Expert Answer:

Columnar epithelium consists of tall and column like cells. This epithelium rests on a basement membrane. The nuclei are present towards the base of the cells. They are present wherever absorption and secretion occur. So they are found in the inner lining of intestine and stomach. They are also present in the lining of oviducts.
