    I'll be glad to check your answer.

    I believe the answer is C because since lead based paints have been banned since 1978, then not many homes or toys will be left that contain a sufficient amount of lead to be harmful to your body.

    I disagree. Apparently you didn't read the link I posted.

    Then I'm guessing B since it is the only one that doesn't pose a potential threat to the environment but to you. And it is also not found to be a potential way to contaminate others
