them at the end sounds confusing for the right antecedent. A B C rejected

Between D and E the virus is redundant as "it" gives clear connect to the preceding noun

Chose E

Hi,
I have a doubt regarding the usage of "them" in this question. In the original sentence, doesn't "health care personnel taking care of them" clearly refer back to the infected family members ?
In options D and E; when we introduce "victim" it should, in general, refer to all the infected people and not just the family members right?
Kindly clarify.

I too wrongly selected A, thinking E is pointing to pronoun error. But upon closer inspection, I think choice E makes more sense because HIV infected family members and health care personnel of the victim. In choice A, its unclear who is the victim- a member of the family or the whole family itself?

A, b, c are wrong because of them - no antecedent.

D is wrong because of had infected, a past participle which cannot be happening prior to the action of being taken care of

Could you help explain how "who" is wrong in D?

The who indicates the preceding noun which alters the meaning of the sentence where as taking #verb indicates to the entire preceding clause thus making the sentence clear.

You can get rid of C just by looking "them" . Pronoun ambiguity. So it's between d and e. D has a fatal tense error. So E is the choice.

The pronoun "them" has no antecedent - words such as "victims" or "patients" should have been there in the sentence as an antecedent of "them".
