Take out A, B, C --> use of one's, oneself is awkward, and not appropriate unless the noun 'worker' is changed to 'one'

Take out D --> 'them' has no referent

E is the best choice

Hi noboru,

I can offer a bit more clarity here. We need to use the plural "workers" because the beginning of the sentence refers to plural "pensions." A single worker would have only one pension, so we need to keep the plural consistent here. That eliminates A, B, and C. Additionally, "one's" and "oneself" are incorrect in those first three choices.

We need to use "themselves" in order to clarify that we're referring back to the "workers." The pronoun "them" in answer D could refer to "workers" or "pensions," so it's ambiguous and incorrect.

Hope that helps!

(D) workers are compelled to put away to take care of them in

I'm finding it difficult to comprehend the question.. what does "money a worker" mean here? Is it supposed to be "many a worker"?

Thanks..
