B. Under 1997 guidelines, for a comprehensive multi-system exam, you have to document a minimum of 18 bullets from at least 9 different organ systems. (2 bullets from each system). The doctor is supposed to perform all elements with a bullet within 9 different OS, but apparently he only has to write down the results from 2 of the bullets in each section. Yes, it is strange, but it's probably meant to avoid lots of redunant entries of "normal" findings in each system. I don't know how you'd prove that all of the elements were performed without documenting it, but I guess nobody's checking...kind of a stupid rule, really. Hope that helps!
