Question

The process of ultrafiltration is performed by ___.


  1. Capsular space

  2. Collecting duct

  3. Glomerulus

  4. Renal Tubule


Solution

The correct option is C

Glomerulus


The process of ultrafiltration is carried out by glomerulus. The glomerulus is the finer capillary network seen in Bowman's capsule formed from afferent vessel. The minute pores in capillary wall help in ultrafiltration. At the same time, renal tubule reabsorbs most of the water, glucose and sodium ions. Collecting duct collects urine and carries to pelvis. Capsular space is the space between the walls of the Bowman's capsule.
