Dear student,

On the tongue, papillae are situated anteriorly to the sulcus terminalis. There are three types of papillae on the tongue: filiform papillae, circumvallate papillae and fungiform papillae. The filiform papillae are the smallest and most abundant. Filiform papillae are the only papillae on the tongue which do not contain taste buds. Circumvallate papillae large papillae arranged in a "V" shape. Fungiform papillae are mushroom shaped. Taste buds are found on circumvallate and fungiform. Thus, the correct answer is option A.

Thank you
