The answer is 1
Rationale:
1. Low hemoglobin causes decreased tissue oxygenation with activity. Shortness of breath is a manifestation of this decreased oxygenation.
2. Fevers and infection would be expected with elevated WBC or low WBC counts.
3. Hemoglobin is not a part of the clotting cascade.
4. GI pain directly resulting from anemia is not as likely as another of these problems.
