(A) its victims unless inoculated

''its'' in the original sentence used unnecessarily. Am i Right

My choice is A.
If we don't want to use "its" then the sentence should be : the victims unless they are inoculated

My mistake.

B is right choice.

'they are' is necessary to refer to 'rabies victims'. Otherwise 'its' will refer to 'rabies' instead of the victims.

I do not know OA. But i think right answer is B, With piyatiwari. The question is derived from chineese set.
