three forms of if.. then statements..

if she wins the lottery, she will give the money to charity.. simple present.
if she won the lottery, she would give the money.. simple past..
if she had won the lottery, she would have given the money.. past perfect.

so, i am confused as to which form i applicable here.. tough i go " with would have finished "

The whole sentense is in past.


The whole sentence is in the future, not past. Its talking about the future when children will get back home and what the mom will have done.
Didn catch which option were you favoring...

My stupid remark "The whole sentense is in past", I take it back.

There are 2 actions in two time frames,
By the time the children get home from track practice ( current )
their mother would(past) have finished putting new wallpaper in their bedroom.
(just before the time of above action ).

To justify the second action before first it has to be "would have finished".

I think A is correct. We need "will" rather "would" , which is uncertain.
Between A and C , we need future perfect ( will have) ..
an action is getting completed in future ..before another action.
