    Which starts vs that will be starting

    Id rather watch the US Open tennis .................................................. .....
    a. competition, who starts from 9.30pm;
    b. competition which starts from 9.30pm;
    c. competition, that is starting from 9.30pm;
    d. competition that will be starting from 9.30pm.

    I went with (d), but this one is a bit confusing for me - I think (b) works as well. I'd like to know which one is correct and why. Thanks.

    Generally, things start at a certain time; they are shown from a certain time.

    None of the above is correct.

    Where did you find that exercise?
