  7. P.G.C. of germinal epithelium is endodermal in origin.
  8. First of all from P.G.C. follicle cells are formed. Fuse to form egg nest.
  9. One is developing ovum, rest cells are destroyed to give nourishment to developing ovum.
  10. Destroyed cells are atratic cells. This phenomenon is atrasia.
