Expert Answer:

Many situations require quick reactions. There is no time to think and act. In such cases, reflex actions are important. The reflex arcs are formed in the spinal cord itself, hence there is no need for actual thought process to take place. Reflex arcs have evolved as efficient ways of functioning in several emergency situations.
