Although it is not possible to carry out experiments to test hypotheses about evolutionary relationships between living groups or about the timing of the origin of major evolutionary innovations, such hypotheses can be evaluated by making predictions about the expected findings that would result from these hypotheses. Data can then be collected to test whether these predictions are correct.

Q:

A universal recipient blood group belongs to

A) O B) A
C) B D) AB
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) AB

Explanation:

In transfusions of packed red blood cells, individuals with type O Rh D negative blood are often called universal donors. Those with type AB Rh D positive blood are called universal recipients.

The immune system of a person with AB blood will accept blood from all possible donors, whether they have O, A, B, or AB blood. Since both A and B antigens are present in a person with AB blood, the recipient won't reject the blood. The body identifies that blood as "self" rather than "foreign."
