D

Answer

Pulse is a term that signifies the throbbing of arteries as an effect of heartbeat and is counted by the number of beats per minute. The normal pulse rate ( count of arterial pulse beats per minute ) in a healthy adult at rest ranges from 72 to 80 beats per minute. However, the pulse rate may fluctuate with exercise, illness, injury, and emotions.
Pulse rate in an individual can be checked at various points on the body. This is because the pulse may palpate at any place in the human body where an artery can be compressed against a  bone. These are the neck, inside of the elbow,  the wrist,  groin,  behind the knee, ankle joint and foot.
