  1. malaria 

  2. anthrax

  3. measles 

  4. tetanus


Solution

The correct option is C

measles 


Measles is a viral disease caused by rubeola virus. Interferons are proteins that increase the resistance of cells that are attacked by viruses by unmasking genes synthesizing antiviral proteins. Thus, a person suffering from measles shows the production of interferons in his body. Anthrax and tetanus are bacterial diseases and malaria is a protozoan disease.
