  4. The correct answer is B.

    B.While studying for her psychology test,Francina had trouble concentrating because her friends were calling her,her brother was blasting his stereo,and her dad was mowing the lawn.

    The part after the word "concentrating" is where the answer lies, but you probably already guessed that. However, all the verbs (if you will) following the word "concentration" follow the same structure, which is the being verb + verb with "-ing" ending.

    - were calling, was blasting, was mowing
