    Correct Answer
    B. Admission and discharge
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "admission and discharge" because the abbreviation "A&D" is commonly used in healthcare settings to refer to the process of admitting a patient to a hospital or healthcare facility and then discharging them once their treatment is complete.

Its main function is to regulate the amount of water in the body by controlling the amount of urine produced by the kidneys. ADH acts on the kidneys to increase water reabsorption, reducing the amount of urine produced and helping to maintain water balance in the body. Therefore, the correct answer is antidiuretic hormone.
