A multiple choice question of participle

The picture _____ on the wall is painted by my nephew.

A. having hung B. hanging C. hangs D. being hung

The answer given is B, but I think D can be correct too, can it?

Re: A multiple choice question of participle


You're right, D. is strictly speaking possible in the right context, though bear in mind that it would be a passive clause.

B. is the most plausible, of course.
