I was wondering where the rest of the options (apart from A) were!! 8-) Damn neat of me isn't it?

Anyway, discard the options that say a position

among A, B and C, C can easily be eliminated as it says the position, holding it for the rest of his life, of income... making the statement incomplete. You need a phrase to complete the need the word holding creates in the option

Eliminate B for the position, and held it for the rest of his life, that... this changes the meaning of the sentence (because the last phrase doesn't modify the position)

Agree A.

Next time please post the question in arranged form.
This makes difficult to compare different options.
