A. True

This question was posed to me at a job interview.

The above asked question is from Animals Structural Organisations in portion Structural Organisations in Animals of Biology – Class 11

The correct option is B. False

To explain: False, as crop is used for the storage of food. It is a sac like structure that is located after the esophagus. The gizzard is located after the crop. Its function is the mechanical breakdown of food by grinding.
