It stimulates the heart, dilates blood vessels, and relaxes bronchial smooth muscles. Adrenaline is released in response to stress or danger, preparing the body for a fight-or-flight response. It increases heart rate, widens blood vessels to increase blood flow, and relaxes the muscles around the airways to improve breathing.

    Explanation
    Anemia is the correct answer because it refers to a condition where there is a deficiency in the amount of hemoglobin in red blood cells. Hemoglobin is responsible for carrying oxygen to the body's tissues, so a deficiency can lead to symptoms like fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath. Globin deficiency, leukemia, and cryoglobulinemia are not accurate terms for this specific condition.

    Correct Answer
    A. Civil action
    Explanation
    A lawsuit refers to a legal dispute between two parties that is resolved in a court of law. In this context, a civil action is the correct answer as it accurately describes the nature of a lawsuit. Civil actions involve non-criminal matters and typically involve one party seeking compensation or resolution for a perceived wrong or harm caused by another party. This distinguishes it from a felony, which refers to a serious criminal offense, and a tort, which is a wrongful act that causes harm to someone's property or person. A summons, on the other hand, is a legal document that notifies an individual of a lawsuit and requires their appearance in court.
