You had better wait until the policeman _____?
should the answer be come, comes, had come or will come
'Had better' is an expression with a similar meaning to 'should', but it implies a little more urgency. Even though 'had' is past tense, it refers to something in the future, waiting for a policeman in this case. 'Comes' is the correct word.
You had better wait until the policeman comes.
You should wait until the policeman comes.
