Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate option:
His father _____ a doctor and he _____ to make his son a doctor too.


A
was/wants
loader
B
were/wanted
loader
C
will be/would want
loader
D
was/wanted
loader

Solution

The correct option is B was/wanted
Option D: was/wanted is correct. 
Explanation: The subject (his father) is singular, hence was will be used; and the sentence is describing an event in the past, hence wanted 
Option A: was/wants is incorrect: The subject (his father) was a doctor in the past, and wants is in the present tense 
Option B is incorrect: The subject, his father is in singular, so were (a plural) can't be used. 
Option C is incorrect: will be and would want can be used for future tenses (to indicate an action happening in the future). Hence, logically and grammatically incorrect
