I wud pick " protein processing " cuz after retrovirus infects the cell it takes over the host cell machinery to replicate its genetic material n translate its proteins... These proteins are synthesized as a large polypeptide chain which "needs to be cut by protease enzyme into different proteins ".. Protease inhibitors inhibit enzyme protease and block this step... So my ans wud be protein processing..

Page 195 FA says

protease inhibitors block Late protein synthesis and processing. guess the last 2 options are correct.
