Solution

The correct option is D 2, 5, 3, 1, 4
The blood enters into the nephron through Bowman's capsule. Here, primary urine is formed by filtering out the waste and useful materials by the process of ultrafiltration.
The primary urine moves from the Bowman's capsule to proximal convoluted tubule (PCT) where reabsorption of useful materials takes place.
From PCT region the urine passes through the loop of Henle to distal convoluted tubule (DCT). Reabsorption of useful materials and secretion of unwanted materials take place in these regions.
At last, the urine is collected in the collecting duct and then is transferred out of the kidney.
