Solution

The correct option is B

Villi


The finger-like projections found on the surface of the small intestine are known as villi. Villi increase the surface area of the small intestine to absorb the nutrients. Each villus is approximately 0.5-1.6 mm in length. Villi also help the intestines to move food along the digestive pathways.
