Solution

The correct option is D

The urine will be more concentrated


Kidneys of desert animals have longer loops of Henle to make the animals' urine as concentrated as possible. The principal function of the loop of Henle appears to be the recovery of water and sodium chloride from the urine. This helps desert animals live for long periods of time on minimal amounts of water.
