  • Micturition will continue

Answer

C.

Urine will continue to collect normally in the bladder

The urinary bladder is a pear-shaped, hollow muscular organ situated in the pelvic cavity, which is made up of smooth and involuntary muscles. The lumen of the urinary bladder is line by transition epithelium, which has great power of stretching. If stretch receptors of urinary bladder wall are totally removed, the urine will continue to collect normally in the bladder.
