Correct option is
A

start

Both begin and start convey the same things, but there is a key difference in their usage.  Begin is more formal than start, and is more often used for new activities being undertaken by people, whereas start is less formal and is used often to talk about inanimate objects / machines or to 'cause' something. In this case however, 'start' is more appropriate as begin doing is technically an incorrect grammatical form, even though it is used commonly. Thus the answer is Option A) - Start. All the other options are inappropriate.
