    do a good job

    Could you help me with this question:

    Did you do a good ___________ in the last driving test?
    A. career B. work C. employment D. job
    I know that the answer is either "B" or "D". I opt B. work because when you give comment on somebody's work, you usually say "good work" but the answer is "D. job". I don't know why. Thanks for enlightening me.

    "To do a good job" is an idiom that has nothing necessarily to do with work. D is right.
    None of the others work at all. That is, you can't "do a good career, work, or employment" in any circumstances.
