Human urine is usually acidic because?
 

1. hydrogen ions are actively secreted into the filtrate.
2. the sodium transporter exchanges one hydrogen ion for each sodium ion, in peritubular capillaries.
3. excreted plasma proteins are acidic
4. Potassium and sodium exchange generates acidity

Figure shows a human urinary system with structures labelled A to D. Select option which correctly identifies them and gives their characteristics and/or functions. 
    
 

1. B-pelvis - broad funnel-shaped space inner to the hilum, directly connected to loops of Henle.
2. C- Medulla- inner zone of kidney and contains complex nephrons.
3. D- Cortex- outer part of the kidney and does not contain any part of nephrons.
4. A- Adrenal gland- located at the anterior part of the kidney; secretes catecholamines which stimulate glycogen breakdown.

A fall in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) activates:
1.  Adrenal cortex to release aldosterone
2.  Adrenal medulla to release adrenaline
3.  Posterior pituitary to release vasopressin

Which one of the following correctly explains the function of a specific part of a human nephron?
1. Henle’s loop – most reabsorption of the major substances from the glomerular filtrate
2. Distal convoluted tubule – reabsorption of ions into the surrounding blood capillaries
3. Afferent arteriole – carries the blood away from the glomerulus towards renal vein
4. Podocytes - create minute spaces (slit pores) for the filtration of blood into the Bowman’s capsule
