Solution

The correct option is A False
Parasites can be pathogenic in nature, but not all parasites are pathogens. There are certain parasites that do not enter the human body and yet can survive on the resources it snatches from the humans. The best examples of such parasites are mosquitos and leeches. These parasites do not enter the human body, yet they suck the blood and survive on resources obtained from the humans.
