Solution

The correct option is A

The electrical activity of the heart


ECG or an electrocardiogram is used to obtain a graphical record of the electrical current that is produced by the electrical activity and excitation of the heart. An ECG is obtained by leads or electrodes placed on the body that detect electrical impulses passing through the skin, but originate from the heart.
