Why can't copying be used?

I think. He would fail rather than copying is more corect answer.

After noun told is used rather then said.

@Rashmi.

Copying is in present tense and copy is an activity (which is also used with future tense). So "copying" will be used in" neeraj is copying in the exam". So please make comments and corrections as needed!

It is rule - Noun followed by than is in present tense or an infinitive.

Aditya said: (Nov 3, 2015)  
Where we should the word "rather". Can anyone explain please?

It should be- he should rather fail than copying in the examination.

Neel said: (Oct 14, 2016)  
Why use of 'that' is wrong here?

Shovojit said: (Jun 3, 2017)  
Here, rather+ verb base form+ than verb base form.

Ayesha said: (Aug 16, 2018)  
Why "that" is eliminated in the sentence? Please explain.
