Question

The blood group which is the universal acceptor is  __(i)__ and the one that is universal donor is __(ii)____.


  1. (i) AB, (ii) O

  2. (i) O, (ii) AB

  3. (i)A, (ii)B

  4. (i) O, (ii)A


Solution

The correct option is A

(i) AB, (ii) O


AB+ is the universal acceptor as the blood group contains A, B and Rh antigens; contains no antibodies in its serum. Blood group O-, on the other hand, is the universal donor as it contains neither antigen A nor B, nor the Rh antigen, and as a result has A, B and Rh antibodies in its serum.
