The answer provided was D-Cardiovascular, however in DIT it says that it should actually be renal.

Babies have anomalies in CV system, GI system, renal defects.
I guess then both are correct.

Of infants with a single umbilical artery, 20% or more are reported to have associated fetal anomalies, including cardiovascular abnormalities, GI defects, esophagal atesia, a variety of renal defects, and multiple anomaly syndromes.

According to kaplan it is Cardiovascular.
However, since there is no clear answer to this question this kind of question won't be on the exam OR there will be only one choice among Cardiovascular/ Renal among the answer choices.
