Regarding the control of water balance by the kidneys:
1. The renal medulla has an osmotic gradient that decreases from the border with the cortex to the renal papilla.

2. ADH is secreted by anterior pituitary in response to a decrease in the osmolality of the blood.

3. A normal person cannot produce urine with an osmolality greater than 300 mOsmil.kg-1.

4. ADH acts on the cells of the collecting ducts to increase their permeability to water.
