Somebody can help me this answer!
"I ____ work last week, but I changed my mind."
C.have started D.was going to start
The answer is D, but why not B? Câu D có nghĩa là tôi đã dự định làm việc tuần trước,nhưng tôi đã thay đổi ý định => tôi đã không làm việc lúc đó.Nhưng mình thắc mắc sao đáp án không là B,có nghĩa là tôi đã làm việc tuần trước nhưng tôi đã thay đổi ý định => tôi bỏ việc lúc đó???

You have to look at the tenses used in your sample sentence. If you wanted to use answer B, the sentence would look like this: I had started work last week, but I changed my mind. It doesn't really make sense because according to that sentence, it means that you indeed started working and then after you had started working, you changed your mind.... the meaning is kind of vague... So the correct answer is D because the meaning is fully understandable. Because it talks about the past and since the last part of the sample sentence "I changed my mind" is normal past tense, it means that the actions if fully completed. "I was going to start" means you had the intention or the plan to do something but then you changed your mind. That makes sense. Hope I could at least help you a little bit...I'm not an English native speaker but this would be a logical explanation.
If the answer is B, i understand it such as : He had started work last week but he didn't liked that job,he changed his mind and maybe he quitted that job later...These case is so complex.
Hmm this is a tough one... ahh..."last week" is always a signal word for the simple past tense...so you cannot use "had started" because that would be past perfect... that makes sense
