Abstract: The $ k$-connective bounding group $ {\theta ^n}(k)$ and the $ k$-connective inertial group $ {I^n}(k)$ are defined as subgroups of $ {\theta ^n}$, the group of smooth $ n$-spheres, $ n \geqq 7$. It is shown $ {I^n}(k)$ is contained in $ {\theta ^n}(k)$. Consequently, the image of the Milnor-Novikov pairing $ {\tau _{n,k}}$ is contained in $ {\theta ^{n + k}}(k)$ when $ n \geqq k + 2$. It follows that $ {\tau _{7,3}} = 0$.
