The correct answer to this question is A, large intestine. It is also known as the large bowel. Along with removing waste, water is absorbed in the large intestine. The feces are stored before being removed by the process of excretion. The large intestine is apart of the digestive system, and the colon is the most significant part of it.

Many think that the large intestine and the colon are the same things, but they are not — instead, the large intestine combines the colon, rectum, cecum, and anal canal. In most humans, the large intestine is about 5 feet long.

The large intestine is the answer to this question which means that A is the answer. The digestive system may be composed of different parts but it is the large intestine that is in charge of getting rid of the water and making the feces solid before they can be defecated.

Those that are removed from the body are considered to be useless. The large intestine is also known to have some major parts such as the cecum wherein the appendix is located. The second major part is known as the colon and this can be divided into three parts namely ascending, transverse, and descending. The last major part of the colon is known as the sigmoid.
