(A) is the right answer.

Some of these infections like hepatitis–B and HIV can also be transmitted by sharing of injection needles, surgical instruments, etc., with infected persons, transfusion of blood, or from an infected mother to the foetus too. ( Medical instruments are treated in 2% glutaraldehyde for disinfection and those intruments do not transmit HIV)
