Correct answer is:
  • (A)  Five back blows followed by five abdominal thrusts if necessary
Explanation:
Red Cross recommends a “five-and-five” approach while delivering first aid to a choking victim.

-Give 5 back blows. First, deliver five back blows between the person's shoulder blades with the heel of your hand.
- Give 5 abdominal thrusts. Perform five abdominal thrusts (also known as the Heimlich maneuver).
-Alternate between 5 blows and 5 thrusts until the blockage is dislodged.
