1) He probably is in the window period of Hepatitis infection...so e?.

2) Hypertension related complication..how did his parents die...anything mentioned?...i would go with serum creatinine...as renal morbidity is one of the significant for hypertension..?.

3)Definitely CHF...so a transudative PE...rules out c and e( both are for exudative PE)...not d as why there would be so many neutrophils..no fever either..not sure about a ...so i would go with b?..
