    Blood Types!

    Hello, i have a question for Science. It's about how if you donate a particular blood type to someone, they could die, and you know how, Type O is the universal thingo! Do you get what i mean!
    Okay here is the question:

    Which one of these donors and receivers would result in clotting? To answer, sketch in rough a grid for each, showing receiver and donor antigens and antibodies.

    please tell me if the attachments worked!

    1..................Receiver..........Donor
    ....Antigen..........B..................B
    ....Antibody.........B.................B

    2..................Receiver..........Donor
    ....Antigen..........A..................A&B
    ....Antibody.........A.................-

    3..................Receiver..........Donor
    ....Antigen..........A..................-
    ....Antibody.........A.................A&B

    4..................Receiver..........Donor
    ....Antigen..........A&B..............A
    ....Antibody.........-.................A



    Case number 2 would result in clotting (receiver A and donor AB)
