Reported speech - What tense should be used?

Postby Nami Nami » Wed Oct 17, 2012 2:30 am

The teacher clarified that all students should also complete the exercises in Chapter 6 although the examination next month ______ not cover this chapter.

1. does
2. did
3. will
4. would
5. or others?

Thanks.

Best answer: would, but 'did' also possible.
