    Solution:

    The pancreas is a composite gland which acts as both exocrine and endocrine gland. 

    The endocrine part of the pancreas consists of ‘Islets of Langerhans’ which secrete the hormones insulin, glucagon, somatostatin and pancreatic polypeptide. 

    The exocrine part of the pancreas consists of pancreatic acini which secrete pancreatic juice that contains various digestive enzymes.
