Explanation:

The full form of AIDS is Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome. AIDS is the last stage of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) infection caused by the weakened immune system, infected by a virus. It interferes with the body\'s ability to combat infection.

AIDS spreads through the establishment of sexual contact with the HIV-infected person. HIV spreads with the entry of infected blood, semen, or vaginal fluid into the body.

Symptoms of the HIV-infected person remain unnoticeable or asymptomatic until the critical stage of the disease is reached.  

The symptoms of AIDS include weight loss, fever, night sweats, fatigue, and recurrent infections.
