Hey there! All answers are correct except for the 3rd question that answer should be a. nephron, ureter, urinary bladder, urethra.
Urine is first produced and goes through the nephron, a small filtering structure found in the kidneys that removes wastes from blood and produces urine. Then, it goes through the ureter, a narrow tube that carries urine from one of the kidneys to the bladder. Then, it goes through the urinary bladder, a sack-like muscular organ that stores urine until it is eliminated from the body. Finally the urethra, a small tube through which urine leaves the body transports the urine out of the body.
Hope this helped! :)
