ممتازة
الإجابة صحيحة

B is the correct answer.

India ink (choice B) will correctly stain for cryptococcus meningitis.

Congo red (choice A) will reveal amyloid that is characterized by apple-green birefringence in polarized light.

Periodic acid-Schiff (choice C) stains glycogen and mucopolysaccharides. It is commonly used to diagnose Whipple’s disease.

Silver stain (choice D) is used to stain fungi such as pneumocystis carinii. It is also used to stain for legionella.

Ziehl-Neelsen (choice E) is used to stain acid-fast bacteria
