Answer Key : (c) -

(c)

The pacemaker creates the rhythmical impulse normally made by SA (sinu-atrial) node. Hence, it is implanted at the site of SA-node to mimic the action and to regulate the heart beat. SA-node is found in the upper part of the right atrium of the heart. It is a specialized bundle of neurons (nerve cells).
