Default ans is E

i guess it should be E..but the problem is in adrenal only fasiculata & reticularis is in control of ACTH & aldo is controlled by renin & Na conc in plasma.. so if in ans list one more option present that's for inc in cortisol & androgen then i will go for that... but as far as quest is concerned , if toxin stimulate all the layers then its E and if this toxin blocks all hormones then it is f.....
