The following question is quoted from an English exam at a junior high school in Taiwan.
After this experience, Billy decided to lose some kilos. He went to see a doctor and _____ to avoid fast food.
(A) was asked (B) is asked (C) will be asked (D) would be asked
The answer to the above question is A. Is option D also acceptable?
I need native speakers' help.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
I think option D would be acceptable if 'thought he' was added before it, i.e. 'thought he would be asked', but the meaning would be different.
I am not a teacher.
