Jawabannya C. had been burned

Diperlukan kata kerja pasif dengan bentuk past perfect tense (had+been+verb3) karena kalimat 'they were too late' menunjukkan kejadian 'kebakaran' itu terjadi di waktu lampau dan kata yang tepat untuk dikenakan pada 'Mr. Ramsey's house adalah 'terbakar' bukan 'membakar' sehingga bentuknya pasif.
