Default my answer is E

The Qs indicate endotoxin--> related w/ gram (-) or l. monocytogenes

a) pulmonary anthrax---Gram +
b) whooping cough---not too dangerous for using Ig (I think is limited)
c) cholera---fluid treatment
d) leporsy---acid fast microorganism


the only posible asnwe bubonic plague--Yersenia pestis gram (-)
