a. 5000 
b. 10000 
c. 15000 
d. 20000





The correct answer is: a. 5000.

The increment in platelet count depends on many factors but if all other factors are absent then 1 unit of whole blood derived random platelet increases the platelet count by 5,000/mm3 per square metre. So in a person of BSA 2 m2. It should raise by 10000/mm3 and of 1.5 m2 by 7500/mm3 respectively.
