Default yup yup

u guys are ryte.. the answers were C & B.

i realise that they are prolly easy questions for u guys, but by posting some questions that i feel i might forget, i know now, after seeing the answers from others, i will always remember.

ps: of course, i'm not talking about memorizing answers merely, but surely, i understand the reasons to the answers.

Vd = volume of distribution.
