    D)  1, 2, 3

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    [a] Scientists have reported how they repaired, using stem cells, muscle damage in mice with multiple sclerosis. Then came a report of easing the symptoms of blindness by using stem cells. All of this was in January. The rest of the year saw a series of advances that collectively took stem-cell therapy forward. They made progress in treating in mice schizophrenia and heart disease, and in humans type I diabetes, AIDS and other diseases. Scientists also grew human muscle and liver tissue using stem cells, and surgeons stitched back a vein grown from a patient's stem cells. Australian scientists reported turning cells in the pancreas into insulin-producing cells with precision. A cure for Type I diabetes is not far away.
