    Hi, and welcome. Our forum rules are that you have to make your best attempt first.

    Here's a hint: You can eliminate two of the choices right away because "health" is not a countable noun.
    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.

    My best attempt is that the correct answer is d). The verb in Present Perfect was the hint for me.

    My father enjoys ____ very good health. Actually, he ____a journey around the world once he ___
    mother ____ joining him.

    d) -/is considering making/has talked/into

    I agree with your choice D.
