It is a thumb rule of grammar that in "if.. then" conditional sentences if the conditional clause takes a present tense, the main clause will take either the simple present such as - is /are (in more general /universal phenomena ) or the simple future such as will/will be etc in more specific cases.

Ex:
If the students are encouraged, they come out with sterling performance
If an airplane arrives late, it will also depart late.

Will be is required for the correct answer ...

Incorrect options are highlighted in RED, correct answer must be (D)

Please explain why ''will be should be used'' and not the conditional ''would'' for future tense.

As it is a condition based sentence, is it not appropriate to use 'would' in place of 'will'?
acc to me , option 'a' is correct choice.

Different types of conditional sentences take different tense combinations. For example:

Certain future:
IF simple present, THEN simple future. - option D correctly uses this form

Unlikely future:
IF hypothetical subjunctive, THEN conditional (would) - option A mixes simple present with conditional (would) wrongly.

I would suggest that you read a good GMAT guide first (e.g, Manhattan SC guide) before you attempt questions. It is essential to have these concepts cleared for a high score.

I'm afraid this is not a correct perception. There are four types of conditional sentences and not all of them entail 'would', as you can see below.

CONDITIONAL SENTENCES
There are four types of conditional sentences: Zero Conditional, First Conditional, Second Conditional, and Third Conditional

Zero Conditional used for general truths and perpetually occurring real things: If clause = if +present tense, the main clause also in present tense

If children get caught in the rains, they catch cold

2. First Conditional real facts: if clause = If + present tense, then main clause = future (will) + bare infinitive
(Bare infinitive means the base form of the verb)
Example: If I have enough money, I will buy a house (future tense)
3. Second Conditional unreal and hypothetical: If clause = if + simple past tense, then main clause = would or might or could + bare infinitive
If I were Bill Gates, I would donate \$100 to Mother Theresa's Ashram every month.
4. Third Conditional unreal and contrary happening: If clause = If + past perfect, then main clause = would have + past participle
Example: If I had stuck to my first post, I would have become a Director in the Board.
