Your Answer
C

Your Answer
D

acoelomate
 

Solution

The correct option is B
pseudocoelomate
 
A coelom is a fluid-filled body cavity that separates organ systems from body walls. A true body cavity or coelom is the one that is present within the mesoderm, which is the middle germ layer in triploblastic organisms. Organisms like roundworm have a body cavity present between the endoderm and mesoderm hence it is referred to as a pseudocoelomate organism and the cavity is called false coelom.
