Monday’s test was said to be very difficult, so not only Matt but too his friends had to study all weekend instead of hanging out.

a) so not only Matt but too his friends had to study - Idiom Error (Not only x but also y)
b) so not only Matt but also his friends have to study - Idiom Error corrected, however tense needs to be past as the sentence is written in the past.
c) so too Matt and also his friends they needed studying - Idiom Error (Not only x but also y)
d) so not only Matt but also his friends had to study - Correct. Sentence is written in past and idiom is also corrected.
e) therefore Matt and also his friends they have to study - Awkward and wordy.

This is a case of idiom error. Idiom has to be not only X but also Y. Moreover since the first part of sentence is in past tense, the second part has to be also in past tense.
B and E uses present tense. C has awkward construction and does not uses idiom. Similarly A does not use the idiom correctly. D is correct

a) so not only Matt but too his friends had to study
b) so not only Matt but also his friends have to study
c) so too Matt and also his friends they needed studying
d) so not only Matt but also his friends had to study
e) therefore Matt and also his friends they have to study

What is wrong with have to study? It seems as though monday test is coming up after the weekend and therefore Matt and his friends have to study instead of hanging out...

What is wrong with my logic ?
