Is "continued on playing" wrong usage in this sentence?
I feel "he continued playing" shows present continuous tense while the remaining part of the sentence is not in the present

Pls can someone explain
I marked option D

Option D says "Hoped to return" is it that he now doesn't hope to return, as his hope to return is still there this it would be "hoping to return"

The present continuous would have looked something like this: is (or am or are) continuing. The verb in continued playing is continued (past tense).
