Correct Answer C) 8

The correct answer is C. 8

APGAR is an acronym for appearance, pulse, grimace, activity, and respiration; the APGAR score is taken at 1 minute and 5 minutes after birth. On each parameter, a maximum score of 2 is possible. In this case, one point was taken off for cyanosis of the hands and feet; one point was taken off for irregular respirations. The neonate received the maximum score of 2 for all of the other parameters, leading to an APGAR of 8.
