The correct answer to this question is option A - Alert, Voice, Pain, Un-responsiveness
In First Aid, AVPU stands for Alert, Voice, Pain, and Un-responsiveness. It is used to measure a patient’s responsiveness during an emergency situation

A – Alert: this means that the patient is fully awake. This does not necessarily mean the person is oriented as well

V – Verbal: this means that the patient can respond when you talk to them. It could be eye movement, motor, or voice response.

P – Pain: this means the patient response when pain stimulus is applied.

U- Unresponsive: This means that the patient did not give any response, either voice, motor, or eye response to voice or pain stimulus.
