Question

Which of the following does not act as an endocrine gland as well as an exocrine gland?
(a) testis
(b) ovary
(c) pituitary
(d) pancreas

Solution

(c) Pituitary

The pituitary gland is an endocrine gland, while the ovary, testis and pancreas are heterocrine glands. Those glands which are partly exocrine (with duct) and partly endocrine (without duct) are known as heterocrine glands. Here, the exocrine part releases secretion into the duct, while the endocrine part releases hormones into blood.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
