The correct answer is option C
When stacking surgical attire (PPE) an assistant PPE should be placed on top since the assistant scrub in before the surgeon. Also, the towel should be placed on top of the gown and the gloves beneath the gown.

Since the assistant prefers a size 8 gloves and XL gown, while the surgeon prefers 7.5 size gloves and large paper gown, the order of the arrangement will be: Towel, XL cloth gown, size 8 gloves, Towel, larger paper gown and size 7.5 gloves.

Option A is wrong because the assistant does not prefer size 7.5 gloves and the surgeons doesn’t prefer size 6 gloves.

Option B is wrong because gloves are not placed on top of towel and gowns.

Option D is wrong because assistant doesn’t prefer a larger paper gown or size 7.5 gloves, neither does the surgeon prefer size XL gown or size 8 gloves.
