The answer to this question is B. This is based on the given table. The details are very similar to the sample from the crime scene. Some people only get to have DNA fingerprinting when they have already been caught for a crime before. Some may have a record of their fingerprint depending on the required ID that they have to get.

A lot of criminal are cautious about leaving their footprints at the scene of the crime because they know that it can easily be traced back to them. This is why a lot of people who do crime wear gloves. It will avoid the chances that they will leave fingerprints all over the scene.

Based on the given table, you can already see that Suspect B may be the suspect because the fingerprints match with the fingerprints that are found at the crime scene. Fingerprinting has actually solved a lot of crimes that have occurred over the past decades. People have realized that people cannot share the same fingerprints.

In fact, even those that are considered to be identical twins will still have some fingerprint differences although there are also some similarities that cannot be ignored. Some suspects have also learned to become more clever. They have started using gloves so that they will not leave any fingerprints while they are at the crime scene.
