    The correct answer is: A. A watery mixture of partially digested food released by the stomach into the intestines

    Chyme or chymus is formed in the stomach, during the process of digestion (it takes 40 minutes to 3 hours to be produced) , and it is transported to the small intestine-duodenum.

    In the beginning of the digestion (in the mouth), mixture of food and saliva called bolus, is formed. Mechanical and chemical breakdown of a bolus creates chime which is ready for the extraction of nutrients from it.
