ANS: B
The carbonic acid/bicarbonate buffer pair operates in both the lung and the kidney and is a major extracellular buffer. Protein and fat are nutrients not related to the buffering system. Sodium and potassium are electrolytes for fluid and electrolyte balance, not the major plasma buffering sys-tem for acid-base balance. Amylase is a carbohydrate enzyme, and albumin is a protein; neither is a buffering system.
