As discussed in

male sex accessory ducts -

The male sex accessory ducts include rete testis, vasa efferentia, epididymis and vas deferens.

- wherein

The seminiferous tubules of the testis open into the vasa efferentia through rete testis. The vasa efferentia leave the testis and open into epididymis located along the posterior surface of each testis. The epididymis leads to vas deferens that ascends to the abdomen and loops over the urinary bladder. It receives a duct from seminal vesicle and opens into urethra as the ejaculatory duct.

 

Pathway of sperm transport.

Rete testis \rightarrow Efferent ductules \rightarrow Epididymis \rightarrow Vas deferens

Rete testis \rightarrow Efferent ductules \rightarrow Epididymis \rightarrow Vas deferens

this is the correct option.

Option 2)

Rete testis \rightarrow Epididymis \rightarrow Efferent ductules \rightarrow Vas deferens

this is the incorrect option.

Option 3)

Rete testis \rightarrow Vas deferens \rightarrow Efferent ductules \rightarrow Epididymis

this is the incorrect option.

Option 4)

Efferent ductules \rightarrow Rete testis \rightarrow Vas deferens \rightarrow Epididymis

this is the incorrect option.
