The sentence is in active voice thus in passive voice the object 'song' must be written before the subject 'boys' In active voice :
Subject+verb+object
In passive voice:
Object+verb+subject
The tense here is simple past thus 'was sung' is the correct verb to be used here. Option 4 is the correct answer. The other options use incorrect tenses or change the meaning of the sentence
