43. Arrange the following post-mortem changes in an ascending order:

(i) Cooling of the body  (ii) Greenish discolouration of abdomen   (iii)  Rigor mortis  (iv) Marbling


  1. (i), (iii), (ii), (iv)
  2. (ii), (iv), (i), (iii)
  3. (iv), (iii), (ii), (i)
  4. (i), (ii), (iii) (iv)

-> Cooling of the body: The body fails to produce additional energy to maintain body temperature.
-> Rigor Mortis: Stiffening of the body muscles due to chemical changes in the muscles myofibrils.
-> Greenish discoloration of the abdomen: External sign of body decomposition.
-> Marbling: It is the linear branching pattern like a ‘marbled’ road map of blood vessels that are due to the decomposition of hemoglobin to sulphmethemoglobin which imparts greenish or reddish-brown staining of the superficial blood vessels.
