Can anyone help me two questions that involve the bones?

Does anyone know what these are? I've been trying to finish my study guide for my final but I am stuck on these last two. I'm sure the answers are probably easy but for the life of me I can't figure out the answers and my mind is going blank. Anyone know them?

Creating a smaller angle at a joint is called _________________.
Creating a larger angle at a joint is called __________________.

They are all I have left and I can't find them anywhere in my notes so idk lol.

A motion which creates a more acute angle (a smaller angle) between the bones of a joint is called flexion.

A motion which creates a less acute angle (a larger angle) between the bones of a joint is called extension.

The movement that results in a smaller angle at a joint is called flexion. It decreases the angle between the bones of the limb at a joint. On the other hand, the movement resulting in increased angle is called extension or is sometimes substituted with 'flexed' in case it is an action.

Didn't Mary Jo just say that? Exactly the same way?
