Not necessarily. If there are 2 baskets of snakes on the plane, such that the speaker/writer is tired of the snakes in one of them, either these or those is correct. I think this question is messed up.

I think A is correct. C changes the meaning to refer to another set of snakes :)

I don't want to travel by planes now, thinking of it...

:horror

Well by that logic, even B could be correct... If he is sick and tired of snakes in general...

Agree C is right. I also picked the same.

Can anyone explain Why B is not right?
