The correct answer is:

plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets


Explanation:

The plasma is the largest component (55% total blood volume) and is 90% water. It also contains other proteins, hormones, and waste products. Red blood cells carry vital oxygen throughout the body, and white blood cells are immune cells that fight infection. Platelets are cell fragments that are involved in the formation of blood clots. Together, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets comprise the remaining 45%.
