B. A cell that is yet to encounter its complementary antigen
C. Another name for a B or T memory cell
D. A cell that doesn’t have the receptors needed to fit any antigens

A. The site of infection
B. The Blood Stream
C. Towards antibodies
D. To the Lymph Nodes

C. To recognise a particular antigen and create antibodies against it
D. To create Cytotoxic T Cells rapidly
