Why is the human skull made up of smaller bones rather than just one hollow spherical bones?

Expert Answer:

The human skull is the most delicate part of the human body since it protects the underlying brain inside it. If it were entirely porous and spongy and made of hollow spherical bones, it would have no strength and would be weak and fragile. If the entire skull was, dense, and solid, the construction of the organs lying beneath would not be safe and would easily get injured. Hence, the human skull is made of smaller bones rather than just one hollow spherical bones.
