    It is B. In the other examples, the verbs were done by the subject. A way to check for passive voice is the Zombie method.

    Bombs were dropped on innocent people - would It make sense if we put "Bombs were dropped on innocent people BY ZOMBIES?" Yes, so it is passive.

    For The cat played the piano on a viral video, we can't say The cat played the piano on a viral video BY ZOMBIES. This is active voice.
