Correct Answer : b ) was able to attend

Explanation :

The given sentence expresses a situation or event of the past. It tells that the person went to Sweden and attended his best friend’s wedding.

The former part of the sentence makes use of the past simple (was). Similarly, the latter part will also make use of the past simple.

The use of ‘being’ is incorrect here because ‘being’ is used for continuous tenses in passive.

It should be ‘was able to attend’.
