The correct answer is Option 3 which states that  it lines the respiratory tract and moves mucus

Simple ciliated epithelium is a single layer of cells that are equipped with cilia. It is commonly found lining parts of the respiratory tract, where the cilia work together to move mucus and foreign particles away from the lungs and towards the throat, where they can be swallowed or expelled. This helps in protecting the respiratory system and keeping it clear of debris.
