(C) Connective tissue

(D) Epithelial tissue

The Correct Answer is (C) Connective tissue


Connective tissue is the most abundant type of tissue in the animal body.

In all higher animals, connective tissue binds, connects, supports and separates different tissues and organs of the body. These specialised tissues contain collagen elastic and reticular fibres, which provide shape and size and join the connective tissues to neighbouring tissues.

Blood, bone, cartilage, adipose tissue (fat), and Areolar tissue are the different types of connective tissues.
