In this sentence we would understand the usage of verb in different tense forms. The tense here represents the verb in past, present or future thus they are in different form but have the same meaning. 
Option A is a simple present tense, talks about something that is currently happening
Option B is also a simple present tense which is used while describing something that happens regularly
Option C is a simple past tense, refers to an event or situation which happened once and is now finished 
Option D is a past perfect tense, used to talk about actions that are completed at particular point in the past

In this case, an event has been described which has happened in the past
Option C is correct.
