  1. B is the answer and winners are : Olawale and Maryam.Details below:
    Carbidopa is a dopa-decarboxylase inhibitor that reduces the conversion of
    levodopa in the periphery before it reaches the brain. By administering
    levodopa with carbidopa, a lower dose of levodopa is required to achieve
    an effective brain-dopamine concentration.
