    getting a degree

    Dear teachers,

    I wish you a Merry Chritmas and a Happy New Year!

    If you are really smart, you will want a lot more for yourself than merely making the grade, getting a degree, and finding a job.Don't be satisfied with just going to college and getting several years older, unless you are content to sleepwalk through life. Learn to recognize your passivity---whether it's a little or a lot---and avoid it.

    Sleepwalking through life means___________________.
    a. making the grade you want b. merely getting a degree
    c. being able to find a job d. avoiding assivity

    The given answer is "b". But to me there is no answer. Or 'a', 'b' and 'c' are all correct answers. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang
