  2. B) Stroma
  3. C) Theca interna
  4. D) Granulosa

Answer:A) Zona pellucida

Explanation: The tertiary follicle and Graafian follicle are also known as antral follicles due to the presence of antrum, i.e. the fluid-filled cavity. The acellular layer in the antral follicle is zona pellucida, which surrounds the oocyte. It is made up of a glycoprotein matrix. Zona pellucida layer is secreted by both oocytes and follicles. It is surrounded by corona radiata.
