  3. Nope. It's B.

    In A and C, all the words have explainable meanings in the ways they are used in the sentences, but not so with B. The idiom there is "go for it" because it's not clear that anyone is GOING anywhere and it's not clear what "it" is, yet we understand the idea that sentence is trying to get across.
