I'm studying by my textbook 日本語総まとめ 読解 (N3) and faced this exercise. The correct answer is 1 and 5. But I don't understand why the answer 4 is incorrect. Apparently, I'm missing something, but I read this text many times and still don't understand.

  • If Sentence 4 were "この学生たちはドラッグストアに向かうための交差点を通り過ぎてしまったようだ", then it would be correct.

In general 通り過ぎる implies you were in the proximity of that thing. In this case they didn't come close to the pharmacy, so you wouldn't normally use 通り過ぎる.
