Hi, Azz,

@azz posted:

a. That is an exam he has to work hard to pass.

One meaning of that sentence would be:

1. In order to pass that exam, he has to work hard.

But could (a) also mean

2. That is an exam he has to work hard and pass.

Since "work" is not transitive here, the only interpretation I find possible is (1):

- He has to work hard to pass that exam.
