Danny's code works for when file.pdf is in the same directory as the pg file, as OP describes.

An alternative that is better in some (not all!) situations, is to put the file in the course's html/ folder. That folder is parallel to templates/, so you navigate up one level in the File Manager to get there.

And then replace alias('file.pdf') with:
alias("\${htmlDirectory}file.pdf")

And if you really want to hard code a link to that file in one specific course's html/ folder, then replace  alias('file.pdf') with:
'https://webwork.myschool.edu/webwork2_course_files/mycourse/file.pdf'
where myschool and mycourse are edited appropriately.

To decide what is best, think about the consequences of how the .pg file is coded, and what will happen if it propagates to other courses.
