Answer

D: From the context, we know that the bear had spent the entire winter hiding in her lair. As a result, the present tense (Choice B) and simple past tense (Choice C) are incorrect. To form the past perfect tense of the verb, use the auxiliary verb “to have” and the past participle of the verb. The past participle of “to hide” is “hidden,” so Choice D is correct.
