Which of the part of tongue bears cells for sour taste?

A. Front
B. Back
C. Sides
D. Middle

Check Answer

The correct answer is C) Sides.

The tongue is an organ that helps in identifying various tastes like sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami. The taste buds are located on the papillae of the tongue, and they contain taste receptor cells that help in identifying different tastes. The sour taste is detected by the taste buds located on the sides of the tongue. The taste buds that detect sour taste contain cells that respond to acidic substances. When an acidic substance comes in contact with these cells, it triggers a neural response that is interpreted by the brain as a sour taste.
