Reduction in pH of blood will

  • reduce the blood supply to the brain

  • decrease the affinity of haemoglobin with oxygen

  • release bicarbonate ions by the liver

  • reduce the rate of heart beat

Answer

B.

decrease the affinity of haemoglobin with oxygen

Reduction in pH of blood that is an increase in acidity favours the dissociation of oxyhaemoglobin thereby giving up more O2. phenomenon occurs due to increase in C02 concentration then it is called Bohr effect.
