Solution

The correct option is D Counter current multiplier system
The loop of Henle is found in the medulla of the Kidney. Its primary function is reabsorption of NaCl and water. Through the counter-current multiplier effect, a hypertonic medulla is created allowing reabsorption of water from the collecting duct and the descending limb via osmosis. 

So, the correct option is 'Option D, Counter current multiplier system.'.
