  1. A is the answer and the winner is Essein.
    Details Below:
    When heparin is administered by intravenous or subcutaneous injection, it has
    a rapid onset of action and an average halflife of 1.5 h. There is variability
    in halflife ranging between 1 to 6 h depending on a number of factors such
    as renal impairment and liver disease. It carries a risk of bleeding and the
    patient should be monitored for signs of haemorrhage.
