answer no 1:A tissue is a group of cells that have a similar shape and function. Different types of tissues can be found in different organs. In humans, there are four basic types of tissue: epithelial, connective, muscular, and nervous tissue.

answer no 2:Epithelial tissue is one of the four major tissue types in the body, acting as an interface between the body and the rest of the world. Your skin is composed of epithelial tissue, and epithelial tissue also lines your body cavities and major organs. There are several different types of epithelial tissue, which form to fulfill specific needs and functions.
