    1- Students who does not work hard cannot pass the exam.
    2 - Students who do not work hard cannot pass the exam.

    and

    3 - Students not working hard cannot pass his exam.
    4 - Students not working hard cannot pass their exams.
    1 and 3 are not correct.

    2 is correct.

    4 is correct. It can also be written without the "s" in "exams".

    I agree with your answer, but I prefer #4 with "exams".

    You're welcome, Satara.

    If your grammar book selected the other choices, burn it.
