First think you get from the sentence is that it is of past tense so "A" AND "D" can be omitted. Now in "C" "shall" is used in place of "should". The sentence should have "should have" not "should be", when we preach someone so that left us with the only correct answer present. It is not the best option but considering the choice only one which is correct.
