Solution

The correct option is B

blood transfusion


The correct option is B.

Explanation of the correct option:

Option B:

  1. HIV-positive individuals have the potential to acquire AIDS. It is HIV's most advanced stage.
  2. However, merely having HIV does not guarantee that a person will get AIDS.
  3. By way of the interchange of bodily fluids, AIDS is spread. Because there cannot be a fluid exchange during an embrace, AIDS cannot be spread through hugs.
  4. A test called ELISA, which stands for "Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay," and the western blotting technique can be used to identify HIV infection.

Explanation of the incorrect options:
