Solution

The correct option is D NK cells
Areolar tissue is found in many locations around the body. One important area is the skin. The areolar tissue located in the skin binds the outer layers of the skin to the muscles beneath. Areolar tissue is also found in or around mucous membranes, and around blood vessels, nerves, and the organs of the body.

The key functions of areolar tissue can be summarised as providing:

  • Support
  • Strength, and
  • Elasticity.

The different types of cells embedded within the areolar tissue include:

  • Fibroblasts
  • Plasma Cells
  • Adipocytes
  • Mast Cells, and
  • Macrophages.
Thus, NK cells are absent in areolar connective tissue.
