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.
