In the the nephron of the kidney,  ascending limb of the loop of Henle is a portion of the heterogenous loop of Henle downstream of the descending loop .The Henle loop of  ascending limb  is a direct continuation from the descending limb of loop of Henle.The ascending limb has a thick and thin segment. Ascending limb is largely impermeable to water. potassium (K+) sodium (Na+) and chloride (Cl−) ions are reabsorbed by active transport.

Hence given statement is false as first portion of Nephron loop is called descending loop
