    To travel or travel. please?

    Hello, teachers!
    I have seen this and I am confused.
    "Do you want us to travel by bus"?
    "No, I prefer you........by train."
    A.travelling
    B.travel
    C.to travel
    D.will travel

    The key is B.
    There are two constructions of prefer:
    - prefer sb to do sth.
    - prefer (that) + clause in the present subjunctive mood tense.
    So I think B&C are correct. Is it right, please?

    (not a teacher)

    If this were first person, you would use C ("I prefer to travel by train."), but as the sentence stands (second person), only B is correct.
