    D. Subdural hematoma

This occurs when the blood vessels between the brain and the outermost layer of the brain tear, causing bleeding and the accumulation of blood in the space between these layers. This type of injury is often seen in cases of abusive head trauma, also known as shaken baby syndrome. It can result in serious neurological damage and is a medical emergency that requires immediate attention.

When infrared rays interact with gun powder, they can cause it to emit heat, which can be detected by an infrared camera or sensor. This allows for the visualization and identification of gun powder hidden within a cloth, making infrared rays the best option for detecting it.
