Question

(i)_______ will be present in a pregnancy kit and (ii)_________ will be present in the urine of a pregnant woman?
  1. (i) Anti-HCG antibodies (ii) HCG
  2. (i) HCG (ii) Anti-HCG antibody
  3. (i) IgG (ii) Anti-IgG antibody
  4. (i) Anti-IgG antibody (ii) IgG


Solution

The correct option is A (i) Anti-HCG antibodies (ii) HCG
HCG (Human chorionic gonadotrophin) is a hormone that is  produced by placental cells that nourish the fertilized egg after it is attached to the uterine wall. A pregnancy kit helps to determine whether a woman is pregnant. The urine of a pregnant woman will have HCG present in it and the pregnancy kit will have antibodies specific to HCG. A colored reaction helps in detecting the presence of HCG confirming a positive pregnancy.
