the hyaline cartilage which connects the shaft of the bones to the end of the bone.

    The thickness of the epiphyseal plate in the children does not change as the bone lengthens.

    Thus, D) Cartilaginous synchondrosis is the correct answer.
