Solution

The correct option is A Voluntary muscles

Tetanus, also known as lockjaw is a bacterial infection caused by Clostridium tetani, which is commonly found in soil, saliva, dust or manure. The bacteria generally enter from the soil through a break in the skin such as a cut or puncture wound. They produce toxins that interfere with normal muscle contractions resulting in muscle spasms i.e it affects voluntary muscles. So, the correct answer is 'Voluntary muscles'.
