Which of the following is true for active hyperemia, a local control mechanism within the circulatory system?

A. There will be an increase in force developed by smooth muscles surrounding arterioles that lead into a local region in which there has been an increase in the rates of activity of body cells in that region.

B. There will be less blood flow into a local region in response to an increase in the rates of activity of body cells in that region.

C. There will be a decrease in the potassium conductance of ATP-sensitive potassium channels in smooth muscle cells in response to a decrease in the levels of intracellular ATP in those cells.
