Solution

The correct option is B

False


In females, FSH initiates follicular growth, specifically affecting granulosa cells. This seems to be critical in selecting only the most advanced follicle to proceed to ovulation. FSH stimulates the ovarian follicle, causing an egg to grow. It also triggers the production of estrogen in the follicle. The rise in estrogen tells the pituitary gland to stop producing FSH and to start making more LH. The shift to LH causes the egg to be released from the ovary, by the process called ovulation. Without FSH, ovarian follicles are not stimulated to produce eggs and ovulation does not happen.
