    Which statement is false
    e) humoral immunity involves T-lymphocytes

    This is false according to destroyer.

    But~!
    T cell can be both humoral and cell mediated.
    So that means this statement cannot be false.

    what do you guys think?

    technically destroyer is right eventhough humoral immunity can use T cells to activate their B cells. but activation is not the definition of what humoral immunity is. it is all about what is doing the action of immunity on the target. destroyer is right bc u should associate humoral immunity only with B cells. focus on the flow chart in campbells in the beginning of the immunity section. it outlines how things are activated.

    Ya, to sum it up
    Humoral: B cells
    Cell-mediated: T cells

    Campbells flow chart? Definitely going to check that out for immunity. That's my weakness.
