The given sentence (Active voice) is in simple present tense
am/is/are+v3 in the Passive voice

I think the correct answer is option C.

Sudarshan said: (Jan 2, 2017)  
I think c option is right because this sentence is present indefinite fence so is /am/ are, are come in sentence +verb 3 form.

Tapas Sharma said: (Apr 13, 2017)  
I think C is correct answer.

Vijay B Didde said: (Jun 21, 2017)  
The sentence is in simple present tense.

The structure of simple present tense in active voice is :[ S + do/does + V1 +obj (or) S+V1+Obj].

When changes in passive voice : [obj as a subject + is/am/are + v3 +by +sub as a object]
here 'greet' is the verb.
