    Ans is: 3.
    The lymphatic vessels of the clitoris and labia minora are drained into the deep inguinal nodes while some clitoral lymphatic vessels may directly drain into the internal iliac nodes. These nodes are part of the lateral aortic nodes, which form the lumbar trunk that ends in the abdominal confluence of lymph trunks or the cisterna chyli.
