Revital, I am not sure if my logic is right...

But I picked B because, the author seems to be using the second independent clause to prove the first statement that fear of rabies is well founded.

A makes the statement look like it is the authors opinion because of use of "are known to recover" whereas in B "are known to have recovered" makes it sound more like fact.

b/w A and B. Both seem right logically and grammatically. I would chose A for the following reason
1. less words compared to B
2. If A and any other answer choice is right, choose A. A is privileged. :lol:

I would go with B

The contention is only between "A" and "B".

Let us take a closer look at the first part - "The fear of rabies is well founded" - which conveys that rabies is already established as a fatal disease. Now the second part should support this already established fact. How does one do that? By quoting historical data in support of rabies being fatal. "A", IMO does not go as far as "B" in conveying that.

Consider the analogy: "Few people are known to have conquered the Everest by approaching it from its northern accent" VS "Few people are known to conquer Everest by approaching it from its northern accent"
