Solution

The correct option is A Somatic neural system relays impulses from the CNS to skeletal muscles.
  • The peripheral neural system has two parts- an automatic neural system and a somatic neural system. The PNS consists of all the nerves and ganglia other than that from the brain and spinal cord.
  • SNS is associated with the voluntary control of the body and ANS with the involuntary control movements of the body.
  • The somatic neural system relays impulses from the CNS to skeletal muscles while the autonomic neural system transmits impulses from the CNS to the involuntary organs and smooth muscles of the body.
  • The autonomic neural system is further classified into the sympathetic neural system and parasympathetic neural system.
So, the correct answer is option A.
