I agree, the he excludes "a secretaria" from the solutions

Is there such a thing as a subjunctive conditional tense? And if there is would it be used here since the sentence is about an opinion?

I don't see any subjunctive here, but pretérito perfeito and condicional (futuro do pretérito)

In the multiple choice exercise:

"The secretary did not like to know he would lose his position" - "O secretário não gostou de saber que perderia o cargo."

In this case, it cannot be "A secretária".

Indeed. I also think 'a secretaria' cannot be 'he'.

Eu acho que não cabe outra resposta aqui. Como vai usar a secretária, se tem o " he"
