    Just "hit" would be the natural choice.

    If it's just happened (as it did, since the person is saying "Look!") then the present perfect is the answer the test maker is looking for.

    I think you know well enough that you're supposed to give your idea first.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
