  • The skull  is composed of two sets of bones. They are cranial (8) and facial (14), that totals to 22 bones. The cranial bones include 1 ethmoid bone, 1 frontal bone, 1 occipital bone, 2 parietal bones, 1 sphenoid bone, 2 temporal bones.
  • Hence zygomatic bone is not a cranial bone. These bones also help form the lateral walls and floors of the orbits (eye).
  • So, the correct answer is 'Zygomatic bone'.
