Hint: Try to point out the verb and the form it has been used in the given sentence. Find out the tense of the underlined word and choose the option which agrees with the verb form and is not of similar tense as the underlined word.

Complete answer: We use the third-person singular verb ‘has’ with present perfect tense forms. Hence, the use of ‘being’ is inappropriate in this context, because ‘being’ is used with continuous tense forms. We use the present perfect tense to indicate an action that began in the past and is continuing in the present.
For example- She has written this in her notebook. Here, we can see the use of the third-person singular verb ‘has’ with the third-person singular pronoun ‘she’ and the 3rd form of the verb ‘write’.
In the given question- We can conclude that nature has been very kind to us.
Here, we have used the third-person singular verb ‘has’ with the singular noun ‘nature’ and the 3rd form of the verb ‘be’.
Now, let’s examine the given options-
(a)‘be’ is an incorrect option because ‘be’ is used with modal verbs ‘will/shall’ to form the future tense.
(b)‘being’ is an incorrect option because ‘being’ is used with continuous tense forms.
(c) ‘been’ is the correct option because ‘been’ is used with present perfect tense form.
(d)‘is’ is an incorrect option because ‘is’ is used with simple present tense forms.
The correct answer is Option ‘c’.

Note: The structure of the present perfect tense is; Subject + has/have + 3rd form of the verb/ past participle + Object. Also, keep in mind the present perfect tense only uses the 3rd form of the verb.
