To dream the night away.

C. had called

D. calls

Answer: 

So, the correct answer is (b) call

The river runs through your veins

The trees and mountains call your name

The moon and stars watch over

You’re guiding your way back home

To dream the night away.

Step-by-step explanation by Teachoo:

 The sentence is a line from a self-awareness song. The song is about the connection between nature and the self, and the journey of finding one's true identity.

  •  The verb call is in the present tense , which means it describes an action that happens in the present or is a general truth.😊
  •  The present tense is suitable for this sentence because it shows that the trees and mountains are always calling the name of the person, as a way of expressing their bond and belonging. It also matches the tense of the other verbs in the sentence (runs, watch, guiding).😊

            Checking other options-

  • option A. will call  - This option uses the future tense, which means it describes an action that will happen in the future.
  • option C. had called - This option uses the past perfect tense, which means it describes an action that happened and finished in the past before another action in the past. 
  • option D. calls - This option uses the present tense with a singular subject, which means it describes an action that happens in the present or is a general truth for one thing or person.

Therefore, the correct option is B. call.
