It is pointless to try to study if it is not fun, then it becomes a chore. At that point, you will either hate your studies or became afraid of them.

GKomoku,

The two choices differ by a single word. Play close attention to the words "Children's" and " Childrens' " :-)

Only one of the two is a possessive noun.

(A) the establishment of a fund for the children’s future education

(B) the establishing of a fund for the future education of children

(C) establishing a fund for the children’s future education

(D) establishing a fund for the childrens’ future education

(E) the establishment of a fund for the childrens’ future education


Parallelism :
Providing, Helping, and establishing.
Eliminate A,B,E

Singular Possessive Vs Plural Possessive
Plural possessive makes sense when efforts in war are being discussed.
Eliminate C

Answer Option D is Correct.
