Which is the correct answer? b

Please explain the grammar points of a,b,c and d.
b is correct. a, c, and d are wrong.

Only b shows an infinitive of purpose, which is needed to answer the question "Why?"
Hi Bhikkhu

You not only credited your source, but also simply asked a question about a tiny bit of what is to be found there, so I don't think there is any problem at all as regards copyright.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
It´s answer (b) B for Bojangle !!!
Remember this.... you can´t use for and to together.
Regular and irregular verbs in their past form will determine which preposition you use when there is a noun/adjctive after the preposition. ..if you have to use a second verb immediately after the prepositon then the preposition will be a to..if the word following the preposition is a noun/adjective then use for.
If there is no immediate second verb then use for...and either..an article or an adjctive

Hope that helps
