Why not option B?

Why not option B?

Pradeep said: (Jun 29, 2011)  
Since passed is past tense, the second sentence might be in past perfect.

Why not option B?

Because worked is also in past tense.

Though option "he worked hard for it " is not there, but don't you think it should be correct one.

Here two actions happened in the past i.e

1) Worked hard
2) Passed.

But before action 2, action 1 took place. To describe the first action that took place in the past, we use past perfect tense i.e 'had worked hard'.

Worked hardly means he did very less work. So option can never be B.

If two actions occurred in the past, the first action should be mentioned in Past Perfect Tense(had worked) and the second action should be mentioned in Simple Past Tense(passed).

"He worked hard for it" is also the right answer but had not given in the answer go for had worked hard. "worked hardly" is wrong itself.

There might be the answer "worked hard for it", but instead of it the option is "worked hardly for it". So the answer is "has worked hard for it".
