1. In haemostasis, which molecule polymerises to become the insoluble blood clot?
A. factor X
Answer is C : Fibrin is a monomer that polymerises to form a “soft clot”, then
crosslinking between fibrin produces a stable, web-like “hard clot”.

Answer is B : Type A blood means that the A antigen is on the red blood cells They also
have antibody B (= agglutinin B) in their plasma. An agglutinogen is an antigen that
stimulates production of agglutinin, hence antigen A is also known as agglutinogen A.

A. thrombin B. prothrombin
C. prothrombin activator D. fibrin
Answer is A : The second step is the formation of thrombin from prothrombin (first step
is formation of prothrombinase (=prothrombin activator).
