Solution

The correct option is B the
  1. An/A' is used as an indefinite article for a thing or person when the reader doesn't know which one we are referring to out of many nouns. It states the random nature of the subject.
  2. 'The' is used as a definite article for a thing or person when the reader knows which one we are exactly referring to. It states the specific nature of the subject.

Option C is correct as 'The' is used with words with superlatives. It shows the uniqueness of the path. Option B is incorrect because 'An' is used with a word having a vowel sound for a single countable noun which is random in nature. Option A is incorrect as 'A best way' sounds illogical. 'One of the best ways' or 'the best way' is grammatically correct.Moreover it doesn't go with the meaning of the sentence. Option D is incorrect as an article is required in the blank to give meaning to the sentence.
