Answer Key : (d) -

(d)

Visceral muscles are located in the inner wall of hollow visceral organs of the body like the alimentary canal, reproductive tract, etc. They don’t exhibit any striation and are smooth in appearance hence they are called smooth muscles (non-striated muscles). Their activities are not under the voluntary control of the nervous system and are therefore, called involuntary muscles. They assist, for example, in the transportation of food through the digestive tract and gametes through the genital tract
