Solution

The correct option is C 60% plasma, 40% corpuscles
Plasma is the fluid component in which the blood cells are suspended. These blood cells include 
Red blood cells (erythrocytes) - carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. 
White blood cells (leukocytes) - help fight infections and aid in the immune process. 
Platelets (thrombocytes) - help in blood clotting. 
Whole blood contains red cells, white cells, and platelets (~45% of volume) suspended in plasma (~55% of volume). Thus, option A is correct.
