All the following are factors which predispose to recurrent lateral dislocation of patella except
|A||Generalized ligament laxity|
|B||Underdevelopment of the lateral femoral condyle and flattening of the intercondylar groove|
|C||Maldevelopment of the patella which may be too high or too small.|
|D||Posterior cruciate ligament tear.|
