View the animation below, then complete the quiz to test your knowledge of the concept.






1Secretion...
A)occurs when the filtrate passes from the peritubular capillaries back to the nephron tubules.
B)occurs when blood fluids leave the afferent arteriole and enter the Bowman’s capsule.
C)occurs when blood fluids leave the glomerulus and enter the Bowman’s capsule.
D)occurs when the filtrate passes from the nephron tubules back to the efferent arteriole.
E)occurs when the filtrate passes from the nephron tubules back to the peritubular capillaries.



2Filtration...
A)occurs when the filtrate passes from the peritubular capillaries back to the nephron tubules.
B)occurs when blood fluids leave the afferent arteriole and enter the Bowman’s capsule.
C)occurs when blood fluids leave the glomerulus and enter the Bowman’s capsule.
D)occurs when the filtrate passes from the nephron tubules back to the efferent arteriole.
E)occurs when the filtrate passes from the nephron tubules back to the peritubular capillaries.



3Reabsorption...
A)occurs when the filtrate passes from the peritubular capillaries back to the nephron tubules.
B)occurs when blood fluids leave the afferent arteriole and enter the Bowman’s capsule.
C)occurs when blood fluids leave the glomerulus and enter the Bowman’s capsule.
D)occurs when the filtrate passes from the nephron tubules back to the efferent arteriole.
E)occurs when the filtrate passes from the nephron tubules back to the peritubular capillaries.

A)True
B)False
