    First interpretation is correct. Then find the meaning of hardly. Your question is best answered on ELL. – Anton Apr 8 at 6:56

    "That's the a Result that you was studying English hardly" and "The reason what you get it is you want to be study English hardly" are both ungrammatical. The original sentence is unusual because normally the adverb hardly is either placed before the main the verb or after the auxiliary e.g. He hardly studies anything and He is hardly ever late. – Mari-Lou A Apr 8 at 6:57

    @Anton you can understand the OP's interpretations? It's barely English. Before this question gets closed (it's not good enough for ELL) user419889 should say where they saw the original sentence or if they made it up. – Mari-Lou A Apr 8 at 6:59

    It is important to know that studying hard and hardly studying have almost opposite meanings. Your question about studying hardly is not understandable to an English speaker. – Peter Apr 8 at 7:18
  • Unfortunately I'm not sure what you are trying to say, the expanded interpretations just add to the confusion. I can't tell whether you mean to say that a good understanding of English and a good grade in the exam are what you get if you study hard or whether a poor understanding of English and a poor or fail grade in the exam are what you get if you hardly study. As @Peter says 'study hard' and 'hardly study' are almost opposites. I think you may have mixed them up. – BoldBen Apr 8 at 7:51
