    2. It replaces the α sub units with γ sub units
    3. It binds 2,3 BPG tightly
    4. All of the answers are true

    5. Two alpha and two delta sub units
    1. Fetal hemoglobin is comprised of two alpha and two beta sub units
    2. Fetal hemoglobin always stays in a relaxed state, hence it is capable of uptake of oxygen at a rapid rate from the maternal blood
    3. Fetal hemoglobin does not bind with 2,3-bisphosphoglycerate
    4. Fetal hemoglobin gives up oxygen more readily than myoglobin, but to a lesser extent than adult hemoglobin
    5. The oxygen affinity trend is given by fetal Hb > myoglobin> adult HB
