Answer is clearly D; cubs did not place themselves on the grass,

How to Remember the Difference between Lay and Lie
(pLAce) and (recLIne)
This mnemonic should help you remember that lay, which begins with the letters L-A, has a long A sound like its definition: to place. On the other hand, lie, which starts with the letters L-I, has a long I sound like its definition: to recline.

yup, this question is clear, it tests the vocabulary of lay and lie.
I lay my love on you -> it cant be that I lie my love on you.
