all right, so to turn, to determine what we know that the central nervous system is comprised of Let's go through all the answers and define them and you'll there out. And so we One answer is the autonomic, the nervous system and the somatic nervous system. But we know that these two are both part of the peripheral nervous system periphery. Or, um, we also know that the Paris sympathetic as well as the sympathetic are two sub categories of the autonomic nervous system. And since the autonomic like I just said it with this somatic, are both part of the peripheral nervous system, all three of these ends all two of these answers cannot be it down here on the bottom, right?

Um, the brain and spinal cord are in the center of the body, and so that is how we can kind of reason through that, that is the central nervous system, because the brain and the spinal cord follow that line. That's center to the body, where the peripheral goes to the like per peripheral parts of your body, like your down your whims and, um, done your legs. So ah, yes. So the answer is your
