Confused by drill question

Hi there!

Can someone explain this to me?

 

'My big brother never gets tricked by me' 

ani ha zettai boku ni ____

A: damasarenai (passive tense)

 

However I thought the answer would be damasenai (causative tense). 

 

I know what you mean! Actually, if the original English sentence was I can never trick my big brother., "damasenai" works perfectly. But the English sentence is " never gets tricked by me", so the passive form "damasarenai" fits better in this case. But I agree that this question is a little confusing. I'll make it simpler. Thank you for your comment!
