    Hi,
    I would say "to the death" (c) is correct.
    fight to the death: to engage in a battle that isn't finished until one opponent is dead.

    The two men looked as though they were going to fight to the death. These evil-tempered dogs will fight to the death.

    C is correct. "Fight to the death" means "until one of them dies".
