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."
