Question

In vertebrates, the yellow colour of urine is due to the presence of 
  1. bile pigments
  2. cholesterol
  3. urochrome
  4. bile salts


Solution

The correct option is C urochrome
Urochrome imparts the yellow colour to urine. Hemoglobin is broken down into bile salts and bile pigments. And they are further broken down into urochrome, which gives a yellow colour to urine and stercobilin, which gives brown colour to faeces.
