Can you help with this question?

Giardiasis is a communicable illness that is transmitted:

1. through direct and indirect contact
with infected fecal matter

or

2. by touching the moist lining of
the eyes and nose.

I want to say the correct answer is
(A) but can giardiasis be transmitted
through "direct" and "indirect contact"
of fecal matter?

Which would be the correct answer?

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. This question was answered earlier today.

P.S. Here it is: http://www.jiskha.com/display.cgi?id=1176660588

the website doesn't say it can be transmitted directly and indirectly---
that is my question!

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. I've had several rescue animals that have come with giardia and it was difficult to get rid of and to keep my other animals safe. I would then say, directly and indirectly, because ticks and fleas could pass along these parasites. Even after picking up any feces, I understand it can remain in the grass!
