|A.||Tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum longus|
Soleus and gastrocnemius
Plantaris and popliteus
Answer A) Tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum longus
The common fibular (peroneal) nerve passes around the head of the fibula and gives off deep (L4-5) and superficial fibular (peroneal) nerve (L5, S1-2) branches.
The two nerves supply the dorsiflexors and evertors of the foot, respectively. In this case, the tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum longus are the only muscles listed that are supplied by either of these nerve branches, and both are innervated by the deep fibular (peroneal) nerve.
The fibularis (peroneus) brevis and longus are innervated by the superficial fibular (peroneal) nerve and are evertors of the foot.
The tibial nerve supplies each of the other muscles listed.
