Solution

The correct option is A

Renal corpuscle; Proximal tubule; Loop of Henle; Distal tubule; Collecting duct


The following is the order of flow of fluid: 

  1. Bowman's Corpuscle - The nephron begins as a blind, cup-like pocket called Bowman's capsule. The capsule envelopes a bundle of capillaries called the glomerulus. Bowman's capsule and glomerulus make up the renal corpuscle.
  2. Proximal convoluted tubule - is the longest and widest segment of the nephron.
  3. Loop of Henle - The cells of the descending limb of the loop are simple squamous and give this region of the tubule a narrow diameter.
  4. Distal convoluted tubule - Following the loop, the nephron continues as the distal tubule.
  5. Collecting duct - Collecting duct is a long, straight tube where the maximum reabsorption of water takes place to produce concentrated urine.
