Correct Answer(d) Salivary gland


In humans, the salivary glands are exocrine glands and composed of parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands. The sublingual glands are a pair of major salivary glands located inferior to the tongue, anterior to the submandibular glands. The secretion produced is mainly mucous in nature; however, it is categorized as a mixed gland.

The main function of the salivary gland is to produce saliva through a system of ducts.
