    Option 3 ( Cholera ) is the right answer

    Cholera is an infection of the intestine by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. Symptoms may range from none, to mild, to severe. The classic symptom is large amounts of watery diarrhea that lasts a few days. Vomiting and muscle cramps may also occur.

    This may result in sunken eyes, cold skin, decreased skin elasticity, and wrinkling of the hands and feet.The dehydration may result in the skin turning bluish. Symptoms start two hours to five days after exposure.Cholera is caused by a number of types of Vibrio cholerae, with some types producing more severe disease than others. It is spread mostly by water and food that has been contaminated with human feces containing the bacteria
