    Solution:

    The first sentence within the given question suggests that B’s coat is already wet, which indicates that it absolutely was raining since some extent within the past which
    a) it had been either raining till this point, or
    b) it still went on to rain.
    Thus, the correct option must show that the rain continued from the past to this. Therefore, the proper answer must be within the present perfect tense progressive tense.
    Let us analyze the choices given to us during this question:
    Option (a.), 'the rainy weather' suggests a cause that 'B's’ coat got wet. It also doesn't include any preposition like ‘of’ before 'the rainy weather' which might make 'the rainy weather' a cause that ‘B’s’ coat got wet.
    Therefore, option (a.) is wrong because the right answer must be within the perfective imperfect tense.
    Option (b.), 'the rain’s been falling' does have tense, because it doesn't go like ‘the rain has been falling.’
    Therefore, option (b.) is inaccurate. the correct answer must be within the present perfect tense imperfect.
    Option (c.), 'it's been raining' may be a phrase within the present perfect tense imperfect. Thus, it indicates that the rain has continued since some extent within the past, to some extent within the present, or remains continuing.
    So, the proper answer is “Option c”.
    Option (d.), ‘it might raining', is grammatically incorrect as 'might' could be a modal and not an auxiliary verb, which is required to create it grammatically correct.
    Therefore, option (d.) is inaccurate.
