20 kms aren't a great distance is the correct form.

Option "a" is the perfect answer. Here distance is being referred which is singular.

Although it seems that "kms" would make the answer shift to option "c", but this are the parameters to measure "DISTANCE" which is considered to be one quantity as said by "ARPAN GANGULY".
