Correct option is A)

AIDS is caused by Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). It has a single stranded RNA with a protein coating. After entry into the host cell, the single stranded RNA is changed into double-stranded DNA by a virally encoded reverse transcriptase. With the help of integrase, the viral DNA gets incorporated into the cellular DNA and starts replicating.
So, the correct answer is option A.
