      Any metal types

    Correct Answer
    B. Mesh and wire
    Explanation
    Mesh and wire wheels should never be used in a cage for hamsters because they can cause serious injuries to the hamster's feet and legs. The small gaps in the mesh or wire can trap the hamster's feet, leading to broken bones or other injuries. Additionally, the rough surface of these wheels can cause abrasions and sores on the hamster's feet. It is important to provide a wheel with a solid surface, such as a hard plastic or wooden wheel, to ensure the safety and well-being of the hamster.
