Which of the following is the correct ejaculatory pathway of sperm?

A. Epididymis, seminiferous tubules, vas deferens, ejaculatory ducts, urethra, penis
B. Seminiferous tubules, epididymis, vas deferens, ejaculatory ducts, urethra, penis
C. Seminiferous tubules, epididymis, ejaculatory ducts, vas deferens, urethra, penis
D. Epididymis, seminiferous tubules, ejaculatory ducts, vas deferens, urethra, penis

Click for Explanation

B is correct. Sperm are produced in the seminiferous tubules, then move to the epididymis to mature. Next, they pass through the vas deferens, ejaculatory ducts, and urethra, then exit the body through the penis. This pathway can be remembered using the mnemonic “SEVE(n) UP.”
