Answer:

I will be on time for the meeting (D)

Explanation:

I would say that this one is because it fits with the explanation for a linking verb:

"A linking verb is a verb which connects a subject to its predicate without expressing an action."

Also, it re-identifies and describes the subject, which is the meeting.

I suggest looking at this website just for some more help with understanding it:
