Solution

The correct option is D Alkaline, acid
  • Wasps have the ability to sting repeatedly. Only female wasps have stingers, which are actually modified egg-laying organs.
  • Wasp sting venom is alkaline and so its effects can be neutralised with vinegar or acid and this neutralisation then reduces the pain.
