$-NO_2$ group is $e^{\ominus}$-with drawing by induction from all positions but mainly by extended bonding from +ve ortho and para positions.Hence para isomer is less basic than meta isomer.Hence the correct order is
M-nitro aniline > P-nitroaniline > O-nitro aniline
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
