Solution

The correct option is C

Brain


White matter is made of axons connecting different parts of grey matter to each other. In the brain proper, grey matter forms the outer layer of the brain, and white matter forms the inner layer. In the spine, this is reversed: white matter forms the outer layer of the spine, and grey matter the inner layer.
