    The physical consequences of chronic bronchitis and asthma can lead to the formation of scar tissue in the lungs, permanently blocking bronchi. The inflammation also causes damage to alveoli walls, causing small alveoli to merge into fewer, larger sacs. This merging (grouping) of alveoli:
    • A. 

      Increases gas exchange, so more oxygen diffuses to the capillaries.

    • B. 

      Reduces gas exchange, so less oxygen diffuses to the capillaries.

    • C. 

      Reduces gas exchange, so more oxygen diffuses to the capillaries.

    • D. 

      Increases gas exchange, so less oxygen diffuses to the capillaries.
