Answer - Femur is the longest bone in our body.

The structure of Femur can be classified into three parts namely upper part, its body and lower part. Its head comprises two-thirds of a sphere. It has a small groove which is connected through a round ligament. Its body is large, almost cylindrical, convex in front, and concave behind. The lowest part of the femur is thickest. It comprises two oblong eminences known as the condyles.

Femur is the longest bone in a human body. It is the hardest bone to heal. When this bone breaks, it takes a longer time to cure.
