Hi Gary! The answer would most likely be B:the pharynx is above the epiglottis and the larynx is below it. It can't be A because the larynx is what contains the vocal cords. It can't be C either because the pharynx doesn't directly connect to the bronchi.  It can't also be D because air and food pass through the pharynx. Food does not pass through the larynx.  Below is a diagram showing where the pharynx and larynx is located. You'll see how the pharynx is above the larynx, with the epiglottis in between making B the correct answer. Hope this helped you understand more! Have a wonderful day! :D
