    I think 'will pass' is right.
    None of the answers are correct, IMO. One should use the simple present tense there -- "passes". It is unusual to use a modal in both the "if" clause and the result clause. Also, "expansive" should probably be "expensive".

    a) has been working

    c)is not watching
    This one can go either way, depending on which part of the week "this week" is spoken in. At the beginning of the week, I would use "is working", "is preparing" and "is not watching". At the end of the week, I would use "has been working", "has been preparing" and "has not been watching". In the middle of the week, one could use either set of verbs.
