Why is there no 'oleh' in this sentence? Yaitu, 'Kemeja saya dipakai oleh adik saya'

Same question here.

Hai.

When the 'di-' verb is followed directly by the one performing the action (as it does here with 'adik saya' - my younger sister), 'oleh' can be omitted.

And yet, all three possible answers, in the multi-choice version, now include "oleh"! Correct solution given as: "Kemeja saya dipakai oleh adik saya".

So oleh is also correct? But maybe not often used?
