The answer can be even "give him what ever he wants".

Devesh said: (Jan 25, 2012)  
D should also be a right answer because .. i think " passes in the examination " is not correct... " pass' in the examination " should be correct as my perception.

I think there should be gave instead of give.

Radhakrishna said: (Jun 18, 2014)  
@Nitika : As the sentence is representing feature so we should use give.

Ya can anyone give the explanation for Devesh question.

Harendra Ak said: (Oct 22, 2014)  
@Devesh: Yes you are right.

"passes the examination" is correct, not "passes in the examination".

Yuvabharathy said: (Oct 30, 2014)  

'he' is 3rd person singular so passes is correct.

Durga Prasad said: (Apr 30, 2015)  
Yes I agree with @Devesh passes in examination is wrong just pass in the examination is correct. So I think answer is D.

Tilak said: (Jul 9, 2015)  
Here simple present is used in the sentence so here should be "es" comes the pass.

Shruthi said: (May 16, 2016)  
According to me.

It should be "passes the examination" not "passes in the examination".

Please tell me if I am wrong.

Monisha said: (Dec 7, 2016)  
Shouldn't it be what he wanted instead of want cause it is referred to the past tense here?

Sanjay Sharma said: (Jul 13, 2017)  
According to me,

Passes is correct because "he" is a singular noun so that "verb first form + es/ s in present simple.

Hitesh said: (Mar 26, 2018)  
'Passes the examination' is correct.

Kumlachew said: (Mar 20, 2020)  
What is the problem on the use of what instead that?
