What is the right answer?

‪(a) do

‪(b) doing

‪(c) done

‪(d) did

The right answer is (a) do.

I made him do the work. 
 
To make somebody/someone do something (force someone do something they do not want to do) is a stable expression in English. Thus, we have to use DO after MAKE somebody

To remember it easier, use this structure:

MAKE + OBJECT + BARE INFINITIVE*
 
She made me wash the dishes.

He made her clean his room again. 

* Bare infinitive = infinitive without to
