Correct option is A)

  1. Diarrhea is the condition of having at least three loose or liquid bowel movements each day. It often lasts for a few days and can result in dehydration due to fluid loss.
  2.  Signs of dehydration often begin with loss of the normal stretchiness of the skin and irritable behavior. This can progress to decreased urination, loss of skin color, a fast heart rate and a decrease in responsiveness as it becomes more severe. 
  3. These infections are often acquired from food or water that has been contaminated by feces, or directly from another person who is infected. Hence, the mode of infection of diarrhea is food.

So, the correct answer is 'food'.
