$\sin 47^{\circ}+\sin 61^{\circ}-\sin 11^{\circ}-\sin 25^{\circ}=2\sin54^{\large\circ}\cos 7^{\large\circ}-2\sin18^{\circ}\cos 7^{\large\circ }$
$\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\quad=\cos 7^{\large\circ}(\sin 54^{\large \circ}-\sin 18^{\large\circ})$
$\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\quad=\cos 7^{\large\circ}(\cos 36^{\large \circ}-\sin 18^{\large\circ})$
$\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\quad=\cos 7^{\large\circ}\bigg[\big(\large\frac{\sqrt 5+1}{4}\big)-\big(\large\frac{\sqrt 5-1}{4}\big)\bigg]$
$\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\quad=\cos 7^{\large\circ}$
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
