Sample Questions #3

  1. Hey everybody,

    Thought I would throw out another practice question.

    Let me know what you think and any specific deductive reasoning used.

    I especially enjoyed dsczephyr (Denise's) response to Sample Question #2 and how she deduces the answer that she does.

    It can all be done very logically.

    D. Decreased skin turgor and a urine specific gravity of 1.035
