Why can a single endocrine hormone produce a wider spread of responses in more of the body than a single nerve cell?

    A single hormone can target many different responses, whereas a nerve only targets a single response.
    Blood can carry all of the hormone throughout the body simultaneously producing responses all over the body; nerve cells only target a small number of cells.
    Nerve cells and blood work together. The endocrine system has nothing to do with the nervous system.
    Endocrine hormones really only target a very small number of precise responses. The statement is false.
