The inguinal canal is a passage located in the lower abdomen that connects the abdominal cavity to the scrotum. It is responsible for passing the spermatic cord, which is a bundle of blood vessels, nerves, and vas deferens (ducts that carry sperm from the testes to the urethra), into the scrotum. The spermatic cord is essential for providing blood supply and nerve function to the testes. Therefore, any damage to the inguinal tissue may cause bulging out of intestine into the scrotum, a condition called an inguinal hernia.

Option a is the correct answer.
