D
Sulphates and water

Solution

The correct option is A Plasma without blood proteins
Fluids from blood in the glomerulus are collected in the Bowman's capsule (i.e., glomerular filtrate) and further processed along the nephron to form urine. This process is known as ultrafiltration. As the blood plasma flows through the nephrons, its composition changes. Fluids comprising excess water, salt and metabolic waste products are extracted from the blood as it enters the Bowman's capsule in the nephrons. This fluid in the Bowman's capsule is called glomerular filtrate. It is similar to blood plasma except that it has almost no protein.
