Answer: (D.) Saliva

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) invades T lymphocyte cells in the body.
The virus can be transmitted only by certain bodily fluids such as blood, semen, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and breast milk.
The virus must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the bloodstream.
HIV cannot spread by air, water, saliva, or sweat.
