Dear student 
Collecting ducts are straight tube present in kidney, many of which converge and open into the renal pelvis through medullary pyramids in the calyces. The DCT (Distal convoluted tubules) of many nephrons open into collecting duct. Hence collecting duct is not a part of the nephron.
So, the correct answer is 'Collecting duct'.
