Why is Adam's Apple more prominent in males? Is it due to bigger voice box pushing the cartilage more, or is the cartilage indeed bigger than that in females? I am assuming bigger voice box as males have a "deeper" sound. Is it correct to do so?
Yes, you nailed it!
The Adam's apple is more prominent in males because males have have a bigger larynx (giving males a deeper voice). In males, the prominent Adam's apple typically appears during adolescence, when the larynx increases in size and the voice becomes deeper.
