Aspirin, chemically 2-acetoxybenzonic acid is a very commonly used analgesic and gives immediate relief in case of body aches.
Even it has antiblood clotting action, in some cases , it causes bleeding from the stomach wall and also leads to gastric irritation .
Actually, aspirin gets hydrolyzed to form salicylic acid which creates problems.
Preferably , aspirin should not be taken in empty stomach.
Hence d is the correct answer.
