D. be opened

Karena kalimat di atas adalah kalimat pasif dan karena ada could maka rumusnya 'be+verb3' menjadi 'be opened'.

A. "open" can be the answer, too. ? 

Some verbs like "open", "close", "start", "burn", "break", "melt", etc. can function as Active or Passive voice. These verbs are called "Middle Verbs" in English structure. For examples:

1. The machine won't start

.

2. Stores in the mall open

at 9 o'clock.

3. Plastic burns easily

.

?It's the underline, bro. I was talking about middle verb, but I mistakenly underlined easily, which is an adverb.
