1. Reabsorption of drugs in kidney does NOT depend on?
- A. Flow rate
- B. Tonicity
- C. Tubular secretion
- D. pH

1. Read the question.
2. In answering this type of question, remembering the SEQUENCE of a process is helpful in addition to knowing the factors that have effect on each phase. In this case, two other phases, namely Tubular secretion and Metabolism are mentioned. However, Metabolism takes place before a drug’s reabsorption. So in essence, it does affect reabsorption. Tubular secretion on the other hand follows after reabsorption thus it does not affect it.
3. Correct answer is C.
