Solution

The correct option is D Afferent neurons; interneurons; efferent neurons
Sensory neurons: These neurons are also called afferent neurons. Their function is to receive initial stimuli from sense organs.

Interneurons: These types of neurons are also called connector neurons or association neurons. They “read” impulses received from sensory neurons. Interneurons are found in the spinal cord or brain.

Motor neurons: These neurons are also called efferent neurons, and their function is to stimulate effector cells.
