Illuminated is right option.

It means decorating building etc with light.

Illuminated is correct one it means to decorate somthing with lights where lightend means to give light but it may be not in the sense of decoration so option c is the correct one.

Illuminated: to MAKE a place bright with LIGHT, or to shine a light on something.

Brilliant sunshine illuminated the scene.

Government buildings are ILLUMINATED on the Republic day.

Lighten: to become brighter or lighter in color, or to make something brighter or lighter in color.

The skies lightened and the rain stopped.

So, difference is Illumination me SOME EQUIPMENT or bla bla. Will make something bright whereas LIGHTENED me something ITSELF will become bright LIKE CLOUDSS.
