Correct option is B)

  • Digestion refers to the process where the food consumed by us is processed and broken down into smaller parts that can be absorbed by the body. 
  • Of all the parts of the digestive system, the connecting link from the mouth to the stomach is the oesophagus. It is a muscular tube that moves the partially digested food from mouth to the stomach for further digestion. 
  • Hence,  the oesophagus is the part of the digestive system where no digestion occurs. 
Therefore, the correct answer is option B.
