The ulna and the radius are the two bones in the forearm.

Latin: Ulnaris et. radialis.

If you hold your arm at your side with the palm forward ulna is palpable on the medial (inside) part of the forearm, whilst the radius is palpable on lateral (outside) side.

In layman terms, the radius is on the side of your thumb, and the ulna on the side of the pinky-finger.

Why is it necessary to have two bones in the lower arm instead of just one?

Two bones in the forearm are not necessary. However, to function normally, both the ulna and radius bones are required. Without the radius bone, the forearm could not be rotated, and without the ulna, the forearm would have little strength.

Why is having 2 bones in the arm better than 1?

The two bones in the forearm allow it to turn better, so it is not necessary to turn the whole arm in oreder to slightly change the angle of the hand. There are three bones in the human arm (radius, ulna, humerus), so the question needs to be revised. If the question was supposed to be why having two bones in the FOREARM is better than one, then the answer is because having two bones is what allows the forearm to rotate. If there were only one bone in the forearm, then we would not be able to do so.
