Solution

The correct option is B Papillae
  • Lingual papillae (singular papilla) are the small, nipple-like structures on the upper surface of the tongue that give it its characteristic rough texture.
  •  The four types of papillae on the human tongue have different structures and are accordingly classified as circumvallate (or vallate), fungiform, filiform, and foliate. All except the filiform papillae are associated with taste buds. Hence, Papillae states the location of taste buds on the tongue.
 So, the correct answer is 'Papillae'.
