Correct solution "When 1 is unemployed the time passed slow" seems like a mistake...

"time passes slowly while 1 is unemployed" is still an answer. Maybe it should not be as well?

Idiomatically, "Time moves slowly when you're unemployed" should be accepted. The error was on "moves."

"While being unemployed the time was passing slowly" would be the only correct solution not this one.

While i was an unemployed the time passed slowly is the right form

think an acceptable translation should be ' time goes very slowly while unemployed...... adding an additional 'by' after goes is almost never used in modern English.
