Correct Answer : d ) has been quarantinedExplanation :
The phrase that fits in to make the sentence grammatically appropriate is ‘has been quarantined’. Quarantine refers to a state, period, or place of isolation in which people or animals that have arrived from elsewhere or been exposed to the infectious or contagious disease are placed.
Option b is not at all making sense as it is grammatically incorrect (use of being with has/have/had is inappropriate).
Option c is in the simple present tense, whereas the given sentence talks of action that has already taken place. Option a is incorrect because it is in the future tense.
Hence, the correct answer is option d.
