The correct answer is D.
This Biology question is asking which disease can be caused by a bacterium. The options are Ringworm, Poliomyelitis, Malaria, and Syphilis.
Ringworm is not caused by a bacterium, it is caused by a fungus. Poliomyelitis is caused by a virus, not a bacterium. Malaria is caused by a parasite, not a bacterium.
The correct answer is Syphilis, which is caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease that can lead to serious health problems if left untreated.
It is important to understand the different types of microorganisms that can cause diseases, including bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Bacteria are single-celled organisms that can be helpful or harmful to humans. Viruses are much smaller than bacteria and need a host to survive. Parasites can be single-celled or multi-celled organisms that live off of other organisms.
To learn more about bacteria, viruses, and parasites, please see the relevant sections of your Biology textbook.
