The answer is "C" ... Becasuse, the fetal heart starts beating at age of 4 weeks ... But Fetal heart tone is firstly heard with a Doppler Stethoscope at age of 10-12 weeks. So, if the new device can detect the earliest heart sound, it can best do that as early as age of 4 weeks in order to be effective and good one.
