Correct option is A)

Smooth muscle fibers or cells are elongated and spindle-shaped. The main function of these muscle fibers is peristalsis. It happens in the tubular viscera. That’s why smooth muscle fibers are present in the wall of the alimentary canal. The autonomous nervous system controls the action of these muscles. Thus, they are involuntary muscles.
Thus, the correct answer is option A.
