Solution

The correct option is A involuntary, fusiform, non-striated
Smooth muscles are involuntary as their functioning cannot be directly controlled. They are fusiform (taper at both ends), uninucleated and non-striated. They are located in the wall of the internal organs such as blood vessels, intestine and stomach.

Skeletal muscle tissues are multinucleated, voluntary and striated.
