Show me the Answer
Correct answer is:
  • (B)  iii, iv, ii, i
Explanation:
The first 10 to 15 seconds after exposure to a hazardous substance, especially a corrosive substance, are critical. Delaying treatment, even for a few seconds, may cause serious injury. So, flushing with plenty of water is the first step to take. 20 minutes is generally considered adequate, but for corrosive chemicals as long as 60 minutes may be required.
