D

Females

The larynx is also called as the voice box. It is located between the pharynx and the trachea. It has a framework of cartilage that protrudes in the front of the neck and sometimes is referred to as Adam's apple. The larynx is considerably larger in the male than in the female; hence, the Adam's apple is much more prominent in the male. At the upper end of the larynx are the vocal cords, which serve in the production of speech. They are set into vibration by the flow of air from the lungs. A difference in the size of the larynx is what accounts for the difference between the male and female voices; because a man's larynx is larger than a woman's, his voice is lower in pitch.
