It is one thing for "it" to have an ambiguous referent but it is another to have "it" as an impersonal pronoun. While the former is wrong, the latter is acceptable.
Please refer to the following post:

Honestly, I know C used "out of seawater" is probably not a good idea, but I mean most of the time I would avoid the ambiguous "it" whenever I can. But I guess it is okay when used as an impersonal pronoun. I will watch out for it in the future to check on the consistency in this case. Thanks

I think the problem with C is that it seems that what it is worthwile is "trying to recover", when the correct meaning would be "to recover"
