Option 1) a & b are correct

REGULATION OF KIDNEY FUNCTION -

The functioning of the kidneys is efficiently monitored and regulated by hormonal feedback mechanisms involving the hypothalamus, JGA and to a certain extent, the heart.

-

Kidneys are not only involved in the excertion of nitrogenous waste but also in the formation of RBCs and absorption of calcium from the GI tract through calcitriol hormones. When the artificial kidney are used, both of these functions will be compromised.
