Correct Answer : d ) able toExplanation :
The given sentence states that there is a belief among the people that will save the tigress.
Use of ‘ability’ is incorrect because we need an adjective to express the people’s characteristics.
So, ‘able’ is the adjective form for ‘ability’.
‘Capable’ is also an adjective but it cannot be used as we use preposition ‘of’ with it and not ‘to’.
So, the correct phrase will be ‘able to’.
Hence, (D) is the correct answer.
