  1. A is the answer and the winners are Solace and Area
    Details Below:
    Heart failure is a condition that may increase risk of hyperuricaemia. Diuretics
    interfere with the excretion of uric acid and alter the concentration of uric acid
    in blood. This results in precipitation of uric acid salts from the blood which
    become deposited in the joints. A diet that consists of excessive consumption
    of purine-rich food such as meat and organ meat increases production of uric
    acid.
