Solution :-

Liver is one of the most important organs of our body as it helps in passing out digestive wastes along with other substances like bilirubin, biliverdin, vitamins, etc.
Lungs carry gases from the atmosphere to the inside and remove carbon dioxide from the body with small quantities of water with them. The skin consists of both the sweat gland and sebaceous gland which help in the excretion of sweat in the form of watery fluid with NaCl along with urea and lactic acids. The sebaceous gland helps in the excretion of sterols, hydrocarbons, and waxes.
