yeah, it's b. granted that if you had no bones you'd be a pretty immovable puddle, but the other three functions are active functions that bones accomplish themselves, and "assists" is a weaker verb. and even if you are paralyzed, you still need your bones to do the rest of those things.

It's B, muscles assist more in movement than the skeletal system.

Blood cells are manufactured in the bone marrow. Pretty important function of the skeletal system.
