  1. B is the answer and the winner is Eze.
    Details Below:
    The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a non-specific test that indicates
    conditions of inflammation, infection, malignancy and tissue necrosis or infarc-
    tion. The test is a measure of the rate at which red blood cells settle out of
    mixed venous blood over a specified period. The test requires that a blood
    sample is aspirated into a calibrated sedimentation tube and blood is allowed
    to settle usually for 60 minutes. ESR together with other indicators may be used
    to evaluate disease progression.
