Correct Answer

Your Answer
D

Descending limb of loop of Henle is permeable to electrolytes.


Solution

The correct option is A

Nearly 99% of the glomerular filtrate is reabsorbed by the renal tubules.


Only about 1% of the glomerular fitrate actually leaves the body because the rest (the other 99%) is reabsorbed into the blood while it passes through the renal tubules and ducts. This is called tubular reabsorption.
