    • A.

      Although

    • B.

      Though

    • C.

      Eventhough

    • D.

      However

    • E.

      Even

    Correct Answer
    D. However
    Explanation
    The conjunctions "Although," "Though," and "Even though" all indicate a contrast or contradiction between two ideas. In this case, the sentence implies that the person didn't pass the exam despite studying hard, which suggests a contradiction. Therefore, these conjunctions cannot fulfill the blank. On the other hand, "However" is a conjunction that introduces a contrasting or unexpected statement and can effectively complete the sentence. "Even" is not a conjunction, but an adverb used to emphasize a surprising result, so it also cannot fulfill the blank.
