Male germ cells divide by meiosis inside the _______ .

  1. a. urethra
  2. b. seminiferous tubules
  3. c. prostate gland
  4. d. vasa deferentia

Summary Introduction

Concept introduction: The male reproductive system helps to produce sperm by spermatogenesis that is bathed in liquid called semen. During spermatogenesis, the primordial germ cell undergoes meiosis.

Explanation

Reason for correct statement:

The testis produces the sperms by the process of gametogenesis. The testis consists of highly convoluted seminiferous tubules. The spermatogenesis starts from the periphery of the seminiferous tubules, and the sperms are released into the lumen. The sperm mature in the epididymis from the lumen of seminiferous tubule. The matured sperms enter the vas deferens. The sperms enter the seminal vesicles and prostate gland where sperms are bathed in the seminal fluid. The sperms along with the semen are ejaculated through the urethra.

Option b. is given as “seminiferous tubules”.

As meiosis of male germ cells occurs in the seminiferous tubules, the correct answer is option b.

Reasons for incorrect statements:

Option a...
