  1. E is the answer and the winners are Ada and Nikitn.
    Details Below:
    Human chorionic gonadotrophin is a hormone that is secreted by trophoblastic
    cells in the placenta and is excreted in the urine of pregnant women. It
    stimulates the corpus luteum to secrete oestrogen and progesterone and to
    decrease lymphocyte activation. Its presence in urine is used as the indicator
    for pregnancy in pregnancy tests.
