MCQs on Human Digestive System

Human digestive system comprises an alimentary canal or gastrointestinal tract and associated digestive glands. The food that we eat gets broken down into simpler compounds for absorption. There are various enzymes and hormones secreted by various glands and cells of the digestive system, which facilitate the digestion of food. The undigested food is expelled out of the body through the anus. The main organs of the digestive system include the mouth, pharynx, oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, rectum and anus. There are various types of digestive glands present, e.g. salivary glands, pancreas, liver, etc.
