The answers to this question are wrong. AB blood type can only donate to AB do to the facts that both A and B have antigens around they surface that will cause other blood type to form antigens that will attacks that type blood. However, AB blood type is a universal recipient.

People with blood type AB can only donate to other AB people, Although they can receive blood from A,B,AB, and O so this question is seemingly backwards.

AB is a universal receiver therefore it can receive of A,B,AB,O but can only donate to AB. AB has antigens A and B and no antibodies. So if it is given to anyone other than AB an immediate immune response would occur

They can only donate to AB and O. If someone with AB blood donates to someone with A, the B antibodies present in the A blood will attack the AB blood.
