Solution

The correct options are

B

Helps in the exchange of material between the mother and foetus 


D

Protects it from shocks


The growth of the foetus completes within the amnion, the membranous covering formed from the embryonic cells during the initial stages of growth. The amniotic fluid within this covering prevents the dehydration of the foetus and it protects it from shock. It also serves to facilitate the exchange of nutrients and water between the mother the foetus.
