Does the word 'transfer' have the same meaning as 'transmit'?
I look up in the dictionary, and it says 'transfer' means move and 'transmit' means pass. But they seem to be used similarly sometimes. For example, "Bacteria may be transmitted in a variety of ways" and "MPSA and other bacteria are transferred from one person to another."
In addition, if there is a multiple choice exercise:
"•Long false eyelashes are prone to collect bacteria and dust, which can be _____ to the eyes.
A. Transferred B. Transmitted"
Which one will be the better answer?
Thank you in advance!
