Question

Where does the first step in the process of urine formation occur?


  1. Glomerulus

  2. Renal tubule

  3. Collecting duct

  4. Kidneys


Solution

The correct option is A

Glomerulus


The first step in urine formation is also known as ultrafiltration. This process starts in glomerulus, which is a tuft of blood capillaries. The glomerulus is nestled inside a cup-like sac located at the end of each nephron which is known as Bowman's capsule. Blood undergoes filtration through the pores of glomerulus.
