Select the correct option for (i) and (ii) from those given below
Consuming high amount of water leads to increased water concentration in blood. As a result, osmotic pressure of the plasma decreases because excess water must be eliminated to maintain normal functioning of the body. Decreased osmotic pressure of the plasma tends to push out excess water from the circulatory system.
Consequently, more volume of urine is produced and the person has frequent urination.
