Answer

Correct Option is A

Solution:Here in “was” must be replaced with “were”. In unreal conditions, i.e., the sentence that doesn’t reflect reality if clause should be used, and if the verb in the if clause is “to be,” use “were,” even if the subject of the clause is a third person singular subject (i.e., he, she, it). This will be followed by auxiliary verb such as “would” in the second part of the hypothetical portion.
