    Correct Answer
    A. Acne
    Explanation
    Acne is not a sign that someone might be a werewolf because it is a common skin condition that affects many people, regardless of whether they are werewolves or not. Werewolves, on the other hand, are typically associated with characteristics such as hairy palms, a unibrow, and curved fingernails, which are not commonly found in non-werewolf individuals. Therefore, the presence of acne alone does not indicate that someone is a werewolf.

It is said that silver possesses mystical properties that can harm or even kill these creatures. This belief is often depicted in literature, movies, and other forms of popular culture, where silver bullets or weapons are used to defeat werewolves.
