Solution

The correct option is B False
  • The nervous system is divided into two major subdivisions. They are the Central nervous system(brain and spinal cord) and peripheral nervous system.
  • The peripheral nervous system is in turn divided into two divisions. They are a somatic and autonomic nervous system.
  • The main function of the PNS is to connect the CNS to the limbs and organs, essentially serving as a relay between the brain and spinal cord and the rest of the body.
  • The autonomous nervous system is completely independent of the central nervous system is a false statement because, within the brain, the autonomic nervous system is regulated by the hypothalamus(part of CNS).
