Question

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is the antidote for lead poisoning. It is administered in the form of 

Solution

Correct option is

Calcium dihydrogen salt

EDTA forms a more stable coordination complex with lead than with calcium or sodium and in this form passes out form the body without harmful effects. The calcium salt is used so that any excess of EDTA will not remove Ca2+ ions from the body.
