Outline the functions of the liver
This is a very straightforward question testing breadth of knowledge rather than depth. It was well answered by the majority of candidates.
This is only a straightforward question if the savvy candidate had thought deliberately about it prior to the exam, as this whole vast massive range of functions does not spontaneously coalesce into a ten-minute answer in one's mind. It really needs a bit of preparation. Fortunately, it has come up many times, and we should all be warned that it will surely appear again.
