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?

Not matching in layman view.

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

why so? :(
