The correct answer is c. The Juxtaglomerular Apparatus, which is conveniently located next to the Afferent Arteriole, stimulates the release of renin, which eventually causes an increase in blood pressure. It should be noted that Angiotensin-II can also bind to a receptor that causes the arterioles to constrict, resulting in an increase in blood pressure and blood volume. This can simultaneously occur with the production of aldosterone, which is a mineralocorticoid (which is a steroid hormone).
