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.

childrens(wrong)

Now, Possessive of children---children's

(C) establishing a fund for the children’s future education---correct,as mentioned above

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

(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.
