    Question Please help

    After leaving office, former US president Clinton stated that he _______ harder during his presidiency to achieve peace in the Middle East.

    a- must have worked
    b- has to work
    c- used to work
    d- would be working
    e- should heve worked

    Which one and why?

    It seems to me that the correct answer is C. But, I am not sure.

    Thanks in advance for your help...

    well HARDER there seems to indicate that he didn't work hard enough.

    Now a. would indicate he actually did so
    b. makes no sense, if he left his office then there's no presidency during which he can work harder.
    c. used to work harder than who?
    d. WOULD would indicate he would do it after he said so, so it cannot happen during a presidency he has after he left the office
    e. Right! He should have worked harder, sadly, he didn't.
