Both a & c

Answers (1)


The male urethra is approximately 15-20cm long. In addition to urine, the male urethra transports semen – a fluid containing spermatozoa and sex gland secretions.

Male urethra can be divided anatomically into three parts (proximal to distal) - prostatic, membranous and bulbar urethra.

Prostatic urethra:

  • Begins as a continuation of the bladder neck and passes through the prostate gland.
  • Receives the ejaculatory ducts (containing spermatozoa from the testes and seminal fluid from the seminal vesicle glands) and the prostatic ducts (containing alkaline fluid).
  • It is the widest and most dilatable portion of the urethra. 

Hence option A is correct.
