Its D. Pudendal only supplies the anal sphincter, not the rectum per se, right?

D-Wkness of the voluntary sphincter of the bladder

It can't be C, cuz I think with a pudendal block they'll loose voluntary control over their anal sphincter just like their bladder. That would lead to an inability to inhibit defecation.

C is correct since: a branch of pudendal nerve ( hemorrhoidal branch )
supplies the external anal sphincter.
