Case Based MCQs

Direction Read the following and answer the questions that follow

The water vascular system in echinoderms is a unique and defining characteristic that acts as a vital part of whole animal’s body. It consists of hundreds to thousands of tubefeets that are found in the ambulacral grooves. Due to this, this system is also called ambulacral system. The water vascular system controls the tubefeets hydraulically through a complex of fluid-filled canals and reservoirs. In response, tubefeets perform various functions. Echinoderms also possess special structures for respiration.
