1. The distal convoluted tubules of many nephrons open into a straight tube called collecting duct, many of which converge and open into the renal pelvis through renal columns. 2. The Malpighian corpuscle, proximal convoluted tubule and distal convoluted tubule of the nephron are situated in the cortical region of the kidney whereas the loop of Henle dips into the medulla. Regarding 1 and 2 :


( A ) Both are incorrect
( B ) 1 is incorrect but 2 is correct
( C ) Both are correct
( D ) 1 is correct but 2 is incorrect

1 Answer

(B) is the right answer.

The distal convoluted tubules of many nephrons open into a straight tube called collecting duct, many of which converge and open into the renal pelvis through medullary pyramids in the calyces. The Malpighian corpuscle, proximal convoluted tubule and distal convoluted tubule of the nephron are situated in the cortical region of the kidney whereas the loop of Henle dips into the medulla.
