Solution

The correct option is A Clumped platelets and damaged tissues
The extrinsic pathway begins with a substance called tissue factor (tissue thromboplastin) released by damaged blood vessels and surrounding tissues. In the presence of other plasma proteins (clotting factors) and calcium ions , this leads to the activation of a protein called factor X.
Hence, the correct answer is (B)
