I think any of the three could be used, but D is the most expressive.

2.The Lakers scored 20 points in the last quarter,____the Heat 101-96.
A. beating B. having beaten C. to beat D. beaten

I choose A, but the suggested answer is C. which is right?
Both seem to fit.

3. -----Alice is visiting her mother today.

A. will B. can C. won't D. can't
