    None of the above. Transfusion is a noun, and all the examples are verb forms.

    Also, "would probably mean" is confusing - a complicated verb form that doesn't fit here. Use "means." It's clear.

    Choice a is closest to it, but the phrasing needs to be something like: Replacement of blood.

    Hurry! She needs a transfusion! = Hurry! She needs a replacement of blood!

    Re: help me

    I have already looked up, but I can't understand.
    I think " change " in this sentence means alter, make different,
    cause to pass from one state to another, change the blood of the body completely ( I don't clear ).
    And I think b & c are correct.
    Oh, what I have to do ?
    Who can show me , please !

    Charlie will be back in the forum soon, I'm sure.
    If not, I'll act as backup.
    Just give it a few more hours.
