1. In what stage of diabetic retinopathy can bleeding occur?

That's correct. A is the correct answer.

If diabetic retinopathy reaches its final stage, proliferative retinopathy, bleeding can occur. At first, you will see a few specks of blood, or spots, floating in your vision. If spots occur, see your eye care professional as soon as possible. You may need treatment before more serious bleeding occurs.
