'Passes the examination' is correct.

Priya said:   1 decade ago
The answer can be even "give him what ever he wants".

Devesh said:   1 decade ago
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.

Nitika said:   1 decade ago
I think there should be gave instead of give.

Radhakrishna said:   1 decade ago
@Nitika : As the sentence is representing feature so we should use give.

Ya can anyone give the explanation for Devesh question.

Harendra AK said:   10 years ago
@Devesh: Yes you are right.

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

YUVABHARATHY said:   10 years ago

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

Durga Prasad said:   9 years ago
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:   9 years ago
Here simple present is used in the sentence so here should be "es" comes the pass.

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.
