My opinion

I think that maybe the question is....."say which of the following answers is NOT correct". And then obviously there is only one answer which is A. I think in my modest opinion that the other three are all suitable.

Hope to have helped you out a little.

Best Regards

All correct, technically. Only D is really clear.

A I don't know that I have passed the exam

Correct. But only in response to a very specific question. Stress on the "have".

B I don't know if I have passed the exam

Correct. "Have" is not strictly needed, but you _could_ use this to a very specific question as above. Stress on the "know" and the "have".

C I don't know what marks have I got in the exam

Correct, but the least correct. Reads better without the "have" but is not incorrect without it, depending on the exact sense of the conversation. Stress on the "what" and on the "have".

D I don't know how well I did in the exam

Correct! If this is the meaning of all four, then this one is certainly the best and the clearest.

Who wrote this question? What exam was this on?

actually, this question is designed for middle school students, which i think is nothing helpful to the students...
