    Why the answer is D? I couldn't understand why it is. Please let me know the clear reason.

    Trend indicates movement in the direction of something.
    That is why the preposition toward (in BE usually towards) is used here. None of the other prepositions work.

    The sentence should also read trend toward the interactive lesson or trend toward interactive lessons.
