    A)  Hookworm       

    B)         tapeworm

    C)  Threadworm     

    D)  ringworm

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    [a] You can become infected with hookworms by coming into contact with soil that contains their eggs or larvae. The larvae enter your skin, travel through your bloodstream, and enter your lungs. They also travel to your windpipe and are carried to your small intestine when you swallow. Fully grown, they can live in your small intestine for a year or more before passing through your faces. People who live in warm climates in areas with poor hygiene and sanitation are more at risk of suffering from hookworm infections.
