Therefore, the correct answer is 7.

They stop mosquito's sensors

• B.

They make the mosquito dizzy

• C.

They make the mosquito drop dead

• D.

They make the mosquito blind

A. They stop mosquito's sensors
Explanation
Mosquito repellents work by stopping the mosquito's sensors. Mosquitoes use their sensors to detect the presence of humans or animals by sensing the carbon dioxide and heat they emit. Repellents contain chemicals that interfere with the mosquito's ability to detect these signals, making it difficult for them to locate and bite their target. By blocking the mosquito's sensors, repellents effectively deter them from landing on or biting a person.
