Which organs are part of the alimentary canal in the human digestive system?
A. Salivary glands, tongue, and pharynx
B. Large intestine, appendix, and rectum
C. Stomach, liver, and gallbladder
D. Oesophagus, pancreas, and small intestine

Correct Option: Answer is A
These organs work together to initiate the digestive process:
• Salivary glands: Produce saliva, which contains enzymes that begin breaking down food into simpler molecules.
• Tongue: Helps manipulate food in the mouth, mixes it with saliva, and forms it into a bolus (ball) for swallowing.
• Pharynx: Serves as a passageway for both food and air. It pushes the bolus down the esophagus towards the stomach.
