Answers (1)


This assertion-reason is incorrect. Peyer's patches are not glandular tissue and they do not produce digestive enzymes. Instead, they are clusters of lymphoid follicles that are important for immune surveillance and defense against pathogens. Peyer's patches contain immune cells like T cells, B cells, and macrophages, which help in detecting and responding to invading pathogens and antigens. Therefore, the assertion is false and the reason given to support it is also false. Peyer's patches do not produce any digestive enzymes and are not involved in the breakdown of food.

Option 4 is the correct answer.
