for me it is between A and B.

I think B is incorrect since there should be "lasts" instead of last.

So i will go with A.

correct me if i am wrong..!!!

B. Mild flus is plural, so you should you 'last' instead of 'lasts'

It's between A and B.I will go with A beacuse of || ism ..since treatable is a adjective..we need another adjective after "and" ,that is lasting(acting as participle) rather then "last" which is acting like verb..

correct me if i am wrong in reasoning..!!!
