I didn't know which one was better between A and C. Finally I picked A, but I'm not sure that my reasoning was right: the article in this sentence is needed because the speakers is talking about a specific group of people. Is it correct?

Option B changes the meaning by changing the verb tense unnecessarily. Though it may not be wrong, but when two grammatically correct choices are present, we should go with the original sentence so as to convey the exact intended meaning.

What is the source of this question? (Manhattan Prep, Magoosh, Official Guide, Etc.)
It's not structured like any sentence correction question I've seen before...
