I think 3 rd sentence should be "is automatically promoted."

Nope buddy. The second sentence speaks abt past tense i.e "HAD DONE" So third sentence is correct, but I guess every student must be replaced by EACH student.

I think Syed Javeed Basha IS correct.

Snigdha said: (Aug 10, 2010)  
i too think syed is correct.

OK if had done is changed to have done i.e every student who have done adequate work WAS... will again become past tense.

If we use "is" there we have to use "have" there I think.

Every is correct because every is used when there are more than two people and each is used when there are two or more than two is used. Here student is taken as a collective noun so every is more appropriate and also had is correct because the case is past perfect.

Option B should be wrong. The correct sentence structure should be.

"Every student who had done an adequate work" the article "an" is missing.

Correct is - In the end of the year.

Why would not were in place of was?

Ram said: (Sep 14, 2015)  
@Rahul each and every is always followed by singular verb.

Arif said: (Dec 19, 2016)  
I think some of the student who had done adequate work will be right answer.

Stark said: (Oct 26, 2017)  
It means "an adequate work".
