1. Synaptic cleft of neurons secrete adrenaline.

4. Spinal cord and cranial nerves are made up of non-myelinated nerve fibres.

Solution

The correct option is E 2 and 3 are correct while 1 and 4 are wrong.
Myelin sheath is the insulating envelope of myelin, that surrounds the core of a nerve fiber or axon and that facilitates the transmission of nerve impulses, formed from the cell membrane of the Schwann cell in the peripheral nervous system and from oligodendroglia cells. Nonmyelinated nerve fiber lacks the fatty myelin insulating sheath. Such fibers form the gray matter of the nervous system, as distinguished from the white matter of myelinated fibers.
