Default MRSA multiple choice question



I just finished a 3rd year Nursing exam of which one of the questions were:
If a person comes in contact with MRSA, how long will the MRSA bacteria live
on their skin?
a) 1 hour
b) 3 hours
c) 7 hours
d) 24 hours

My understanding was that MRSA lived for a long period, hence most correct
answer would be 'D'. But no one in my class knows the answer & lecturers won't
help. I've tried researching but all the MRSA sites don't appear to mention
this specific issue.
Help greatly appreciated.

MRSA is not really any different than any other Staph aureus, just more
resistant to antibiotics. How long will normal Staph aureus live on your
skin?
