This is d. predicate nominative


reference:

A predicate nominative is a subject complement, a word or group of words that follows a linking verb or verb phrase such as is, are, was, has been, and can be. It renames, identifies, or defines the subject or subjects. A predicate nominative always takes the form of a noun or pronoun and helps provide information by categorizing the subject in some way.
