    Welcome to the forum, craneo.

    I suspect that this question is part of a homework assignment. We do not help with homework. However, if you would tell us which answer you think is correct, we will comment on this.

    Please try to give your thread a helpful title. 'Before the train arrives/arrive?' would have given us an idea of what to expect.

    i Is it the right one? Yes.

    pPlease tell me the Grammar of it
    In temporal (time) clauses introduced by such words as when, before, after, etc, we use a present tense. In your example, both arrives (present simple) and has arrived (present perfect) are possible. As the first is not given as an option, the second is the one you want.
