Correct Answer: (d) Mouth ---> Oesophagus ---> Stomach ---> Small intestine ---> Large intestine

Explanation: The food enters through the mouth and then it reaches the stomach via the esophagus where the food is digested. Then it moves to the small intestine where most of the nutrients are absorbed and reaches the large intestine. The large intestine absorbs all the water and the undigested food is moved to the rectum and is removed from the body through the anus.
