    It is going to be "A transverse cut through the anterior side of the knee". (: This is because the opposing answer "A sagittal cut" cuts the knee vertically versus a transverse cut.

    The Transverse cut divides the body horizontally (superior and inferior) into top half and bottom half and rotation happens in that plane. Anterior in humans means the front facing (ventral, direction from where heart comes first) and posterior means back facing (dorsal, direction from when vertebrae comes first).

    NOTE: This will also be called as a cross section. Cross section is any section which is made on right angle to the longitudinal axis of the body.
