Answer

In humans, the pars intermedia is almost merged with the pars distalis.

To understand this better, let's go through the anatomical structure of the pituitary gland, which includes both the anterior and posterior pituitary. The anterior pituitary is further divided into three parts:

  1. Pars tuberalis
  2. Pars intermedia
  3. Pars distalis

The pars intermedia resides between the pars tuberalis and pars distalis. It is observed that the pars intermedia is closely attached and nearly merged with the pars distalis, while it shows no such attachment to the posterior pituitary (pars nervosa).

Therefore, the correct answer is:

A) Pars distalis
