AA medical symbol, comprising a staff with one snake coiled round it, no wings
BA symbol of commerce, comprising two snakes coiling round a staff, often surmounted by two wings
CA type of Greek urn
DA venomous snake

Correct Option: 2  

Explanation:
A symbol of commerce, comprising two snakes coiling round a staff, often surmounted by two wings
The staff represents that carried by Hermes, or Hermes Trismegistus, or Mercury who are the Greek and Roman (respectively) messenger and herald of the gods. The medical symbol is the rod, or staff, of Asclepius; the caduceus is sometimes mistakenly used instead.
