    I see you have asked the same question here.

    You had every right to do so as I accidentally deleted this thread earlier today—for which I apologise.

    C-The dragon with a/the golden tail flies like a bird. (with corrections)
    A and B are correct as written. With the addition of an article, C is also correct.
