The correctly matched pair is AIDS virus-Reverse transcriptase.

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is caused due to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in humans. HIV is a retrovirus belonging to the family Retroviridae. The genome of HIV consists of two single-stranded positive-sense RNA enclosed inside a capsid.

To replicate its RNA, HIV uses an enzyme called Reverse transcriptase. The enzyme Reverse transcriptase generates complementary DNA (cDNA) using the viral RNA as a template. The process of synthesis of DNA from RNA is called Reverse Transcription.
