(i) All of the listed structures contribute to form a kidney i.e. Loop of Henle, Bowman’s capsule, distal convoluted tubule, glomerulus, proximal convoluted tubule.
(ii) The proper sequence of occurrence of the structures follow: glomerulus; Bowman’s capsule; proximal convoluted tubule; Loop of Henle; distal convoluted tubule
Explanation: The entering afferent arteriole branches and produces a knot of afferent capillaries fits inside the Bowman’s capsule. The reuniting capillaries known as the efferent arteriole emerges from the Bowman’s capsule and runs a short distance then divides into secondary capillary network, the vasa recta. The vasa recta first surround the proximal convoluted tubule followed by the Loop of Henle and in the end the distal convoluted tubule. Then it rejoins to form a vein which ultimately unites with other emerging vein to finally form the renal vein which leaves the kidney.
