The bacteria in milk are destroyed when it is heated to 80 degree Celsius.

why not option A)??

Passive Voice in "Past Future Tense" uses "would be", i.e., when we talk about future in past.

@srestha ma'am can you see references & confirm whether I'm right or not?

This sentence is very new type to me.

See

"The bacteria in milk are destroyed" this is a passive verb in LHS

right?

"when it is heated to 80 degree Celsius."- also passive form.

is not it?

Is both side passive form accaptable?

@Naveen Kumar 3 thanks a lot :)

In layman view we can say, the sentence is in present tense.

So, d) also not a good option.

And a) and b) option given in future tense.

right?

Check this https://gateoverflow.in/313525/gate2017-ec-1-ga-2

Not matching in layman view.

1st one is present tense and 2nd one past tense.

why so? :(
