hmm... Something refreshing... I'm not too familiar with slang, but A looks just a tad too formal. I pick B just for kicks.

A should be it.

You vent spleen/anger/frustration or any negative emotion.
"Rap" is kinda British meaning to speak to/about with sever disapproval as in "The governor rapped the police for poor performance." I don't believe it fits here.
"Interrelate" is not even close.
When you air your opinions/grievances, you make them known to others, often in an unwelcome way. I've never come across "to air one's problems". In any case it would make sense if there were other people in the shack, unaware of the problem.

I have a silly doubt .

Should "The gang" be referred to using "their" or using "it" ?

Ob has given a nice explanation of the meanings of the words used in the other answers. Great going

I agree with you that the gang refers to a group of people (one group). Therefore it is singular and pronoue that should be used is it's:stupid . But this is how I found this question in a test from Peterson test prepartion.

gang is singular. It seems to me that 'the gang went in to see some individuals (at their place)' and to discuss their problems

weird!! not a GMAT type SC.

I got it.

"The gang" is a compound subject
"their' is justified !

Somehow I was not able to digest that one could refer "the gang" using "it".

Yep, "gang" is collective noun. Words like committee, clergy, enemy, group, family, team, etc. refer to a group but are singular in form. A collective noun takes a singular verb when it refers to the collection considered as a whole and a plural verb when it refers to the members of the group considered as individuals.
