    Is this homework?

    No. It's a just a test question. The writer of the question says it's only one correct answer but I disagree. I think all of these options are weird.

    Those more than weird. They're all incorrect.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Which option?

    With extra words, an argument could be made for A and D. The others don't work no matter what you do to the sentence. The second half doesn't help anyway. I would expect something like "... he didn't get the grades he wanted". I don't like "a lot" either! If he studied all day, then it's clear he studied a lot.

    Even though he studied all day, he didn't get the grades he wanted.
    Notwithstanding the fact that he studied all day, he didn't get the grades he wanted.
