Solution

The correct option is C Somatic nerves
The sensory-somatic nervous system is composed of cranial and spinal nerves and contains both sensory and motor neurons. Sensory neurons transmit sensory information from the skin, skeletal muscle, and sensory organs to the central nervous system (CNS).
The sympathetic nervous system prepares the body for intense physical activity and is often referred to as the fight-or-flight response.
The parasympathetic nervous system has almost the exact opposite effect and relaxes the body and inhibits or slows many high energy functions.
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) regulates the functions of our internal organs (the viscera) such as the heart, stomach, and intestines.
