  1. Cerebellum→ Hindbrain
  2. Hypothalamus→ Forebrain
  3. Basal ganglia→ Midbrain

   Which of the above is/are correct?

Answer: [A] 1 & 2 Only

The basal ganglia are a set of interconnected nuclei in the forebrain. The cerebellums are two rounded structures located besides the medulla. The cerebellum is located behind the top part of the brain stem. The hypothalamus is located just below the thalamus, hence the name. It monitors pleasurable activities such as eating, drinking and sex.
