In the given diagram of areolar connective tissue, the different cells and parts have been marked by alphabets (A, B, C & D). Choose the answer in which these alphabets correctly match with the parts and cells they indicate.
A. A-Adipocyte, B-Collagen fibres, C-Microfilament, D-Mast cells
B. A-Macrophage, B-Collagen fibres, C-Microfilament, D-Mast cells
C. A-Macrophage, B-Collagen fibres, C-Microtubule, D-RBC
D. A-Macrophage, B-Fibroblast, C-Collagen fibres, D-Mast cells
Correct Answer : D.
The given figure represents loose connective tissue (areolar tissue). Loose connective tissue has cells and fibres loosely arranged in a semi-fluid ground substances, for example, areolar tissue present beneath the skin. Often it serves as a support framework for epithelium. It contains fibroblasts (cells that produce and secrete fibres), macrophages and mast cells.
