Expert Answer:

 

You could take any one of the figure given in the following sites. The labels are not exactly the same, since the parts of the nephron are also labelled. The labeling of proximal convoluted tubule, loop of Henle and distal convoluted tubule need not be given, instead you need to name any region after the glomerulus as the tubular part of nephron. Branch of renal vein is not shown in these figures. These are some of the simplest figures available, as also is the NCERT figure.
