The type of cartilage associated with bone function and development is what?

I know that the elastic cartilage contains elastin which allows for elasticity and maintains shape of certain structures.

Fibro is strong and rigid (strongest of 3)

Hyaline cartilage provides flexibility and support at joints + reduces friction and absorbs shock.

I don't really know which is responsible for bone function and development. My guess would be elastic.

    Apparently both fibro and hyaline are responsible but im doing a multiple choice practice test so Im not too sure which it is :l
