Is the use of the words "passed out" correct within the following sentence -"I passed out of XYZ college contained by 2002"?

Question:I would like to know if the usage is right according to the rules governing use of English as a expression?

Answers:
Passed would be used to describe movement of some sort. Past would be used in hint to time. Examples...

I passed you on the highway this morning.

In the past, I've see you on the highway.

In your sentence, it should be rewritten as "I graduated XYZ college contained by 2002." Because neither passed or past would be appropriate. Unless you are stating you passed out due to excessive drinking. :) However, if you are a moment ago wondering which would be correct, past or passed, surrounded by just the context of your sentence and the information you want to construe and not the proper sentence structure, than passed would be correct because you obviously received ratification grades, passed your exams. :)

I don't know what it means, so my answer would be no.
You could own "graduated from" or "dropped out" (left lacking graduating) or "been expelled from" (kicked out). I would assume you didn't graduate if I saw "passed out". You can vote passed through or passed by but if you mean to articulate you graduated, after no, its not the opposite of "erstwhile out".


I don't know what it money, so my answer would be no.
You could have "graduate from" or "dropped out" (left without graduating) or "be expelled from" (kicked out). I would assume you didn't graduate if I saw "passed out". You can say passed through or passed by but if you denote to say you graduate, then no, its not the contrasting of "failed out".


it is wrong.graduated from is more appropriate


I don't find anything wrong in this statement
