The ciliated epithelium is found in
Ciliated columnar epithelial cells are rectangular in shape and have between 200 to 300 hair-like protrusions, called as cilia. Cells are interconnected via desmosomes and tight junctions. Ciliated columnar epithelial cells are found mainly in the tracheal and bronchial regions of the pulmonary system and also in the fallopian tubes of the female reproductive system.

The formation of erythrocytes in foetus takes place in
In foetus, formation of erythrocytes takes place in liver and spleen. In young and adult red blood cells (erythrocytes) formation occurs in bone marrow.
The life span of RBC and WBC are respectively
Erythrocytes are also known as red blood cells that deliver oxygen to and remove carbon dioxide from tissues. Erythrocytes have a limited life span and as they age, their membranes become more fragile leading to a loss of function and swelling. This damage occurs as the fragile cells pass through narrow capillaries, which occurs in the spleen. The life span of the erythrocyte varies from 70-160 days in domestic species. The average lifespan of RBCs in human is 120 days.
The life span of WBC ranges from 6 - 20 days, depending on the type, after which they are destroyed in the lymphatic system. When immature WBCs are first released from the bone marrow into the blood, they are called bands or stabs. The life span of a circulating human neutrophil is about 5.4 days, while the life span of the monocyte is 10 - 20 hours.
