Answer

A.

Convoluted tubules

The convoluted tubule is the highly convoluted segments of the nephron in the renal labyrinth of the kidney. It is made up of the proximal tubule leading from the Bowmans capsule to the descending limb of Henle's loop and  the distal tubule leading from the ascending limb of Henle's loop to a collecting tubule.
