    D) Ascending limb of loop of Henie is impermeable to electrolytes

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    [C] The plasma fluid that niters out from' glomerular capillaries into Bowman's capsule of nephron is called glomerular filtrate. A comparison of the volume of the filtrate formed per day (180 L/day) with that of the urine released (1.5 L), suggests that nearly 99 per cent of the filtrate has to be reabsorbed by the renal tubules.  This process is called reabsorption.
