The Prime Minister was so moved by the performance of the talented residents from the orphanage that he decided to offer them jobs as soon as they completed their education.
(A) from the orphanage that he decided to offer them jobs
(B) of the orphanage as to offer them jobs
(C) from the orphanage as to offer them jobs
(D) of the orphanage that he decided to offer them a job
(E) of the orphanage as to offer them a job
Residents of v/s Residents from Residents of : We use residents of when want to relate person with his/her country or place. Examples : Resident of United States, Resident of New Jersey, Resident of Delhi Residents from : This is mainly used to show ban or to save residents from any thing. Japan mulls banning residents from evac zone.] We want to save residents from any terrorist attack.
Here we have orphanage which is a place so "Residents of " is correct usage. This removes A,C.
Between Job and Jobs : Here president wants to offer jobs to residents when they will complete education. Here president is not offering a single job which all residents will be doing together. He is offering job to individual so it should be jobs. It removes D and E so B should be correct answer. _________________
