a) Active immunity is quick and gives full response

Explaination::

Active immunity is slow and takes time to give its full effective response. Foetus receiving some antibodies from their mother, through the placenta during pregnancy is an example of passive immunity. Active immunity is the immunity in which when host is exposed to antigens either living or dead, antibodies produces in the host body.
