$\sin 36^{\large\circ}\sin 72^{\large\circ}\sin 108^{\large\circ}\sin 144^{\large\circ}$
$\Rightarrow \sin 36^{\large\circ}\sin 72^{\large\circ}.\sin 36^{\large\circ}.\sin 72^{\large\circ}$
$\Rightarrow \sin^2 36^{\large\circ}\sin ^272^{\large\circ}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{10-2\sqrt 5}{16}.\frac{10+2\sqrt 5}{16}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{(10-2\sqrt 5)(10+2\sqrt 5)}{16\times 16}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{(10)^2(2\sqrt 5)^2}{16\times 16}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{100-20}{16\times 16}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{80}{16\times 16}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{5}{ 16}$
Hence (d) is the correct option.
