'Passes the examination' is correct.

According to me,

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

Shouldn't it be what he wanted instead of want cause it is referred to the past tense here?

Shruthi said:   8 years ago
According to me.

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

Please tell me if I am wrong.

Here simple present is used in the sentence so here should be "es" comes the pass.

Yes I agree with @Devesh passes in examination is wrong just pass in the examination is correct. So I think answer is D.

@Devesh:

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

Harendra AK said:   10 years ago

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