    C. causing the host cell to produce new viruses. this is how HIV works. HIV contains RNA which is reverse transcribed into DNA. These DNA is then inserted into host's chromosome so that these integrated RNA will be translated into RNA by host transcription machinery. More RNA made, more new virus. I hope this helps.
