The absence of vitamin B12 causes pernicious. The absence of ascorbic acid (vit C) causes scurvy.

What is pernicious anemia?

Scurvy gum decay and tooth loss.

Pernicious anemia is deficiency of B12.

Cataract is the correct answer.

This reduction in Vitamin C is due to the eye's impaired ability to secrete Vitamin C into the aqueous humor and the body's overall Vitamin C deficiency.

Pernicious anemia is caused by vitamin B12 deficiency not vitamin C.

Pernicious anemia is due to lack of cobalamin b12 not due to abscobic acid. Which its deficiency leads to ber beri and wernickle kersakoff.

That is not a correct answer because pernicious anemia is caused by the deficiency of vitamin B12 and not vitamin C.

Pernacious anemia is a disease in which b12 is not absorbed in the body. Usually an intrinsic factor is attached with it in stomach but due to deficency it cannot attach to vitamin and vitamin cannot be absorbed in body and condition is called pernecious anemia.

There is metabolic inter-relationship between vit c and vit b12. So, deficiency of one may lead to a deficiency of other vitamins.
